College Lacrosse: No. 1 Notre Dame upset at home

The reigning national champions won’t have to worry about the pressure of a perfect season in 2024 as the Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team fell at home in overtime to No. 19 Georgetown on Sunday, 11-10.

Georgetown got things started early, jumping out to a 3-1 lead after one period of play.  From there it out it was a back and forth battle that Notre Dame could never quite get ahold of.

Jeffery Ricciardelli took a feed from Pat Kavanagh to put the Irish ahead 9-8 with 8:41 left in regulation but Georgetown would answer with a pair of goals themselves to retake the lead.

Kavanagh would tie things up late in regulation, forcing overtime but Georgetown was able to stop Notre Dame’s first possession and land the game-winning goal from Aidan Carroll on their first overtime possession.

Notre Dame falls to 2-1 on the young season and returns to action at home against next weekend when they welcome No. 4 Maryland to town.
