Stephen Brundage scored three goals, and 15th-ranked Loyola used a big first quarter to defeat No. 9 Notre Dame, 13-7, in men's lacrosse before 1,644 at Geppi-Aikens Field.

The Greyhounds (2-2) controlled possession in the opening period by winning six of seven faceoffs and built a 4-0 lead behind two goals from Brundage and one each from Matt Monfett and Andrew Spack. Brian Hubschmann put the Fighting Irish (1-3) on the board with 4:56 remaining in the first quarter, but the Greyhounds scored the game's next three goals to build their lead to 7-1.

Notre Dame cut it to 7-3 with 8:01 to go in the first half on scores by Pat Walsh and Steve Clagett. Spack countered nearly four minutes later to make it 8-3. Matt Howell got the Irish to within 8-4 by halftime and Owen Mulford made it 8-5 early in the third quarter, but got no closer.

The teams traded the next two goals, but after Notre Dame's Dan Berger made it 9-6, the Greyhounds kept the Irish off the board for the next 18:42.

Walsh led Notre Dame with two goals. Dan Glazer made 12 saves for Loyola.
