Irish Lacrosse Moves Up In Poll After Last Second Win Over Albany
The Fighting Irish Lacrosse team jumped up three spots in this week's Media poll after needing a last second goal by Peter Christman to beat Albany 7-6. The win improves Notre Dame to 3-0 on the season and moves their program-record home winning streak to 15 games. Notre Dame is currently fifth in the USILA coaches poll and sixth in the Nike/Inside Lacrosse media rankings; which is the highest the Fighting Irish have been ranked in either poll this season.
Notre Dame is now 3-0 for the first time since the 2003 season. The Fighting Irish are back in action today at Villanova. Game time is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. (ET) at Villanova Stadium. Notre Dame leads the series 7-4 and are 4-1 against the Wildcats in Philadelphia.
