Jim Marlatt scored three goals and added two assists as No. 4 seed Notre Dame defeated unseeded Yale 13-7 in the first round of the NCAA lacrosse tournament.
Notre Dame (12-2), which had nine players score, advanced to play defending champion Virginia next Sunday in Philadelphia. Yale, which had won nine straight games, ended its season at 11-5.
The Irish scored the first four goals in the first 8:04 before Yale responded by scoring four of the next five goals. Notre Dame's Sean Rogers snaked home a key shot with 7 seconds left before halftime to make it 6-4.
The Irish took total control in the third period. After Ryan Foley scored, Marlatt scored twice in a span of 1:37 and Will Corrigan added another as Notre Dame established a 10-5 edge heading into the last quarter.
Daron Dempster led Yale with four goals.
