NCAA Men’s Lacrosse: #4 Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse (2-0) Faces #16 Drexel At Home On March 6


 No. 4 Notre Dame (2-0) will open its 2011 home schedule against No. 16 Drexel (1-2) on Sunday. The opening faceoff is slated for 1:00 p.m. (ET) inside the Loftus Sports Center.  Notre Dame improved to 2-0 for the fifth straight season with a 6-2 victory at Penn State on Sunday.

 Sunday will be the fourth meeting all-time between Notre Dame and Drexel. Notre Dame leads the series 2-1. The Dragons captured a 7-6 overtime victory against the Irish last season in Philadelphia, Pa.

 The two teams have only met once at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish produced a 13-6 home victory over the Dragons during the 2008 season. That was the final game held at Moose Krause Stadium. A win on Sunday would give Notre Dame a 3-0 record for the fourth straight season.

 Notre Dame used six different goal scorers and a stingy defense to defeat Penn State 6-2 last Sunday in University Park, Pa. The two goals allowed by the Fighting Irish defense were the fewest since a 12-2 win over St. John’s during the 2009 season. Notre Dame sophomore goalie John Kemp made eight saves, while his counterpart Austin Kaut had 15 stops for Penn State. Nicholas Beattie, Ryan Foley, Zach Brenneman, Max Pfeifer, Westy Hopkins and Eric Keppeler all netted goals for the Fighting Irish. • Notre Dame out shot Penn State 42-19 and the Irish forced 16 turnovers. Fighting Irish senior defenseman Kevin Ridgway forced a game-high three turnovers. Senior long-stick midfielder Andrew Irving and junior midfielder Devon Dobson both had a team-high three ground balls for the Irish. The Nittany Lions held a slim 7-5 edge in the faceoff circle. Irish freshman Liam O’Connor was 4-for-8 in faceoffs and senior Jake Marmul was 1-for-4. The two scores were the fewest-ever for Penn State in the 18 all-time meetings against Notre Dame.

 Drexel will bring a 1-2 record into Sunday’s showdown. The Dragons are coming off a 14-13 setback to Villanova on Tuesday. Drexel opened the season with a 12-9 loss at Virginia before topping Albany 14-7. Senior attackman Scott Perri and sophomore attackman Brendan Glynn both have a team-best eight goals this season. Perri also has team-high totals in assists (6) and points (14). Junior Mark Manos has all three decisions in goal. He carries an 11.08 goals-against average and a .587 winning percentage. Drexel went 10-5 last season, including 3-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) to finish second in the league. The Dragons were ranked 15th in the final Inside Lacrosse rankings. The Dragons returned seven starters and 22 letterwinners from last season’s squad. Head coach Brian Voelker is in his second season at Drexel.
