Jim Marlatt scored three goals and added two assists as No. 4-seed Notre Dame defeated Yale, 13-7, in the first round of the NCAA lacrosse championship at South Bend, Ind.

Notre Dame (12-2), which had nine different players score, advances to play defending champion Virginia on Sunday in Philadelphia. Yale, which had won nine straight games, ended its season at 11-5.

The Irish scored the first four goals from four different players in the first 8:04 before Yale responded, scoring four of the next five goals. Notre Dame’s Sean Rogers snaked home a key shot with seven seconds to go to set the halftime score at 6-4. Yale led in shots at intermission, 15-12.

The Irish took total control in the third period. After Ryan Foley scored, Marlatt scored twice in 1:37, and Will Corrigan added another as Notre Dame established a 10-5 edge heading into the last quarter.

In addition to Marlatt’s hat trick, the Irish had two goals apiece from Rogers and Conor Doyle. Daron Dempster led Yale with four, all assisted by Matt Gibson.
