Kavanagh sparks Notre Dame past Maryland

BALTIMORE -- Matt Kavanagh scored five goals and assisted on two others to help sixth-seeded Notre Dame beat No. 7 Maryland 11-6 in the NCAA Division I semifinals on Saturday.

Conor Doyle had a goal and three assists for Notre Dame (12-5), which makes its second appearance in the finals on Monday against top-seeded Duke. Attackman John Scioscia and midfielder Nick Ossello netted two goals apiece for the Fighting Irish, who outscored the Terrapins 4-1 in the third quarter to build a 10-5 lead.

Goalkeeper Conor Kelly made 14 saves to anchor a suffocating defensive effort by the Fighting Irish, who will be seeking their first national championship. Defenseman Stephen O'Hara put the clamps on Maryland leading scorer and first team All-American midfielder Mike Chanenchuk, who was held to two goals and an assist after totaling nine points in last Saturday's quarterfinals.

Midfielder Joe LoCascio also scored two goals for Maryland (12-4).
