CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia men’s lacrosse team will be looking to bounce back from its first loss of the season, as the third-ranked Cavaliers host No. 10 Notre Dame on Saturday.

UVA fell 23-12 against top-ranked Maryland last weekend.

That’s the most goals they’ve allowed in a single game since 1978, and head coach Lars Tiffany is hoping to see better Team Defense against the Fighting Irish.

“Can we play good help friendly defense?” says Tiffany. “We’re going to try to win some match-ups but elevating our team defense, meaning our slides and recoveries, if we can play well team defensively, with slide schemes against Notre Dame then we have taken a good step forward. “

Virginia hasn’t lost back-to-back games since 2017.

The third-ranked Cavaliers are scheduled to host No. 10 Notre Dame on Saturday at one o’clock.
