Freshman attacker Bryce Clay had a hat trick in Michigan's 12-9 loss to Notre Dame.

Despite valiant efforts and a strong defensive presence, the Wolverines (3-4) fell to the Fighting Irish (4-2), 12-9, on Tuesday night.

Senior defenseman Nick DiCaprio was one of multiple nontraditional faceoff players used for the Michigan lacrosse team.

However, the Golden Eagles charged back ferociously, leading by as many as seven goals throughout Saturday’s game. Despite a three-goal rally in the dying moments of the fourth quarter, the Wolverines (3-3) fell to Marquette (4-3), 16-13, in their first, true road loss of the season.

Senior midfielder Brent Noseworthy set a program record for goals as Michigan beat St. John's on Saturday.

With this goal, his second of the day, Noseworthy surpassed 2017 graduate attackman Ian King to become Michigan’s all-time leading goal scorer, notching 95 goals during his career as a Wolverine thus far.

Six additional goal scorers accompanied Noseworthy to lead Michigan past the Red Storm 16-11 on Saturday. Senior midfielder Decker Curran led the way for the Wolverines with four goals, while Clay and sophomore attackman Kevin Mack each reeled in hat tricks also.

Fifth-year senior goalkeeper Tommy Heidt made 15 saves in Michigan's victory over Jacksonville on Saturday.

Down one goal with 11.8 seconds left in the game, Jacksonville midfielder Evan Tyler dodged ferociously off the wing and dished the ball off to midfielder Jack Dolan, setting up what seemed to be the perfect opportunity for a game-tying goal for the Dolphins.

But fifth-year senior goalkeeper Tommy Heidt stood his ground, warding off Dolan’s shot as time expired, icing the game for the Michigan men's lacrosse team, 11-10.

Senior Brent Noseworthy scored his 100th career point in Michigan's 17-16 double overtime loss to Drexel.

As it did in its first game of the season against Cleveland State, the Michigan men’s lacrosse team held a multiple goal lead at halftime against Drexel. And, as they did 10 days ago, the Wolverines once again failed to completely shut the door on their opponent.

Mira Shane made sure the Big Green worked for all of their goals. She had a season-high 16 saves in Sunday’s matchup, a game that saw the Wolverines come away with an 11-10 victory after a weather-induced delay, a full 60 minutes of regulation and two overtimes.

Molly Garrett scored the overtime goal to give Michigan the victory.

Less than 5 minutes later, the junior midfielder was back on the field. Forty-eight seconds into the second overtime period, she had the same opportunity, but this time she converted for her fourth goal of the season, breaking the tie and giving the Michigan women’s lacrosse team (4-0) an 11-10 win over Dartmouth (0-2).

Senior midfielder Brent Noseworthy scored a goal at a critical moment to lead the Michigan lacrosse team to victory.

But the Vikings would not go down without a fight. The Wolverines narrowly escaped the Krenzler Dome with a 10-8 victory over Cleveland State Saturday, fighting off a comeback from a persistent, gritty Viking squad to advance to 1-0 on the season.

Michigan returns nine of its 10 starters and 87 percent of its production from a season ago.

“We want to play a more up-tempo style,” said Michigan coach Kevin Conry. “We have the horses to do it.”

Conry’s “horses” include nine of 10 returning starters from last season, who accounted for 87 percent of the team's offensive productivity in 2018.

On the surface, it’s not immediately obvious what drew Kevin Conry to coach the Michigan men’s lacrosse team.
