      Before Sunday’s scrimmage between Princeton and defending champion Notre Dame, Tiger coach Matt Madalon said freshman Nate Kabiri was starting at attack.

      “Not because he’s a Georgetown Prep guy,” said Madalon. “Because he’s really good.”

      Kabiri, a Top 5 recruit in the Class of 2023, had a hat trick on his high school field, leading a dominant Princeton effort that featured a mix of old and new. They won, 20-7, unofficially after five quarters (the score was not posted, though it was announced to the near-capacity crowd, and IL kept notes). Princeton led 18-5 after four, and 14-3, after three, when subbing became much more liberal.

      It was quite a show for Princeton at the Bob Kemp Lacrosse Classic, as they played a resoundingly slick and tough brand of lacrosse despite the graduation of an impact class.

      A few annual reminders about fallball: The final score only matters so much, as teams rotate in players more freely and work on new things that aren’t a true gameday representation. Notre Dame was without more than a dozen players due to injuries. Most notably, of course, were the Kavanagh brothers at attack. In short, don’t expect Notre Dame to lose any game by 13 goals come spring, but if you are a Princeton fan you should surely feel excited about the result.

      Braedon Saris scored the opening tally off a pass from Coulter Mackesy, who was locked in a physical battle with the Notre Dame defense and dished it off. Mackesy and Colin Burns (also from Georgetown Prep) paired with Kabiri for a first attack unit that looked in spring-like in form.
