Classes have just started, but the Syracuse Orange the sports season is already starting. Each week, we’ll recap the Olympic sports and do our best to keep everyone up to date on their seasons.
Syracuse suffered a 5-1 loss at #17 Princeton on Friday. After their first loss of the season, the Orange bounced back with a 3-0 win over #25 Monmouth. Charlotte de Vries scored a hat trick and Brook Borzymowski faced just one shot to win the shutout.
Two more wins for the Orange as they close out the non-conference portion of their schedule on a six-game winning streak. Syracuse beat Binghamton 2-0 and Cornell 3-1 to improve to 7-1 this season. Erin Flurey and Chelsea Dormond lead the Orange with four goals while goalkeeper Shea Vanderbosch is 6-0 this season with only three goals against.
Syracuse will face Duke on Friday to open a three-game homestand to begin play in the ACC.
The Orange went 1-2 in their home tournament. They defeated Hofstra by falling to Army and Yale. Syracuse is now 4-5 on the season and next weekend will be heading to UConn to complete the non-conference schedule.
Ian McIntyre and the Orange started the week marching to Storrs and beating UConn 5-0. Five different Syracuse players found the back of the net while Russell Shealy stopped all seven shots sent. Then on Saturday, #24 Orange hosted #22 Fighting Irish while celebrating the 30th anniversary of 1982 Great East champion team. Don’t let the 1-0 final fool you: it was ‘Cuse’s total dominance. Try 22 shots against only three from our Lady. The ball barely reached the Syracuse side of the field thanks to exceptional defense and control.
On Friday, Syracuse fielded some of its best runners at the Penn State Spiked Shoe Invite and Orange swept the team competition. Savannah Roark, Sage Brooks and Ellie Lawler took the top three spots as Syracuse easily passed Penn State. On the men’s side, Nathan Henderson and Nathan Lawler went 1-2 to lead the way. The men knocked out a Butler team that qualified for the NCAA last year, which could be a valuable win for the Orange.
The teams are back in action in two weeks when they send teams to Boston and Oklahoma State compete.
