Attention class, it has been a busy week, so lets get right to the week that was.
Last Week: The Orange opened the week on Tuesday, when #3 Cornell skated into Tennity. Revenge was on the minds of the Orange, who were beaten by Cornell 9-2 earlier this season. The good gals opened the scoring in the first, and trailed 3-2 after two periods. However, Cornell scored two early goals in the final period, and skated home with a 6-3 victory. Junior Holly Carrie-Mattimoe scored her team leading 10th goal of the season.
Next, Syracuse hosted "Skate for the Cure" weekend, as Niagara traveled east for a weekend pair of games. On Friday, the
Orange Pink trailed 2-1 after two periods, but scored two goals in a 57-second span to take a 3-2 lead. Undeterred, Niagara potted the tying goal in the last minute, and the teams skated to a 3-3 tie. Jenesica Drinkwater made 21 saves for Syracuse, who outshot NU 13-1 in the first period, and 34-24 for the game.
On Saturday, SU and Niagara were tied at 1 in OT, when NU scored with 1:26 remaining, to skate away with the 2-1 win. Kaillie Goodnough scored the lone SU goal (her fourth of the season), and Kallie Billadeau made 28 saves. The Orange are now 8-15-3 (0-3-3) on the year.
This Week: Syracuse travels to Connecticut for a weekend non-con series with Quinnipiac.
Last Week: The Orange got back in the win column on Sunday, with a 70-68 victory at Seton Hall. Syracuse, the top rebounding team in the nation, trailed 68-62 with 1:24 remaining, but outrebounded the Pirates 7-2 in that span, and scored the last eight points of the game to head home with the win. Iasia Hemmingway's three point play with 26 seconds remaining put SU ahead for good. Kayla Alexander scored 23 to lead the Orange, who improved to 13-7 (2-4).
This Week: The big, bad, bullies of the Big East, the #3 ranked UConn Huskies come to the Dome on Wednesday (side note: tickets are only $2 for "Pack the House" night). Syracuse has not defeated UConn since the 1995/96 season, and UConn leads the all-time series 33-12.
On Saturday, Cincinnati makes a visit to Syracuse.
Last Week: Syracuse traveled to Texas, and lost 6-1 to No. 51 ranked TCU. The bright spot for SU was senior Emily Harman, who defeated No. 92 ranked Stefanie Tan 6-3, 5-7 (10-5). The Orange are now 0-2, and TCU is 1-0.
This Week: The Orange host their home opener on Friday, with a match against St. John's at 6pm. See you there!
