For the first time in the history of their program, the Syracuse Orange men's soccer team won an NCAA Tournament game on Thursday, defeating the Cornell Big Red 1-0.

Senior Lars Muller scored the game-winner in the 10th minute and the Orange held on to give Cornell only their second loss of the season. With the win, the Orange advance to a November 18th date with No. 14 VCU at 7:00p.m.

The winner of that game will play the winner of Georgetown and Charlotte. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's savor this win first and foremost:

"It was an outstanding, hard-fought national tournament game," SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. "I am very proud of our guys to find a way to come into a difficult environment and get a result tonight. "I'd also like to congratulate Cornell on a wonderful season."

Syracuse now has 13 wins on the year, the 2nd most in school history behind the 1986 team.

Cornell outshot the Orange 17-10 but the defense held strong all night. Cornell's Daniel Haber, the NCAA's third-leading goal scorer and Ivy League Player of the Year, was held scoreless.
