All the No. 2 Syracuse Orange women's lacrosse does is score goals. Lots of them.
They pushed their winning streak to nine games and scored 20+ goals for the second-straight game (first time since 2008) in a 22-11 route of the No. 14 Georgetown Hoyas.
For the second consecutive game, junior Michelle Tumolo led Syracuse with eight points (5 goals, 3 assists) to tie her career high. Freshman Kailah Kempney also tied her career high with five goals, while freshman Devon Collins tallied five goals in a game for the first time in her career. Overall, nine players registered goals for the Orange.
"I’m extremely happy again today with our performance," said Syracuse head coach Gary Gait. "We stepped on the field prepared and ready to play. I think both ends of the field were very well organized and prepared. We executed our game plan to perfection – certainly in the first half and throughout the game. We had many players contributing on the offensive end, we had lots of players get in on defense so it was a great team effort from top to bottom."
Gary Gait's squad finishes up the regular season on Tuesday when it heads to Ithaca to take on the No. 15 Cornell Big Red, where they hope to avenge the men's team's loss last week.
After that, it's the Big East Tournament where they'll be the favorite to win it before NCAA Tournament time for the 10-2 Orange.
