Of the Syracuse Orange men's lacrosse program's 13 games this season, eight of them have come down to a one-goal differential. With their 9-8 win over the Georgetown Hoyas on Saturday, that makes it five games in a row. This might not go down as one of the best seasons in SU lacrosse history, but it sure might be the most heart-attack-enducing.
Dominic Lamolinara did not make a save in the first quarter but came up big in the final 45 minutes to lead the No. 3 Syracuse men's lacrosse team to a 9-8 win over Georgetown at the Multi-Sport Field.
SU limited the Hoyas to one goal in a 38-minute stretch spanning the final three quarters and held off a late Georgetown charge to get the victory.
John Desko thinks the team seems to be escaping (or not escaping in some cases) due to some serious wear and tear...
"I think what you saw was the accumulation of so many games in the last couple of weeks," SU head coach John Desko said of the late defensive breakdowns that gave the Hoyas a chance. "I'm very happy to get out of here with a win today."
Derek Maltz and JoJo Marasco led the way with three points each while Luke Cometti added two goals.
The Big East regular season title will be on the line this Saturday when Syracuse plays the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the second game of the 2013 Konica Minolta Big City Classic in MetLife Stadium. Their 6:30 p.m. game follows Cornell vs. Princeton at 4 p.m.
