ACC WLAX Tournament: Syracuse Survives Notre Dame Comeback, Wins 16-11

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

The Orange move to play defending champ North Carolina in the ACCT semis.

The Syracuse Orange women's lacrosse team scored the first four goals of their ACC Lacrosse Tournament quarterfinals match-up with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and never really looked back. Ahead 8-3 at halftime, the Orange sustained their lead and withstood a late comeback attempt by the Irish to secure a 16-11 victory.

"I thought it was a great game," Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said. "It was a very strong Notre Dame team that never gave up. They kept fighting back and I thought our players never got frustrated – they just stayed positive and finished the game. Notre Dame went on a couple runs but we responded pretty well. I thought our two big attackers (Murray and Treanor) had exceptional games today and I thought they handled the defensive schemes Notre Dame threw at us. I was happy with everyone's play."

Alyssa Murray led the Orange with five goals while Amy Cross and Kayla Treanor both added three.

Syracuse has now won ten-straight games, though they'll be putting that streak to the test on Friday at 3:00 p.m. ET when they face-off against the defending national champion North Carolina Tar Heels for the second time in three weeks. The Orange defeated the Tar Heels 12-9 on April 12.
