Syracuse WLAX: Orange Move On In NCAA Tournament To Face Boston College

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Up next for the women's lacrosse team...those pesky Eagles.

Apologies for the tardiness but I'm guessing you know by now that the Syracuse Orange women's lacrosse team was the one that took care of business in their opening round game. SU easily handled Stony Brook in a 13-6 victory.

Senior Alyssa Murray scored the first four goals of the game to spark Syracuse in its 13-6 victory against Stony Brook in the NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament second round. The Orange improves to 19-2, tying the school record for most wins in a season.

"I was very happy with the way the team played today," said Syracuse head coach Gary Gait. "They came out and executed from the opening whistle. It was an awesome first half. That's one of the better goalies in the country and we shot incredibly well. We were prepared and I was really happy with the effort we put in."

SU moves on to the Elite Eight where they'll face-off against a familiar foe, the Boston College Eagles. The Orange bested the Eagles 11-9 on the road earlier on the year but BC still sports a 15-5 overall record and is coming off an 8-3 win over a Loyola team that took SU to the brink last week.

Even though the #OrangeEagle has already been decided, there's still a lot of points and bragging rights on the line.

The game will take place on Saturday, May 17 at 1 p.m. ET in the Carrier Dome. Remember, it's not too late to get on the bandwagon.
