The Syracuse women's lacrosse team extended its win streak to three with a 17-12 victory over Boston College Wednesday evening at the Newton Campus Lacrosse Field. The Orange improved to 5-2 on the year, while the Eagles fell to 4-6.

Syracuse never trailed in the contest, registering the first four goals just five minutes in. Senior Michelle Tumolo found a cutting Alyssa Murray 33 seconds in to jump start the Orange offense. Junior Katie Webster, sophomore Kailah Kempney and Tumolo all scored during the run. Kempney had her best game yet, recording a team-high three goals for her first hat trick of the season.

Despite its record, the Eagles fought to the bitter end, trailing 7-4 before the Orange would erupt for four of the final five goals and head into halftime with a 11-5 lead.

The Eagles drew first blood in the second half, however, it was freshman Kayla Treanor stepping up to the plate and assisting on freshman Kelly Cross' goal and then scoring a goal of her own to increase the Syracuse lead to 13-7.

Cali Ceglarski responded with an Eagles goal of her own, but Murray and Treanor would not be denied as the two scored back-to-back goals to give the Orange its largest lead at 15-7 at the 17:10 mark.

Boston College would try one last push, scoring four unanswered goals to cut Syracuse's lead to 15-11 with 3:35 left to play. Freshman Erica Bodt found the back of the net -- her first goal since the Jacksonville game nearly two months ago -- to snap a 14-minute scoring drought. With 48 seconds remaining in the second, Boston College's Moira Barry scored, cutting the deficit to four, but one last goal by sophomore Devin Collins on an assist from senior Caz-Marie Norwich sealed the deal for the Orange as time ran out.

All-in-all, it was a good day at the office for Syracuse as 10 different players scored on othe offensive end including: Kempney (3g), Murray (2g, 3a), Treanor (2g, 1a), Amy Cross (2g), Kelly Cross (2), Bodt (1g), Bridget Daley (1g), Webster (1g) and Collins (1g)

Sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Richardson would get the start in goal for the Orange, turning away two, while junior Alyssa Costantino started the second half in goal and recorded two saves.

The Orange will have only two days to prepare for No. 4 Northwestern on Saturday, March 30, in Evanston, Ill. The Wildcats escaped with 9-8 win over Ohio State Wednesday evening. Draw is set for 1 p.m. CT on the Big Ten Network.
