In the first round of the Women's NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse Championship Tournament, the fourth seeded and fourth ranked Syracuse University Orange women's lacrosse team welcomes the unseeded and ninth ranked Dartmouth Big Green women's lacrosse team to the Carrier Dome for a Mother's Day tilt on Sunday May 13th at 4pm. The Orange women look to bounce back after having their 15-game winning streak broken last week by the Loyola Greyhounds in a 13-7 loss in the Big East Tournament final.
This Sunday's game will be the second meeting this season between the two teams as the Orange women defeated the Big Green 22-4 on April 9th in Syracuse the first time around.
Dartmouth enters the game riding a 6 game winning streak including last week's victory in the final game of the Ivy League tournament. The Big Green upset the number 1 seeded Penn Quakers 6-4 to win their first Ivy League Tournament title, avenging a 9-8 loss to Penn in the inaugural 2010 Women's Lacrosse Ivy League Tournament. Sunday's game will be 15th meeting all time between the two teams, with Dartmouth holding an 8-6 series lead, but Syracuse has won 5 of the last 7.
