SU got a huge conference win on Friday

Syracuse

The Syracuse Orange field hockey team came into their final ACC regular season home game with something to prove. The Orange had dropped to No. 4 in the nation a few weeks back and had to watch as conference rivals Duke and North Carolina sat ahead of them.

The next poll should be a little different as the Orange dominated the Duke Blue Devils, 5-1, on Friday.

SU completely took control from the get-go, with two goals from Roos Weers and Emma Lamison en route to a 4-0 lead at the half. Duke got on the board in the second half but Elaine Carey's seventh goal of the season neutralized it.

SU outshot Duke 14-10 and converted on five-of-10 penalty corners while goalie Regan Spencer made five saves.

The Orange now head to Cornell on Sunday. Game time is at 3 p.m. in Ithaca, New York and you can watch the game the on Ivy League Digital Network. SU has three more games after that and then it'll be ACC Tournament time.
