Two goals from Meghan Root gave the Orange a 2-1 overtime win and their first ACC win two years. Syracuse is now 3-7-2 (1-3-1) on the season but the team also scored another kind of victory earlier this week
Syracuse will host the Miami Hurricanes on Sunday afternoon in an Orange Out game.
Volleyball- The Orange lost both games last weeekend against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Duke Blue Devils to fall to 1-3 in the ACC. Syracuse welcomes the #3 Pittsburgh Panthers on Friday evening before hosting the Virginia Cavaliers on Sunday afternoon.
Field Hockey- Syracuse split their road trip last weekend. The Orange defeated the California Golden Bears 4-3 in overtime as Charlotte de Vries notched the game-winner to complete her hat trick. Syracuse lost a close 2-1 game to the Stanford Cardinal and return home this weekend to face the #1 North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday afternoon.
Ice Hockey- The Orange lost 4-3 to the #7 Boston College Eagles. Syracuse defender Jessica DiGirolamo scored a goal and added two assists and was named the CHA Player of the Week for her efforts. This weekend the Orange will host the Northeastern Huskies for a pair of games.
Men’s Soccer- Syracuse suffered a 4-0 defeat at the Duke Blue Devils to drop to 0-2-2 in ACC play. The team is back on the road again to play the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday afternoon before returning home for a Tuesday night tilt with the Connecticut Huskies.
Cross Country- The teams won’t compete until the Nuttycombe Invitational on October 18 but the Syracuse women were ranked 15th in this week’s USTFCCCA Coaches Poll while the men remain 12th. This is the highest ranking for the women since the 2016 preseason poll.
Tennis- Five Orange athletes competed in the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa. Freshman Polina Kozyreva won three matches while the doubles team of Sofya Golubovskaya and Sofya Treshcheva won one. Syracuse is back in action next weekend at the ITA Northeast Regionals.
Since the football game for the week is over this weekend is a great time to catch these teams in action in-person or on the ACC Network. G’ORANGE!
