Syracuse Orange fall sports are starting off so we’ll try and keep you updated each week on what is going on with the other Syracuse teams.

Women’s Soccer- After starting the season with two home wins, the Orange have dropped three straight on the road having been shut out in all three. They will be looking to break through at St. John’s Red Storm this week before returning home to face the Fordham Rams next Sunday afternoon.

Volleyball- Coming off the program’s first NCAA appearance Syracuse dropped their first two matches of 2019. The Orange lost to the #17 Baylor Bears and #11 Marquette Warriors and will be back in action next weekend for the Kansas Invitational. Syracuse will play the Moorhead State Eagles, Arizona Wildcats and host Kansas Jayhawks.

Field Hockey- The Orange lost 2-1 to the Cornell Big Red to fall to 3-1 on the season. Syracuse is ranked 23rd in the country this week and they will look to rebound when they host #14 St. Joseph’s Hawks next Friday night in a game that will be broadcast on ACCNX. Charlotte deVries leads the team with five goals and eleven points on the season.

Men’s Soccer-This weekend the men’s soccer team drew two at home, Friday night playing the Yale Bulldogs to a 1-1 draw and following it up with a 2-2 on Sunday against #22 New Hampshire Wildcats. The Orange looked good in both, fighting as a young squad through the Yale game, and ultimately giving up a two goal lead in the UNH match, likely due to some tired legs from the first overtime game. Of note, left winger Ryan Raposo added his fourth of the year against New Hampshire. He also rallied his second assist.

Sophomore midfielder Simon Triantafillou was the lone goal scorer against Yale with his second on the year. Defensively, Sondre Norheim got his first run of the year and looked good in both matches. Newcomers Anferny Sinclair and Brian Hawkins both are looking impressive on the young season. The Orange host the Louisville Cardinals this Friday at 7pm at the SU Soccer Stadium.

Cross Country- Syracuse will next compete on Friday September 20th in Boston. Check out the recap of the Harry Lang Invitational here.
