The Syracuse Orange women’s ice hockey team will open NCAA play against the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Thursday night at 6:00. The game will be played at Ohio State as the winner of Syracuse-Quinnipiac will face the top-seed Buckeyes on Saturday.
Syracuse enters as the number 11 seed after winning the CHA regular and post-season titles. They will be led by veteran players Abby Moloughney, Jessica DiGiorlamo and Arielle DeSmet. Quinnipiac is the number 6 seed and has a 25-9-3 record this season. The Bobcats lost to Colgate in the ECAC semifinal and they lead the all-time series with the Orange 5-3.

Good luck to the Orange!
