When you think of two straight for ninth-ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse, you normally think of it as two straight wins. The Orange are rolling with no setbacks or bad losses whatsoever. It should be a no brainer, right?

Syracuse Struggles on Defense Again, Falls to Notre Dame

Apr 5, 2021

It’s not panic time yet for fans of Syracuse men’s lacrosse, but there might be some cause for concern. The #4 Orange (4-3, 1-2 ACC) played poorly in several facets of the game in Saturday’s 18-11 loss against #9 Notre Dame (5-1, 1-1 ACC).

Owen Caputo collected a cross-field pass from Nakeie Montgomery. He lightly jogged as he looked down field toward goalie Drake Porter. Saam Olexo guarded closely, he didn’t want to give up a 15th goal to Duke. The No. 1 and No. 4 teams sat deadlocked at 14 apiece with 3:30 remaining in regulation.

Syracuse had this game circled on their calendar ever since the season began. The No. 4 Orange traveled down to Durham and fell 15-14 to the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils.

Cuse has been electric on both sides of the field all season. They rank 2nd in goals per game in the ACC (16) and Drake Porter’s .590 save percentage entering tonight led the conference. However, the middle of the field gave Syracuse their biggest issue.
