After losing two straight, No. 9 Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse is back in the win column. SU (5-3, 1-2 ACC) never trailed Thursday against UAlbany (5-3, 3-2 America East) and won 13-8.

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.

The March shooting in Atlanta that left six Asian women and two others dead along with other recent acts of violence against Asians across the country have exposed previously overlooked anti-Asian racism in America,  and even here in the city of Syracuse.

Onondaga County residents 30 and older are newly eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and those 16 and older will soon follow. New York State announced the change Monday. Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon has been calling for expanded eligibility in order for the county to maintain its current vaccination pace.

The #4 Syracuse men’s lacrosse team is 1-1 against ranked opponents this season. SU lost to then-ranked #13 Army 18-13, and then the following week dominated then-ranked #3 Virginia 20-10. However, this Thursday is Syracuse's toughest opponent of the season: second-ranked Duke.

Chase Scanlan, SU Down Holy Cross 15-6

Mar 21, 2021

Fans took their seats in the Carrier Dome to watch Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse put on a show, and that is exactly what happened. The Orange completely dominated Holy Cross on Saturday 15-6.

After a rocky opening day for fifth-ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse, it seems as though the team has found its footing. The Orange have won three-straight games possessing one of the most potent scoring attacks in the country and a defense that seemed to take strides against Stony Brook, surrendering just nine goals and 23 shots on goal last Saturday. But, a chance to win four consecutive contests almost didn’t happen this week with an unidentified member of Hofstra testing positive for Covid-19.

There were no fans this time around for the Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse game. Nevertheless, SU handled business on Friday, downing Stony Brook 17-9.
