Robert Morris University Athletics

It has been a carousel for tenth-ranked Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse this season, to say the least. Up and down, up and down, up and down the horses have gone.


The Orange started out hot at 4-1. But ever since the trip to Durham on March 25, SU has dropped four of its last six. One of those four losses came this past Saturday, with Syracuse falling and then some to Notre Dame 22-8. The Orange gave up ten goals in the second quarter, coughing up a 17-2 run that began in the second frame. 


The Ostrom Avenue Podcast Ep 64- MLAX Season Finale

4 hours ago

After a humbling loss to ND, Syracuse men's lacrosse tries to bounce back and end the season right versus Robert Morris. Hosts Ben Shulman and Johnny Gadamowitz speak with RMU head coach Andrew McMinn (7:20-24:36) about the matchup, and the Colonials this season.

Kavanagh, #4 Notre Dame Bully #9 Syracuse 22-8

Notre Dame Athletics

Pat Kavanagh might be the youngest player up for the 2021 Tewaaraton Award, but the sophomore is certainly making a case for the prestigious title. Yesterday against Syracuse (6-5, 2-4 ACC), the attackman’s school record 10 points led Notre Dame (7-3, 3-3 ACC) to a dominant 22-8 victory.



It’s been a roller-coaster of a season for 9th-ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse. The Orange began the year as a top-five team in the country, and then proceeded to lose on opening day by seven goals. SU then won its next four contests, but lost three of four right after. With many writing Syracuse off headed into last week’s road game against 7th-ranked Virginia, the Orange found a way to rise above the naysayers and took down the Cavaliers 13-11. 


Few superlatives can describe Jakob Phaup’s bounce-back performance at the face-off x this afternoon. Masterful? Dominant? Sublime? Whatever word you choose, it probably encapsulates Phaup’s performance to a tee. The junior won 24 of 27 available draws for the #11 Orange (6-4, 2-3 ACC) in their 13-11 upset victory over #5 Virginia (10-4, 2-4 ACC) in Charlottesville. 

The Ostrom Avenue Podcast Ep 63- CNY to UVA

Apr 23, 2021

For the second time this year, Syracuse men's lacrosse takes on Virginia with the Orange looking for the series sweep. Hosts Ben Shulman, Owen Valentine, and Johnny Gadamowitz preview the matchup with UVA head coach -- and LaFayette, NY native -- Lars Tiffany (10:35-40:00).



No. 11 Syracuse hit its rock bottom point in the season in Saturday’s 21-9 loss to North Carolina. But there’s no time to dwell for SU. The Orange get a second-straight top five opponent in the form of No. 5 Virginia this Saturday, a team that the Orange are familiar with. SU throttled the at-the-time No. 3 Cavaliers 20-10 back on February 27. Yet, that was nearly two months ago, and now it’s the Orange who find themselves struggling.

Elite Tar Heel Offense Overwhelms Orange, 21-9

Apr 18, 2021

Syracuse fans ought to be thankful that time of possession isn’t a stat in lacrosse. Were that the case, #5 North Carolina would have dominated. UNC’s (9-2, 2-2 ACC) offense was in Syracuse’s (5-4, 1-3 ACC) bubble all afternoon, en route to a 21-9 beatdown.

Back to ACC play for the Syracuse men's lacrosse team. SU closes out the season with three teams ranked in the top five, starting with UNC on Saturday.  Hosts Ben Shulman, Owen Valentine, and Johnny Gadamowitz speak with Tar Heels head coach Joe Breschi (8:07-35:32) about the North Carolina men's lacrosse team this year.
