Syracuse pulled away late in the first half and extended its lead throughout the contest to push past Northwestern, 11-7.

No. 3 Syracuse (9-1) edged No. 7/8 Northwestern (4-3) 11-7 Sunday afternoon at the Carrier Dome and earned its first victory over the Wildcats in 11 meetings to improve its record to 9-1.

“No matter what players they have on the field they know how to win,” Alyssa Murray said. “I think that’s very telling of our team this year. We were able to dig deep and even though they came out and scored two quick ones on us, we were able to bounce back from that and make a good run on them to close out the game.”

The SU women's lacrosse team is back, returning a fair share of offensive weapons before playing against Boston College on Tuesday in the Carrier Dome.

The Syracuse women’s lacrosse team may be young, with 10 new freshman players on the squad this year, but the team’s youth does not deter their confidence.

In fact, head coach Gary Gait was clear in his belief that the team is ready for their season opener against Boston College on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the Carrier Dome, even if nearly a third of his roster has no collegiate experience.
