Recent UNC transfer Nicky Galasso will miss all of the 2013 men's lacrosse season for the Orange due to injury
SU attackman Nicky Galasso will undergo surgery for a lower-body injury. The surgery will force Galasso to miss the entire 2013 season for the Orange.
Galasso, a native of West Islip, N.Y., transfered to Syracuse this season after spending the last two years playing for the University of North Carolina. During his time with the Tar Heels, Galasso recorded 65 points (30 goals and 35 assists), including 24 goals and 32 assists as a freshman in 2011.
The Orange opened up the men's lacrosse season with two exhibition wins against Hofstra and Holy Cross Saturday morning in the Carrier Dome.
Syracuse 15, Hofstra 10
After weeks of practicing with the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team, playing against similar Orange shirts can get a bit repetitive for Derek Maltz.
The junior attackman made good use of his first shot at another team Saturday, netting four goals and an assist to help the Orange hold off Hofstra, 15-10 in the first game of an exhibition series Saturday afternoon at the Carrier Dome.
After a disappointing 2012 season, the Syracuse men's lacrosse team looks to improve in 2013 with the addition of a young transfer and lots of returning veterans
A lot of the talk around Syracuse’s men’s lacrosse team before the 2013 season has been about the new additions, specifically a big transfer from the University of North Carolina. Head coach John Desko, though, prefers to focus on returning players from last year.
Syracuse couldn't battle back from a three-goal deficit to beat rival Georgetown in a Big East matchup
The motto for the Syracuse Orange lacrosse team this season is "head, heart, hustle." The Orange showed none of those three H's in today's 10-8 loss to Georgetown. A spotlight was shined on the team's seniors before the game, honoring the last time they took the field in the Carrier Dome. But that spotlight went out as soon as the first quarter began.
The Orange take home the Kraus-Simmons trophy for the sixth-straight year.
The Hobart-Syracuse rivalry dates back to 1916. The Orange lost that first game almost 100 years ago, but have controlled the series ever since. Syracuse took home the Kraus-Simmons trophy for the 71st time tonight with a 13-12 victory that came down to the final seconds. The Orange dominated the first half, taking a 10-4 lead into halftime. But a series of mistakes and some great play from the Statesmen resulted in one goal game with just nine seconds to go. The Orange won the face-off due to a Hobart violation and held on for the win.
The Orange trounces the Scarlet Knights at the Warrior Classic in Charlotte, N.C.
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights (5-8, 1-4 Big East) jumped out to an early 2-1 lead against the Syracuse Orange (6-5, 3-1) on Saturday at the Warrior Classic in Charlotte, N.C., but it didn't hold that lead for long. The Orange went on to score 12 straight goals, taking a 13-3 lead into halftime. The second half featured more domination until the last second ticked off the clock. The final score was 19-6.
Syracuse took down Providence Saturday in the Carrier Dome 10-9.
The No. 17 Syracuse Orange (5-4) picked up a win Saturday against the No. 11 Princeton Tigers (6-3) in front of a home crowd at the Carrier Dome. The Orange scored 4 unanswered goals during a decisive third quarter to win its first game in over two weeks.
"It was a very good win for us," coach John Desko said. "We're gonna enjoy it for the next ten minutes here and then get ready for the (Cornell) Big Red on Tuesday."
The Orange lose consecutive games for the first time since 2007.
It was a rainy Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey for the Konic Minolta Big City Classic as the No. 14 Syracuse Orange (4-4) fell to the No. 8 Duke Blue Devils (9-3). The Orange came out strong in the first quarter, jumping out to a 3-1 lead. Duke took a one-goal lead into halftime and then a three-goal lead in the third quarter. The Orange stormed back to tie the game, but a series of bad turnovers resulted in a Duke victory. This was the first time that Duke has beaten Syracuse since 1978.
Syracuse loses its first ever Big East game to Villanova 11-10.
Syracuse (4-3, 2-1) fell to Villanova (5-3, 1-0) at the Carrier Dome on Sunday night 11-10. It was a slugfest between the two teams. The game was very physical and went back and forth. The Orange led for the majority of the first half but came out of the locker room sluggish and Villanova capitalized.
The Orange's offensive onslaught buried Providence.
After losing to Johns Hopkins, the Orange (4-2) came out strong Thursday against Providence (1-4) in a 10-6 victory. The Friars weren't really expected to put up much of a fight. Their only win this season came against Wagner. So this was just the game the Orange needed to get back on track heading into a matchup with No. 14 Villanova on Sunday.
