The Orange overcomes sluggish offensive start to romp over rival Hobart.

Led by an offensive explosion in the second period, Syracuse cruised to victory over Hobart on senior night Tuesday evening at the Carrier Dome. 

After managing to score only one goal over the first nine minutes of the contest, the No. 4 Orange (9-2, 2-2 ACC) kept the goals coming against the Statesmen (7-4, 4-0 NEC) en route to an 18-5 win. 

A three-goal spurt at the end of the first quarter carried through the rest of the half. By the break, the score was 12-0 Orange and Hobart’s realistic chances of winning had vanished.

The duo of Mupo and Lasota carries Wildcats to non-conference victory.

No. 5 Syracuse worked ever so hard to overcome an early three-goal deficit against Northwestern on Sunday.

But it ultimately came up one play short.

Former Tewaaraton Trophy finalist Kayla Treanor was shout out for the fourth time this season, and the Orange offense failed to capitalize on a number of late opportunities in an 11-10 loss to the seventh-ranked Wildcats.

The longest game in program history ends in heartbreak.

Syracuse fired 45 shots toward RIT goaltender Ali Binnington during Saturday's CHA title game, more than enough to create a few golden scoring chances.

But it could only convert once and let a golden playoff opportunity slip away.

The Orange took an early lead on a redirection goal by Emily Costales, but couldn't light the lamp in overtime as RIT fought back for a 2-1 victory and an automatic berth in the NCAA championship tournament.

Double-doubles by Christmas and Roberson not enough as Wolfpack pulls away in the second half.

Just one day after the NCAA levied significant sanctions against the Syracuse men's basketball program, the regular season came to a bitter end Saturday afternoon.

A late 7-0 run helps SU cruise to its fifth-straight victory.

On Sunday against Virginia, Syracuse took a commanding lead early in the first half and never looked back.

But against St. John's, the Orange was forced to "storm" back for its victory.

SU ripped off a 7-0 run in the fourth quarter to pull away to a 14-6 win over the Red Storm in Kennesaw, Georgia, on Saturday. Randy Staats scored a team-high five goals, as the Orange erased an early 4-0 deficit to continue its unbeaten streak.

Syracuse's first shorthanded goal of the season couldn't have come at a more opportune time.

Allie LaCombe's tally in the first period stood as the game-winner, and goaltender Jenn Gilligan made 11 saves as the No. 2-seeded Orange knocked off No. 4 Penn State 2-0 in the CHA semifinals Friday evening.

With a win over RIT on Saturday, Syracuse will receive a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history.

Rakeem Christmas struggled in his final home game at SU against the top-ranked Cavalier defense.

Syracuse started strong defensively in Monday’s matchup with No. 2 Virginia, but it was the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season-champion Cavaliers that eventually dominated both ends en route to a 59-47 victory on Syracuse’s senior night at the Carrier Dome.

With the win, the Cavaliers clinched their second-straight ACC regular-season title, becoming the first program other than Duke or North Carolina to do so since North Carolina State in 1974.
