Orange ice hockey downs RIT 3-2 in overtime
SU ice hockey beat RIT, 3-2 in OT
The Orange have won two of their last three games after splitting a home-and-home series with Lindenwood in October.
Syracuse blasted RIT goaltender Sarah Coe with 55 shots on Friday, the team’s highest output since it registered 63 shots against Lindenwood in Feb. 2020. Jessica DiGirolamo extended her goal streak to three games and led the SU offense with 10 shots.
DiGirolamo pushed the Orange ahead early in the second with her goal, but RIT responded with under a minute to play in the period and knotted the score again.
The Orange limited the Tigers to just 11 shots on goal. Arielle DeSmet stopped nine pucks for her third win of the fall.
Syracuse will look to string back-to-back wins together for the first time this season. They’ll play the Tigers again, this time in Rochester on Saturday at 6 p.m.
