Dordevic’s Six Goals Propels SU to 14-9 Win Over Stony Brook
After being tied at halftime, Syracuse came out in the third quarter and outscored Stony Brook 5-1 to get the 14-9 win over the Seawolves. A large part for Syracuse’s success was junior Tucker Dordevic who scored five of his six goals in the second half. Opposing head coach, Anthony Gilardi gave praise to the preseason All-American.
“I mean Tucker is two handed, super athletic, he can shoot it. When he’s out there it’s tough we tried to slide to him as quick as could and he’s really good at getting shots off,” Gilardi said.
“He’s definitely one of the best players in the country. We knew that going in we were hoping that he wouldn’t shoot six for 11 is what I think he ended up being. He’s a heck of a player,” Gilardi said.
“Ya know it was a really really fun game. I thought I played really well on offense. I think our, as I was saying, our offense played really, I kinda just had to be at the end of a lot of it,” Dordevic said. “I can’t say it was all me, it was the majority of my teammates and I just happened to be the beneficiary of a bunch of good passes.”
Another bright spot for the Orange was goalkeeper Bobby Gavin who started today, it was his first start in over two weeks, he had 13 saves on 22 shots on goal. Next up for the Orange, they’ll be back at home against #12 Duke. That game is set for Saturday, face off is at noon.
