Syracuse Can’t Execute Down The Stretch, Falls to Army 17-13

By Nick Luttrell | @nickluttie

Syracuse has lost its third straight game in a row as tonight they fell 17-13 to Army. Despite being down 5-1, the Orange were able to mount a comeback to tie the game in the fourth quarter. But after that, it was all the Black Knights as they scored five unanswered to win the game. SU Head Coach Gary Gait says it was the little things the Orange couldn’t do right.

“There were simple things like a clear, it’s an easy catch we miss it goes right to the other stick, easy goal for them,” Gait said. “Those types of things just can’t happen in the fourth. We gotta find a way as coaches to help our players so those types of things don’t happen.”

“Ya I basically just brought the team up about five or ten minutes ago and just told everyone to stick together,” Brendan Curry said. “The only thing we can do right now and today and tonight is just stay together and look to the guy to your right and left, those are our brothers, that’s not gonna change win or lose.”

“I think it’s important for this team especially to keep building culturally and in the lower room and then that’ll end up translating on the field,” Curry said.

With tonight’s loss the Orange now fall to 1-3, their worst start since 2006. Next up for Syracuse: back here inside the dome on Sunday against Hobart in the battle for the Kraus-Simmons Trophy.
