Syracuse Doesn’t Exact Revenge vs. Boston College During 15-13 Loss
In a close game against an elite opponent, when the door opens, you’ve got to walk through it. Boston College provided Syracuse a man-up opportunity in crunch time, and the Orange would turn it over in a 15-13 loss to the Eagles in a rematch of the 2021 National Title game. That wasn’t the only mistake SU made in the loss, but for head coach Kayla Treanor, it’s definitely the one that stood out.
“It’s just a couple plays offensively, we turn the ball over on a man-up, we had another possession where we turned it over,” said Treanor postgame. “And then, we weren’t really going on a run with draw controls. We weren’t able to score and get the ball back. So, when they were on a run, it hurt us that we weren’t able to get a lot of draws.”
“We had two man-up possessions that we didn’t finish on,” said senior Meaghan Tyrrell. “Those were two goals that could’ve been a game-changing thing for us. Kind of dialing in on the little things everyday in practice.”
While Syracuse made its mistakes, Boston College’s superstars did not. Charlotte North scored three goals off six shots, but it was actually a sophomore, Belle Smith, who did the heavy lifting, tallying five goals. One of the few bright spots for SU was the return of Megan Carney from injury, but the senior recorded just two points. She’ll look to get back in the swing of things next Friday in South Bend when The ‘Cuse starts its ACC Tournament run.
