Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse Overcomes Slow Start to Cruise to Victory Against Vermont

By Adam Gotkin | @adam_gotkin

Syracuse men’s lacrosse started off today’s game about as slow as possible. Halfway through the first quarter, SU was scoreless, but then the script completely flipped, and the orange dominated the rest of the way. Syracuse sped Vermont 20 to seven today in the perfect start to the 2024 campaign.
“I mean, I told the offense before the game, that it’s our first game and I’m sure we’re gonna come out a little sloppy, and that’s normal thing.” Attackmen Christian Mule said after the game.
“You know, I think their goalie made some incredible stops in that first quarter, you know, and I think we were, we were going 100 miles miles an hour.” Attackmen Joey Spallina said, “You know, and kind of not, you know, taking a deep breath and you know, kind of just playing how he played, which is what we did in the second, we want.”
Head Coach Gary Gait added on saying, “To put the best team on the field. And it’s, you know about chemistry, it’s about people playing positions and taking on roles and I think that’s why you see a mix of you know, new players, old players, and freshmen and”
Vermont Head Coach Chris Feifs said, “Yeah, you know, I think our you showed a little bit in the first half we were kind of giving too many second chance opportunities with a couple failed clears think we had to fill clears in the first half that you know, those second chance opportunities against an offense like that really were young defense down.”
Well, the big storyline entering this game was how would the Cuse fare at the faceoff effects Mason Kohn and Jack Mullen dominated winning over 67% of draws up next Syracuse takes on Colgate on Monday. The Raiders look a lot tougher now than many initially thought beating Penn State who’s ranked fourth in the country earlier today.
