Syracuse Men’s Soccer Earns NCAA Tournament Bid

It’s official. The Orange are dancing for the ninth time in program history, an eighth time under head coach Ian McIntyre. Syracuse men’s soccer has earned a bid to the NCAA tournament.

“Just really excited to be playing at this time of year.” Coach McIntyre said, “You’re set up for the beginning. Going into the season and here at Syracuse can you still be playing in November and can you still be playing in the national tournament? So to see our name pop up on the screen is very special.”

“It’s not easy. Every year you start from zero.” Team captain Lorenzo Boselli said, “Everybody starts from the same place. So we’re proud of what we’ve done so far. And now it’s you know, we’re not in the same exact position as last year, but I believe the number of seed matters up to a certain point. That’s not all it is.”

“Yeah. I mean, it’s always special.” Defensive captain Buster Sjoberg added, “Like I was a different school for two years and I didn’t play in a tournament once and now I feel kind of granted that we’re going to be in the tournament, but it is a very special thing.”

Syracuse takes on Boston University in the first round of the tournament. The Terriers had a historic season this year, going 12-3-4 and winning the Patriot League tournament for the first time in program history. The match will be on Thursday and kick off right behind me at the SU soccer stadium at 6 p.m.
