Syracuse kicked off a rainy matchup vs Cornell on Sunday afternoon. While the wet ground made the play sloppier, the Orange were immune to that as they shut out the Big Red 3-0.
Chelsea Domond was once again the best player on the field. The forward recorded a goal and an assist. Coach Nicky Adams praised what Domond brings to the team.
“She is so dangerous and she’s so versatile. She can play with her back to goal and you can play her in behind and she’s so crafty and technical. She’s just a weapon. We were disappointed that we didn’t have her last year so the fact that we get her an extra year is the icing on the cake,” said Adams.
Domond’s performance was part of a bigger picture. Syracuse is having their best program start since their inaugural season in 1996. They are now 7-1 and Adams says that is huge going into conference play.
“We always talked about this year being our most healthy year and having the most players on our roster. If we can get our players confident in non-conference, that was our whole goal. Keep them healthy and get them confident. I feel like we’ve achieved both of those goals going into conference play,” said Adams.
SU has momentum on their six-game winning streak, and they are going to need it. Syracuse hosts the number two ranked Duke Blue Devils on Friday at 7 p.m.
