UAlbany Men’s Lacrosse Stuns Syracuse at a Rainy Casey Stadium
It was pouring rain in Albany and the Great Danes were pouring in goals as they hung on to upset Syracsue 14 to 12. Excitement was through the rough for fans, coaches and players. One of those players, Will Ramos, making his first appearance for the Great Danes, tried to put into perspective how big this win was tonight.
“We’ve been going to Syracuse, traveling on the bus to them, every single year,” Senior UAlbany Goalkeeper Will Ramos said. “So they wanna come to our stadium? We’re gonna do what we gotta do to get that win. That win meant so much to us.”
“I am honestly at a loss of words right now,” Junior UAlbany Midfielder Grayson Hogg said. “I’m just so proud of the guys and like… terrible weather, you come up with all the excuses you want but at the end of the day we came out with the win and its unbelievable feeling. Unbelievable feeling”
Now on the other side of the field was Syracuse and obviously for the Orange it was a disappointing loss. SU Head Coach Gary Gait kept it short when trying to describe what went wrong for his team today.
“Oh oh ya it was easy, we didn’t finish,” Gait said. “Ya know you try to help players and you practice shooting you do all that and players get open, you take the shots and they either go in or they don’t.”
So a monumental win for one team and a disappointing loss for another. For the Orange they’ll have to rebound pretty quickly as they’ll go up against Cornell Monday night.
