Syracuse men”s lacrosse storms back to beat Army

As he ran to the Syracuse sideline, Jamie Trimboli was mobbed by teammates. After high-fives to players and coaches, Trimboli took off his helmet and sprayed water into his hair.

The SU senior midfielder had just scored his fourth goal of the game, and third goal in five minutes, to bring the Orange back from a 5-2 halftime deficit.

Trimboli’s three straight scores early in the second half brought SU back into the game, and his fifth goal gave Syracuse its first lead. After putting up its lowest offensive output of any half this season through the first two quarters, Syracuse clawed back on the shoulders of Trimboli. Second half adjustments allowed the No. 5 Orange (3-0) to open space in the middle of the field and overcome a suffocating Army defense to defeat the No. 9 Black Knights (3-2), 9-7 in the Carrier Dome Sunday afternoon.






Army and Syracuse meet in the Orange’s third game of the season for the sixth year in a row on Sunday. This time, it’s a battle of top-ten opponents as a 3-0 start pushed the Black Knights up to No. 7 before they come to the Dome to take on No. 5 Syracuse. Earlier this week, Army was upset by Marist, 17-9, and consecutive losses could result in the Black Knights’ plummeting down the rankings.

Here’s what to know about Army before Sunday’s game.

Last time they played: The last matchup between Army and Syracuse was almost exactly a year ago. On Feb. 24, 2019, the Orange snuck past the Black Knights, 10-8, behind a balanced offensive attack. Since-graduated attackmen Bradley Voigt and Nate Solomon combined for three goals while Drake Porter made 16 saves — tied for his career-high. Nick Mellen held Army’s leading scorer, Brendan Nichtern, to just one goal while Jakob Phaup won 15 of 18 face-offs.

All-time series: Army leads, 40-26
