The Syracuse women’s lacrosse team fended off a late Notre Dame surge for the 18-14 win on Thursday in the Carrier Dome.
The Orange move to 4-0 this season despite allowing the most goals by an opponent all year.
In No. 2 Syracuse’s (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) win over No. 4 Notre Dame (2-1, 1-1), Sierra Cockerille led all scorers with five goals. The Orange notched their third win over a top-5 opponent, as part of the program’s first game in the doubleheader — the two teams will meet again Sunday, with fans. Thursday night, it was Syracuse’s offense that set the pace. The Orange fired 30 shots, 23 of which were on goal, and tied a season-high 18 goals against the Fighting Irish. Despite a second-half run by Notre Dame that featured five unanswered goals, Syracuse hung on to remain undefeated on the year.
