Syracuse women’s lacrosse rolls past Louisville, 19-5 (full coverage)

Meaghan Tyrrell stepped up to the right of Rachel Florek’s goal and readied herself for a free position shot. As the whistle blew, the junior All-American lunged forward. She faked a shot toward the near post, cut across her defender to create space and sidearmed a shot into the top left corner. The goal, her sixth of the afternoon, broke her career-high.

Five minutes later, Jenny Markey ran toward the goal and delivered a deft pass over the top to Tyrrell, who took a few steps in and stopped on a dime, causing two defenders to collide. Tyrrell took one step to the left and fired her shot into the side of the net for her seventh goal of the day.

No. 3 Syracuse (10-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast) steamrolled No. 15 Lousiville (5-8, 1-7) 19-5 behind seven goals apiece from Carney and Tyrrell — both career-highs. The pair added three assists each, and their combined 20 points were 12 more than Louisville’s entire team and 11 more than the rest of SU’s. Syracuse’s 19 goals were a new season-high, too. For the second time in two games, the Orange’s defense held an opponent scoreless for an entire half.
