Syracuse men’s soccer advances to Elite Eight with shutout win over Cornell

For the first time since 2015, the Syracuse Orange men’s soccer team is headed to the Elite Eight.

The three-seeded Orange (16-2-4) blanked the 14-seeded Cornell Big Red (14-4-1), 1-0, on Sunday afternoon in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.


The game was scoreless until the 82nd minute when Giona Leibold blasted one past Cornell’s goalkeeper Ryan Friedberg on a pass from Russell Shealy, pushing Syracuse past the Big Red.

Syracuse will host Vermont (16-3-2) in the Quarterfinal next weekend. The date and time are to be determined.
