- SU Men's Soccer Team Advances to Sweet 16
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- For the second time in two seasons, the Syracuse University men's soccer team is off to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
SU rallied for two late goals in its tourney opener against Penn State, eliminating the Nittany Lions 2-1. Emil Ekblom and Oyvind Alseth both scored for the Orange, which found itself in a 1-0 hole with 17 minutes left to play, after surrendering a penalty.
The 9th-seeded Orange advances to the Sweet 16, where it will face 8th-seeded Georgetown on Sunday, November 30th in Washington, D.C.. The Hoyas eliminated SU in the round of 16 in 2012 -- Syracuse's last appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
It's a trip that nearly wasn't for Syracuse.
In the 60th minute, Orange goalkeeper Alex Bono -- a graduate of Baldwinsville's C.W. Baker High School -- was attempting to clear out the ball, but tried to slow his arm mid-throw. The result was a terribly errant pass, which ended up on the foot of PSU's Connor Maloney. 'Cuse defender Tyler Hilliard then took Maloney down just inside the box, drawing a yellow card.
Maloney -- the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year -- converted the ensuing penalty kick, giving Penn State a 1-0 lead.
SU responded in the 74th minute, as midfielder Oyvind Alseth sent a tremendous through pass to substitute Emil Ekblom in transition, who beat Nittany Lions goalie Andrew Wolverton on the far post for the equalizer.
Ten minutes later, the cardiac 'Cuse struck again.
Orange defender Jordan Murrell took a free kick from midfield and played it out wide to Alseth, who collected the pass inside the box. Alseth then played a low, curling cross to the near post, which Wolverton bounced on -- but not before the ball passed over the goal line, giving Syracuse its first lead of the match.
SU finished the match with 19 total shots -- 10 on goal. Wolverton posted 8 saves on the day, while Bono didn't face any shots besides the PK.
- SU Field Hockey Team Loses in Nat'l Championship
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- The Syracuse University field hockey team came up just short of making school history, as the 4th-ranked Orange lost to #3 Connecticut in the NCAA national championship game 1-0. SU was seeking its first-ever national title in any women's sport.
The Orange -- which advanced to the final for the first time in program history -- finish the season 18-6 overall. Eight of SU's eleven starters in the title tilt will return for the 2015 season.
With their victory over Syracuse, UConn captured its second-straight NCAA D-I field hockey championship.
- Pitt Hands Syracuse 4th Straight Loss 30-7
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- The Orange football team lost its fourth game in a row, falling 30-7 to rival Pittsburgh.
Despite the return of true freshman quarterback A.J. Long -- who was forced to miss the Duke contest with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder -- SU just couldn't muster any kind of offensive rhythm against the Panthers. Senior running back Prince-Tyson Gulley lost a fumble on Syracuse's second offensive series, leading to a one-yard touchdown by Pitt star tailback James Conner.
Conner's score -- his 22nd rushing TD of the year -- set a new ACC record for rushing touchdowns in a season. The sophomore back also tied the University of Pittsburgh single-season record for rushing touchdowns, held by former Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett.
On Syracuse's next offensive drive, Long led the Orange deep into Panthers territory before throwing an interception to Lafayette Pitts in the endzone.
In the second quarter, redshirt freshman Mitch Kimble took over at QB for the Orange. After Kimble lead SU into the red zone, freshman kicker Cole Murphy missed a 34-yard field goal attempt.
The Panthers responded with another score, as Dontez Ford -- a former walk-on receiver at Syracuse -- hauled in an 11-yard TD pass from QB Chad Voytik, making it 17-0 Pittsburgh.
On the ensuing drive, Kimble's pass attempt was bobbled and picked off by Bam Bradley, who returned it down to the Orange 11-yard-line.
Three plays later, SU took back momentum, as true freshman Antwan Cordy made a diving interception in the endzone. Syracuse trailed 17-0 at halftime.
The Orange kept things rolling on the opening drive of the third. Facing 3rd-and-9, Long found fellow freshman Steve Ishmael for a diving, 11-yard first down grab along the sideline. On the very next play, the freshman duo connected on a 46-yard completion. Ishmael beat Pitts up the middle of the field to bring down Long's play-action pass.
SU capped the drive with a one-yard TD plunge by Ron Thompson. The defensive end lined up in the backfield, and was just able to break the plane of the goal line for the score, pulling Syracuse to within ten, 17-7.
It would be the last glimmer of offensive success for the Orange, which finished the game with just 255 yards of total offense.
The Panthers would add two more field goals, and a 49-yard touchdown from star receiver Tyler Boyd. The sophomore wide out finished his day with 7 catches for 126 yards.
Syracuse (3-8, 1-6 ACC) will close out the regular season on Saturday, November 29th at Boston College. Kick-off is set for 12:30pm at Chestnut Hill.
- SU hangs on to beat Iowa 66-63
New York (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris McCullough had 20 points and a critical steal in the final seconds that enabled No. 23 Syracuse to hold on for a 66-63 victory over Iowa in the 2K Classic third-place game.
The Hawkeyes cut a 15-point second-half deficit down to one and had a chance to take the lead, but McCullough stepped in front of Aaron White to intercept Adam Woodbury's pass into the lane and was fouled with 8.4 seconds remaining. The talented freshman then buried two free throws to help keep Iowa at bay.
Rakeem Christmas added 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting as Syracuse (3-1) bounced back from a surprising 73-59 loss to California in Thursday's semifinals. Trevor Cooney contributed 14 points to the win.
Jared Uthoff led the Hawkeyes' near-comeback by netting 15 of his 20 points in the second half. White finished with 13 points and nine rebounds, while Woodbury tallied 12 points for Iowa (2-2).
