SU Women Lacrosse Team Earns Sixth Victory

The Syracuse University Women's Lacrosse team won their sixth game of the season with a come from behind win over the Louisville Cardinals today in the Carrier Dome. The team earned their fourth win in the Big East, making them 4-1 in conference, tied with Loyola for second place.

The Orange trailed for the majority of the second half but with right around six minutes left in the game, down three, the ladies started their trek back to victory. It started with a goal from Senior Tee Ladouceur to bring the score to 10-8. On the next Orange possession, Sarah Holden scored one of her four goals on the evening to bring Syracuse within one. Immediately after, Holden scored another goal to tie the game as part of a career-high six points for the Junior.

With just 49 seconds left in the game, Ladouceur struck again with the game winning goal, giving the Orange team their third consecutive conference win inside the Dome.

"We did what we needed to do at the end of the game and that was to give ourselves an opportunity to tie the game up and give us the chance to score and win the game," said head coach Gary Gait after the game.

The Orange hope to capitalize on this momentum as they face Cincinnati at home this Saturday inside the Carrier Dome.
