WASHINGTON, D. C. (SYRACUSE SPORTSMAN) – – Juniors Meaghan Tyrell and Megan Carney together scored seven goals and led Syracuse to a 15-10 win over Georgetown on Tuesday. The Orange scored the first 10 goals and led by 12 goals in the second half before the Hoyas made a late thrust.
"The first half was a great response to a heavy loss in North Carolina," said Syracuse head coach Gary Gait. "We are satisfied with the 'W' and will move forward to prepare for Virginia."
Syracuse (7-1) took control early and started the game with a 10-0 run. Tyrrell equalized 26 seconds after the start of the game after a support from Carney to get the offensive going. Tyrrell had two goals and two assists during the run while Carney scored one goal and dealt two assists. Freshman Jenny Markey scored her first career goal at 8:24 pm and her second of the day at 4:55 pm gave Orange a 10-0 advantage.
The teams traded goals before Emma Tyrrell and Carney scored two goals in their sophomore year to put Syracuse 13-2 ahead at break. The 13 goals and the half-time advantage of 11 goals are season highs.
Goals from Carney and Meaghan Tyrell gave Syracuse the day's biggest lead 15-3 at 15-3. Georgetown (3-6) attempted a comeback with seven goals in a row but the game was out of reach.
