The Syracuse-Le Moyne contest consisted of three 15-minute regulation periods and a 10-minute quarter of running time. The scores were reset to zero at the end of each period.

Against Hofstra, the Orange trailed by two early on goals by Stephen Benz and Denver transfer Jamie Lincoln. Hofstra also got solid play from starting goalie Andrew Gvozden in the opening period. He made six saves to help keep the Orange attack at bay.

After just two goals in the first 13 minutes, the two teams combined for three goals in the span of 17 seconds with less than two minutes left in the opening period. Daniello got the Orange on the board with a left-handed rocket off a feed from Desko at the 1:59 mark. Hofstra pushed its margin to 3-1 when Jay Card scored off his own rebound with 1:48 left. But junior Jeremy Thompsonwon the ensuing faceoff and found Desko alone on the crease for an easy transition goal six seconds later to make it 3-2 Hofstra at the end of the first.

After trading goals in the second quarter, the Orange offense found its stride in the third and won the period, 3-1, to claim a 6-5 overall advantage. The Orange notched the last two goals of the stanza with senior longstick middie Tyler Hlawati scoring off a pass from Desko with 2:06 to go. Thompson followed with a nifty dodge down the alley to close the quarter’s scoring and give Syracuse a one-goal edge heading into the final period.

The Orange and Pride tied the fourth quarter, 1-1. Freshman JoJo Marasco had Syracuse’s only goal of the period, an unassisted score with 2:18 to play, which was the eventual game-winner.

Against Le Moyne, Syracuse jumped out to an early 4-0 lead and dominated the first quarter, 5-1. Daniello assisted on SU’s first three goals, two of which were scored by Jamieson.

The Orange continued to pour it on in the second quarter, scoring the first three goals of the period, including two within 18 seconds as Daniello and Thompson each registered unassisted tallies. An Amidon score off a pass from Jamieson put Syracuse in front, 8-1, overall and the Orange won the second period, 5-2, to claim a 10-3 overall lead heading into the third.

Syracuse extended its overall advantage to 13-4, scoring three of the third quarter’s first four goals. However, Le Moyne won the period, 5-4. The Dolphins reeled off four straight to pull within five at 13-8, but a goal by freshman Christian Pagli extended the Orange lead to 14-8 after three quarters.

Ianzito notched the only goal of the fourth period to produce the 15-8 final score.

Does anyone know what happened to Max Bartig of Northport? He was a top recruit and a 2 time empire guy on Long Island and now as a senior he isn't seeing any time?
