WHAT IT MEANS: The biggest story line from the night came from between the pipes. Dominic Lamolinara was named the starting goalie for the first time this season, and delivered with 11 saves in 48 minutes. It was his second straight win, as he came into relieve Bobby Wardwell during SU’s big win over Johns Hopkins over the weekend. Wardwell and Ben Romagnoli also saw minutes in net.

STAR GAZING: While redshirt sophomore Henry Schoonmaker notched his first career hat trick with three goals, the Orange once again proved how balanced of a team they are. Eleven different players scored, as SU shot 48 percent for the game, and was also 3 for 5 in extra man opportunities. For Providence, Barton finished with 2 goals and an assist.

WHAT’S NEXT: Syracuse will travel to Pennsylvania to play Villanova on Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m.
