Syracuse struggled against Notre Dame

Notre Dame handed Syracuse a 17-7 loss on Saturday, marking the first time the Orange has lost three straight games since the 2007 season.

The Irish blitzed the Orange early, scoring four goals in the first eight minutes, and took a 9-4 lead into half.

The Orange started the second half with a pair of goals from Jordan Evans to cut the deficit to 9-6, but it was all Irish the rest of the way.

Notre Dame scored eight of the next nine goals, with Matt Kavanagh assisting on six of them.

Kavanagh haunted SU all day, finishing with three goals and six assists. He was joined by Ryder Garnsey (five goals) and Mikey Wynne (four).

Evans was one of the few bright spots for the Orange, finishing with a hat trick.

It was a sloppy day for the Orange, which struggled on clears (15-23) and turnovers (15). SU also lost 12 of 27 faceoffs.

Syracuse will also need to evaluate its goaltending after this game. Goalie Warren Hill logged just four saves while allowing 14 goals.

Syracuse will next play at Hobart on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and it will be televised on Time Warner Cable Sports.
