Junior Tim Desko scored a career-high five goals, including three in the second half, to lead the Orange (3-0) to its first regular-season victory over the Cavaliers (4-1) since 2004. But Syracuse can thank senior goalie John Galloway and its defense for shutting down a potent Cavaliers offense that came into the game scoring 16.8 goals per contest.
Senior Steven Keough and sophomore JoJo Marasco — the backbone of the Orange offense — notched two goals and two assists each. More importantly, Syracuse received support from its secondary contributors. Redshirt junior Tim Desko and senior midfielders Jovan Miller and Josh Amidon scored two goals apiece.
