Now, the trio recovered well and put in a stellar performance the rest of the way, but with Mellen unlikely to return this week, that means Desko will roll out Cunningham, Firman and Bomberry again, this time against better competition.
Syracuse attackman Kevin Rice had this to say about his opener. Both individually and as an offense to get going on the right foot. I think it was a total team offensive performance. We had 12 different goal scorers so I think we were doing a good job.
There would be no early exit this year for the Orange. One year after a shocking 9-8 double overtime loss to Army in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Syracuse had no problems in this year’s first round, defeating Siena 10-4.
