SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Providence College men's lacrosse team fell to BIG EAST foe Syracuse, 10-6, on March 21 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, N.Y. Sophomore Andrew Barton (Timonium, Md.) led the Friar effort with two goals and one assist, while senior Christian Dzwilewski (Huntington, N.Y.) recorded 15 saves.
The Friars were outscored, 6-1, heading into halftime. Sophomore Robert Fleming (Washington, D.C.) scored the lone Providence goal in the half at the 9:09 mark of the first quarter. At the time, Fleming's goal evened the score (1-1), but Syracuse responded with three goals to finish the quarter to take a 4-1 lead. The Orange tacked on two more goals in the second quarter, while holding Providence scoreless.
Providence regrouped at the break and came out of the gates quick in the third quarter. Freshman Niall Cahill (Troy, N.Y.) found the back of the cage just 24 seconds into the action off a feed from Sean Wright (Silver Spring, Md.). The teams drew even on the scoreboard in the quarter, scoring two goals apiece and Syracuse headed to the fourth quarter with an 8-3 advantage on the scoreboard.
The Friars held a 3-2 advantage in scoring in the fourth quarter, but the deficit proved too great for Providence to overcome.
Joining Barton, Fleming and Cahill with goals for the Friars were JT Weber (West Hartford, Conn.) and Buck McClure (Dallas, Texas). Wright finished the night with two assists. Providence's man-up unit was clicking on all cylinders during the game, scoring three of the team's six goals versus the Orange.
Syracuse was led by Tommy Palasek, who recorded two goals and one assist.
Providence returns to action on Saturday, March 24 against former MAAC foe Siena. The game will be played in Loudonville, N.Y. at 2:00 p.m.
