Women's lacrosse: Orange offense finally clicks in win over Virginia Tech

Five different SU players score at least three goals in romp over the Hokies.

The Syracuse football team might have been scrimmaging on Saturday, but the Orange women's lacrosse team was in top form against Virginia Tech.

Five different Orange players scored at least three goals, led by Kayla Treanor's four tallies, as SU romped over the Hokies, 22-8, at the Carrier Dome.

"We executed from the very beginning," SU head coach Gary Gait said. "I thought we played well. The offense was sharp, focused and running at full speed. We really shot well, especially in the first half. That's what we worked on on the offensive all week was execution. They delivered in the first half. The defense played well. I'm happy with the outcome today."

Syracuse (9-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) floored the accelerator early, jumping out to a 6-1 advantage. Midfielder Erica Bodt played one of the best offensive halves of her career, netting a hat trick before the midway point of the period.

The Hokies (6-8, 0-5 Atlantic Coast) scored three-straight goals near the end of the half to stay within distance of a comeback, but the Orange tuurned on the afterburners the rest of the way.

Taylor Gait, Halle Majorana, Devon Collins and Treanor all tallied hat tricks of their own, and SU scored eight of the game's final nine goals to pull away to an insurmountable lead.

Kailah Kempney won nine draws for SU, while opponent Meg Bartley snatched 10.

The 22 goals are the most by Syracuse since a 25-0 win over Stetson on Jan. 24, 2014.

The Orange will look to keep rolling on Tuesday when it takes on Notre Dame at 7 p.m. in the Dome.
