Sophomore goalie Dominic Lamolinara makes game-winning save with two seconds remaining in a Feb. 26 lacrosse matchup against the Army Black Knights, sealing the second victory of the season for the Orange.

Syracuse head coach John Desko wasn’t happy with his team’s performance in the postgame press conference Sunday at the Carrier Dome -- despite the fact that the men's lacrosse team had just won its second game of the year with a 10-9 score. The No. 6 Orange (2-0) was very sloppy against Army Black Knights (2-2). The 25 turnovers the team committed bugged him the most, he said.

All eyes will be on the No. 1 ranked SU men's lacrosse team as the Orange aim for a third national championship in four years.

February cannot come fast enough for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team. That’s when the Orange kick off the 2011 season, and can officially put last year’s abrupt and unexpected finish behind them.

Coming off of back-to-back national titles in 2008 and 2009, the highly ranked Orange were primed to make it three in row. However, the Black Knights of Army had other plans, stunning Syracuse in double-overtime of the first round of the NCAA tournament.

SU fired 55 shots, improving to 2-0 on the season in a 12-7 victory over Army.

The No. 1 ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse team finally figured out Army’s goalie in the second half of Sunday’s game to beat the Black Knights 12-7.

Allowing just 16 goals in their first two games, Army focused on shutting down Syracuse’s offensive stars Cody Jamieson and Stephen Keogh.

For three quarters, the Black Knights (1-3) did just that. Relying heavily on junior goaltender Tom Palesky, who made 21 saves on the afternoon, Army’s defense kept it close -- especially in the first quarter when the Black Knights barely controlled the ball.
