Everybody knows about home field advantage and the boost that a ravenous fan base can give their team. In some places, however, that home field advantage turns from a minor factor in a team's winning equation to something that's downright terrifying for a visiting team.

Isabel Menard is making quite the impression while playing for the Syracuse Women's Ice Hockey team, but with that she's also making noise on the international stage as well.

During the last drill of a vigorous 90-minute practice, a streak of golden light zips down the ice, blows past a defender and flicks the puck past the goalie and into the back of the net.

The golden skater, Isabel Menard, repeats the process three times, leaving three different defenders frustrated in her wake.

During the second run, the puck barely trickled over the goal line before the goalie swiped it away. The net-minder argued she made the save, but Menard bounced over to the coach and gave her energetic appeal.

The SU women's ice hockey team was overwhelmed by Clarkson, losing 3-2 at Tennity Ice Pavilion.

The band played fight songs and drummed marching beats while fans cheered for their team at Friday night’s Syracuse women’s ice hockey game. The fans, which filled half the bleachers at Tennity Ice Complex on Syracuse’s South Campus, sang fight songs and chanted cheers that helped lead their team to victory.

The oddity in this is that members of the band and accompanying fans were wearing green and yellow. They weren’t cheering for the Orange. They traveled from Clarkson University to support their players on the ice.

Stefanie Marty and her sister Julia face off as the SU women's hockey team tied Northeastern in its home opener.

In the stands of the Tennity Ice Pavilion stood the Marty family wearing orange and blue, holding a stuffed gray wolf. The entire game, the family cheered in thick Swiss accents.

Normally, a family rooting for both teams at an ice hockey game would be an unusual sighting. Except for the fact that the Syracuse women’s ice hockey team was playing the Northeastern Huskies.

The family had good reason to cheer for both teams. Stefanie Marty plays for Syracuse and her twin sister, Julia, plays for Northeastern.
