Senior midfielder Jeff Gilbert's parents have missed only one SU home lacrosse game in the past four years.

Mary Ellen and Michael Gilbert have only missed one Syracuse University lacrosse match in the past four years.

But more than just being fans of the popular sport, the Gilberts are there to watch their son Jeff, a senior midfielder for the Orange.

“My parents have been at every game since my freshman year, except for one which they missed because they went to my brother’s college graduation,” Jeff said. “That’s an acceptable excuse.”

The No. 1 ranked Orange split a pair of exhibition games Saturday, losing to Hofstra 6-5 and beating Le Moyne 10-5.

The last time Syracuse played in the Carrier Dome, Army used physicality and double overtime to pull a stunning upset. After an all-to-long offseason, the Orange players were ready and eager to begin avenging the loss.

“It was nice to be back in here and wash away the bad memories,” SU goalie John Galloway said. “It’s out of the memory bank. Now it’s time to focus on 2011.”
