But against St. John's, the Orange was forced to "storm" back for its victory.

SU ripped off a 7-0 run in the fourth quarter to pull away to a 14-6 win over the Red Storm in Kennesaw, Georgia, on Saturday. Randy Staats scored a team-high five goals, as the Orange erased an early 4-0 deficit to continue its unbeaten streak.

Ben Williams dominated one of the best faceoff specialists in the country as the Orange offense rolled past the Saints.

Led by the performance of Ben Williams, the Orange (1-0) won 25 out of 30 faceoffs en route to a 21-7 victory over Siena (0-1) in the Carrier Dome. Williams finished 17 for 20 for an 85-percent clip at the X.

The fifth-year event pitted the 2015 squad against a number of well-known SU alumni.

Syracuse men’s lacrosse fans escaped the rain and headed inside the Carrier Dome on Saturday afternoon at the program’s fifth annual Alumni Lacrosse Classic.

The varsity team played a very competitive game against its All-Star alumni, with the current Orange squad pulling away to a 13-7 victory. The alumni team included a trio of four-time All-Americans, a Major League Lacrosse Goalie of the Year, a Team USA midfielder and a pair of 2014 MLL All-Stars.

A furious rally in the closing seconds fell short as the Bulldogs dealt the Orange a 10-9 upset loss in the second round.

After junior Kevin Rice scored a goal to cut the Syracuse deficit to one with only eight seconds remaining, the Orange’s postseason life hinged on a faceoff—something that hindered Syracuse throughout much of the season.

Somehow, though, senior Chris Daddio won it easily and zipped a pass to Dylan Donahue, who was streaking down the right sideline. After a couple of jukes, he was within 10 yards of the cage and took one final shot.

Clang.

Henry Schoonmaker scored the winning goal 28 seconds into overtime to keep the Orange undefeated.

Almost a year ago to the day, the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team lost a heartbreaking home opener to the Albany Great Danes in double overtime. But this season, No. 1 Syracuse (2-0) would avenge that loss in about the same way No. 10 Albany (0-1) won last year.
