For the last 46 games, the No. 2 Syracuse (16-4) field hockey team hadn’t lost a game at J.S. Coyne Stadium. But things changed when No. 20 Michigan State (14-9) came to town for the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Spartans ended the Orange’s home win streak in a 2-1 loss for Syracuse Saturday afternoon.

The Orange outshot MSU 21-4, but the Spartans connected on two of its three shots on net, while goalie Molly Cassidy recorded 10 saves.

The Orange is the number one seed in its region and plays either Miami (Ohio) or No. 23 Michigan State at home, where SU field hockey is undefeated this season.

Despite its early semifinal loss in the ACC tournament, SU field hockey remains the number two team in the nation, and heads its region in the 2013 NCAA tournament. Holding the top four spots in the NCAA rankings, ACC members Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia and Duke lead all four of the regions in the NCAA tournament. Each of the four, besides Duke, wait for a play-in game to determine its matchups. Syracuse awaits the result of Mid-American Conference (MAC) champion Miami (Ohio) – Big Ten champion Michigan State Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. The game will be played in East Lansing, Mich.
