Syracuse jumped out a to a 2-0 lead over Mercyhurst in the Collegiate Hockey Association championship game, but was outscored 5-2 for the remainder of the game as the Orange lost their 14th straight to the Lakers.

The Syracuse women’s hockey team lost a heartbreaker Saturday to No. 4 Mercyhurst in the Collegiate Hockey Association championship game, 5-4.

The Orange started off strong as team captain Stefanie Marty scored a power play goal four minutes into the game. That was followed by another power play goal scored by Margot Scharfe. The Orange carried that two-goal lead into the second period, and that’s when the Lakers’ offense exploded.

Syracuse defeated Niagara 1-0 Friday to advance to the championship game against perennial power Mercyhurst.

The Syracuse women’s ice hockey team did not have to journey very far for this year’s College Hockey America’s playoffs. In fact, they did not have to travel at all.

This year’s CHA Tournament is being held at Tennity Ice Pavilion, the home rink for the Orange. Syracuse looked every bit at home during their semifinal game versus Niagara University Friday night. The Orange overwhelmed Niagara in the first period, scoring the game’s only goal, and defeated the Purple Eagles by a score of 1-0.

Freshman goalie Kallie Billadeau stuffs UNH during her first start in net.

The Syracuse women's goalie looked like a seasoned veteran in net during Friday night’s game against the No. 8 New Hampshire Wildcats. Kallie Billadeau stopped the puck with all parts of her body and in all situations, even as the Orange faced a 5-on-3 power play--and she did it all in her first collegiate start between the pipes.

The freshman goalie anchored the Syracuse defense en route to a 4-2 victory.  Billadeau’s teammates played well in front of her, but they also helped her mentally prepare for the game.

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.

SU student athlete Stefanie Marty shares her experience of competing in two Winter Olympic Games.

Student athletes can be seen almost anywhere on the Syracuse University campus. Student athletes who have also represented their nation at the Olympic games are a rare sight.

Stefanie Marty is both. The junior economics major in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, has played sports her entire life. This commitment led to her inclusion in the Swiss Olympic ice hockey team for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, as well as the 2006 squad for the Torino Winter Olympics.
