SU field hockey drops its first game of the season

After a 12-game win streak to start the season, the Orange watched their dreams of an undefeated fall by the wayside with a 2-1 loss to UMass.

The nation's No. 1-ranked Syracuse Orange field hockey team's undefeated streak has come an end.

In Thursday afternoon's match-up at UMass Amherst, the Orange (12-1) found the short end of the stick for the first time since last fall. Their 2-1 loss to the Minutewomen was only the second time the Orange scored less than two goals, the first being against the No. 2 North Carolina Tar Heels in the third game of the season.

The Orange knew they had a tough week, with their two games occurring during the week, as opposed to the usual weekend games. The match-up against No. 13 Stanford was expected to be a challenge, and the Minutewomen began the year as a ranked team, proving their skill was nothing to be taken lightly.
