The longest game in program history ends in heartbreak.

Syracuse fired 45 shots toward RIT goaltender Ali Binnington during Saturday's CHA title game, more than enough to create a few golden scoring chances.

But it could only convert once and let a golden playoff opportunity slip away.

The Orange took an early lead on a redirection goal by Emily Costales, but couldn't light the lamp in overtime as RIT fought back for a 2-1 victory and an automatic berth in the NCAA championship tournament.

SU jumped out to a 4-0 lead against Lindenwood, but couldn't hold it through the final two periods.

42. To "The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" fans, it’s the answer to life. To professional sports fans, it’s the number Jackie Robinson used to break the Major League Baseball color barrier.


To Syracuse University junior forward Melissa Piacentini, it’s the record number of career goals she has scored while suiting up for the Orange women’s ice hockey team.

Syracuse scored four goals and held Boston College to one goal in a big ACC upset.

Senior goaltender Kallie Billadeau called it the biggest win in team history.

While that may or may not be true, there’s no doubt Syracuse (3-4) certainly made a statement against a national powerhouse Friday night.

Sparked by 43 saves from Billadeau and goals from four different skaters, the Orange surged past No. 3 Boston College (5-2), 4-1, in front of 258 fans at Tennity Ice Pavilion.
