No. 18 Syracuse employed a stringent defense and explosive first-half offense to defeat Army, 6-2.

Call it a goalkeeper’s duel, defensive effort or grind-it-out performance. The Syracuse men’s lacrosse team only cares about one thing — a win.

No. 18 Syracuse bounced back from a disastrous double-overtime loss to Albany on Feb. 17 with a 6-2 defensive-minded win against Army on Sunday at the Carrier Dome.

The game, in which both teams combine for 66 shots and 37 shots on goal, saw a completely different defensive effort from goalkeeper Bobby Wardwell and the Syracuse backline.
