Kayla Treanor's four goals leads an explosive Orange attack.

Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said it's unusual to play the same non-conference opponent in back-to-back games, but his team handled that anomaly pretty well on Sunday.

Junior attack Kayla Treanor led SU with four goals, and both Kailah Kempney and Riley Donahue recorded hat tricks in a 19-7 rout over Canisius. The Orange defeated the Golden Griffins, 21-13, on Feb. 7.

The Orange's star attack nets seven goals, while the Maryland transfer makes a statement in her first game with the program.

It's a new and a new team, according to No. 3 Syracuse's Kayla Treanor.

The third-best scorer in team history, Alyssa Murray, is now an assistant coach at Michigan. Also gone from last year's national runner-up are Katie Webster (now a volunteer assistant at SU), midfielder Amy Cross, goalkeeper Alyssa Costantino and defenders Natalie Glanell, Kasey Mock and Liz Harbeson. 

But on Saturday, the Orange proved it's still one of the favorites to win the national title.

The Orange took both games from the Duel in the Dome over the weekend

No. 8 Syracuse beats No. 7 Maryland in friendly scrimmage

The Syracuse men’s lacrosse team mounted a comeback in the final minute of the fourth quarter Sunday to beat No. 7 Maryland 11-9 in the first scrimmage of the afternoon. The Orange then fell to Canisius 11-10 after a Golden Griffin goal with one second left on the clock.

The last time Syracuse played against Maryland was during the quarterfinals of last year's NCAA tournament. The Orange lost in overtime in that game.

SU got off to another slow start, but was able to turn it around with a strong second half to top Canisius 86-67.

There was a sense of déjà vu for the SU men’s basketball team Sunday afternoon in its home matchup with Canisius. Much like SU's opening night victory versus Northern Iowa, getting out of the starting blocks strong proved to be an issue once more in the Orange's 86-67 victory over the Golden Griffins.

Syracuse used a big second half to run away from upset-minded Northern Iowa in its season opener Friday night.

There were no glass slippers or carriage rides home Friday night for the University of Northern Iowa. The Panthers, one of last season’s Cinderella stories, ran out of magic against Syracuse as they fell to the Orange, 68-46.

Syracuse shrugged off a slow start and exploded for 45 points in the second half to pull away from the pesky Panthers. The Orange were led by Kris Joseph and Rick Jackson who each chipped in 14 points. Freshman Dion Waiters also scored in double figures for Syracuse as he chipped in 10 ­– seven of which came in the first half.
