SU fired 55 shots, improving to 2-0 on the season in a 12-7 victory over Army.

The No. 1 ranked Syracuse men’s lacrosse team finally figured out Army’s goalie in the second half of Sunday’s game to beat the Black Knights 12-7.

Allowing just 16 goals in their first two games, Army focused on shutting down Syracuse’s offensive stars Cody Jamieson and Stephen Keogh.

For three quarters, the Black Knights (1-3) did just that. Relying heavily on junior goaltender Tom Palesky, who made 21 saves on the afternoon, Army’s defense kept it close -- especially in the first quarter when the Black Knights barely controlled the ball.

The Orange begin their hunt for a third national championship in a row with two exhibition games against LeMoyne College and Hofstra University Sunday at the Dome.

Despite losing senior leaders Kenny Nims, Dan Hardy, and Matt Abbott, the Orange begin the 2010 season with very high expectations. Syracuse is the pre-season No. 1 ranked team in the nation and the consensus pick to win this year’s NCAA tournament. The Orange edged out Duke to claim the top spot in both the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) preseason coaches poll and the NIKE/Inside Lacrosse preseason media rankings.
