The Orange look determined to continue its winning ways after defeating a strong opponent in Seattle, 3-1, on Sunday.

It's been an incredible season for Orange athletics. Just a few weeks ago, the Syracuse field hockey and cross country teams won national championships. Now, the men's soccer team has punched its first-ever ticket to the Elite Eight. It's not a national championship, yet, but the team is only three wins away- which to expect wouldn't be too outlandish.

Orange to face Seattle Sunday at the SU Soccer Stadium.

Syracuse men's soccer head coach Ian McIntyre is thrilled to spend and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with his team, while awaiting this Sunday's third round matchup against Seattle. The Redhawks are tied for the most wins in the NCAA with 18.

Orange to travel to Chapel Hill in quarter-finals, seeking revenge for a come-from-behind loss earlier in the season.

It only took 11 minutes for the Orange to pick up where they left off against North Carolina State Wednesday night in the first round of the ACC Tournament. Just 10 days earlier, Syracuse won in come-from-behind fashion against the very same Wolfpack.

"We had to change the game around in the last 17 minutes," head coach Ian McIntyre said.

When North Carolina State striker Julius Duchscherer put the Wolfpack ahead 1-0 with a hard dribbler in the 67th minute of the match versus Syracuse Friday night, Orange forward Ben Polk described it as another 'uh-oh' moment.

Syracuse men's soccer head coach Ian McIntyre: "Every game ends in 90 minutes, but to conceive in the final minute is a tough one."

Up to the final minute of the game between the Clemson Tigers and Syracuse Orange, it was equal. The Orange held tempo for most of the first half but were unable to score, and by the second, the No. 4 Tigers (11-1-2, 4-1-1 ACC) crept back in.

The first ACC match of the season concluded as a 1-1 tie with the Louisville Cardinals.

An evenly played match between the Syracuse Orange and Louisville Cardinals ended after double overtime in a 1-1 draw. Both ACC (3-1-1, 0-0-1 ACC) teams scored in the first half of a brisk Friday night that was unable to produce a victor, perhaps rightfully so.

"It was two honest teams that canceled each other out," Syracuse Head Coach Ian McIntyre said. "A fair result."

Syracuse fell 1-0 to Akron on Tuesday night.

As the clock struck zero, SU Soccer Stadium fell silent. Another close fought game finished against the home team as Syracuse lost 1-0 to Akron.

Coming off a surprising 2-1 defeat at Pittsburgh on Sept. 29, this midweek non-conference game would be a perfect opportuinty for Syracuse to get back to winning ways.

The men's soccer team must replace eight starters from last year, while playing its toughest schedule in eight seasons.

Change is inevitable in college athletics. Players have four, maybe five years with a team. And if they are lucky, they have three years of playing together as the core of the team. After that, the team must rebuild. The men’s soccer team at Syracuse University is no exception.

The Orange have to replace eight players next season, which is no small task for any school.

“It is a big challenge this year, because of the turnover in the roster,” said head coach Ian McIntyre.

The SU men's soccer team captain faces the greatest challenge of his career leading into his final season.

What really happens when an athlete is forced away from the game they love?

Liam Callahan, Syracuse University men's soccer team captain, faced one of the greatest challenges of his life this year heading into the final season of his injury-riddled career.

Callahan transferred to SU after a rough freshman year at Villanova where he broke his leg and ankle playing. During his sophomore year, he and his teammates built a potent defense with an ACC-leading 12 shutouts.

SU gets revenge over conference foe Boston College in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament, 1-0

The last time No. 6 Syracuse lost a game was on October 30th in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. It was the regular season finale for the Orange against the Boston College Eagles. BC scored two first-half goals and Syracuse couldn’t overcome the deficit, falling 2-1. This time around things would be different.
