Five different Syracuse players scored two goals and the Orange were never really threatened as they defeated Denver in their season opener, 13-7.

Following two lackluster scrimmages, the No. 1 ranked Syracuse lacrosse team finally got to take the field for a game that mattered. The Orange wasted little time showing why they’ve received such preseason hype, as they blew by Denver, 13-7.

Senior midfielder Jovan Miller started the route for the Orange with a 15-yard strike less than a minute into the contest, and Syracuse led 6-2 after just one period of action.

Though he is only a sophomore, SU's JoJo Marasco has shown that he is one of the top college lacrosse players in the country. As a tribute to his talent, he was allowed to wear the No. 22 this season – a hallowed number at Syracuse University.

CORRECTION: The NewsHouse incorrectly stated that former Syracuse lacrosse player Mike Leveille was among players who wore No. 22. Leveille actually wore No. 19. We have removed that reference from the following article and apologize for the error.

The No. 22 has had a long-standing legacy throughout the history of the Syracuse University men’s lacrosse team. Every SU player who has worn the hallowed number has left a unique mark on the lacrosse program.

The No. 1 ranked Orange split a pair of exhibition games Saturday, losing to Hofstra 6-5 and beating Le Moyne 10-5.

The last time Syracuse played in the Carrier Dome, Army used physicality and double overtime to pull a stunning upset. After an all-to-long offseason, the Orange players were ready and eager to begin avenging the loss.

“It was nice to be back in here and wash away the bad memories,” SU goalie John Galloway said. “It’s out of the memory bank. Now it’s time to focus on 2011.”
