SU is coming off a season where it tallied its worst record (8-8) since 2003 and missed the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007. Syracuse opened the season with three straight victories against unranked opponents. It won each by a goal, including overtime victories against Vermont and Lafayette. Freshman Charlotte de Vries scored a goal in each of the Orange’s four games. She also tallied the game-winning goals against Vermont and UMass Lowell. De Vries has scored five of the team’s nine goals, and no other player has more than one. The Orange host No. 14 St. Joseph’s on Sept. 13 at J.S. Coyne Stadium.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more
