CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati lacrosse team (3-11, 0-7 BIG EAST) was defeated by No. 2 Syracuse (13-2, 6-0), 22-5, on Sunday afternoon at Nippert Stadium.

But the Orange went on a 7-0 scoring run to put the game in SU’s control, 10-3, with 7:28 remaining in the first half. UC scored one more in the remaining minutes to head into the locker room down 12-4.
Cincinnati was held to only one goal in the second half as Syracuse steadily built its advantage before settling with a 22-5 victory.
