Games to Circle
2/21 vs Army West Point: The Syracuse Orange open up the season against a fellow New York State program and usual early-season opponent Army West Point. Last season, the Orange took down the Black Knights 9-7 and using a four-goal run in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.
2/27 & 4/24 vs/@ Virginia: One of two ACC foes that they will face twice, the Orange and Cavaliers will meet on late February and late April. During the last full season (2020), Virginia took down Syracuse, 15-14, in the dome despite a 14-save performance from Syracuse goalie Drake Porter.
3/25 @ Duke: Syracuse’s second game of their ACC slate is a matchup against the Duke Blue Devils. During the 2019 , Syracuse took down Duke 9-8 in overtime. The Orange and Blue Devils are viewed as the top two teams in the conference, so this will be the most anticipated game in the ACC this season.
