Despite dropping their last three ranked matchups, the Tigers remain one of the toughest competitors in the conference. Renee Guion added another assist to her 2019 season against No. 11 Duke, moving her season total to 10 and placing her three assists shy of tying the program record for single season assists. The Tigers look to capitalize on the home field advantage as they currently hold a 6-1-1 record at Historic Riggs Field.
The Orange have only managed to produce three wins on the season thus far, with two of them coming in their first two games of the season against Colgate and Siena. However, their most recent victory came last week as they downed Wake Forest by a 2-1 margin at home. Despite minimal marks in the wins column, Syracuse has been led by Meghan Root who has produced three goals and one assist alongside 23 shots. Between the posts, Lysianne Proulx has started every game for the ‘Cuse while conceding 17 goals with a .795 goals against average.
