In the first Division I women’s lacrosse game in the nation on Sunday, Syracuse defeated Jacksonville, 21-8, as junior Alyssa Murray (West Babylon) had three goals and two assists.

Freshman Kayla Treanor led a balanced offense for Syracuse, scoring a game-high five goals and finishing with six points. She equaled the school mark set by sophomore Kailah Kempney last season for the most goals by a freshman in her collegiate debut.

Jacksonville took an early lead, but the Orange, which is ranked No. 1 in the nation in Inside Lacrosse’s Face-Off Yearbook preseason poll, netted eight unanswered goals to take a seven-goal lead at the 17:56 mark. Treanor had two goals and an assist during the run. The Dolphins fought back and cut the lead to five at 10-5 before Treanor found the back of the net with four seconds on the clock to give SU an 11-5 halftime lead.

Junior Alyssa Costantino (West Islip) made four saves for the Orange in the first half, while sophomore Kelsey Richardson tallied four saves in the second half. Karli Tobin posted 10 saves for Jacksonville.
