Syracuse Kicks off 2013 Hosting Three-Way Scrimmage on Sat.

Hofstra has five goalies in the mix to replace the departed Andrew Gvozden. The only one who received any playing time for the Pride in 2012 was Chris Selva who played a little over three minutes. The roster also features Ohio State transfer Ryan Brant, junior Jason Rosenzweig and junior college product Eddie Collins.

Hofstra is coached by Seth Tierney who begins his seventh year with the Pride. He has led the team to four NCAA Tournament berths in the last five seasons.

The Crusaders are coached by former Syracuse standout Jim Morrissey who played for the Orange from 1993-96 and was a member of two NCAA championship teams. Morrissey is in his third season at Holy Cross. In 2012, the Crusaders were 5-10 overall and 0-6 in the Patriot League.

Holy Cross brings back five starters from last season, including captain and 2012 leading scorer James Kennedy (23 goals, 19 assists). Midfielder John Hannan is the Crusaders' other top offensive threat. Hannan had a team-high 27 goals last year.

Holy Cross was picked to finish sixth out of seven teams in the 2013 Patriot League Preseason Poll.

Syracuse plays its second round-robin scrimmage on Saturday Feb. 2 in Columbus, Ohio against Ohio State and Robert Morris. Start time is 11:30 a.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
