No. 5 Syracuse's Firepower Too Strong for the Golden Eagles

Redshirt freshman Anna Muzika helped set up MU's lone goal of the first after picking up a ground ball while the Orange attempted to clear near midfield.

Priem stood tall in net during the first 30 minutes with seven saves, including three straight at one point late in the opening frame. The Berwyn, Pa., native stopped a shot from the middle of the fan as the Orange first gained the zone with 3:55 left and followed that up with a kick save off a failed clear and a stop on a free position shot.

Marquette added goals on its first two shots of the second half after SU tallied the first three goals of the period. Emily Donovan found Gleason in the middle of the fan with a beautiful feed at the 19:50 mark before Costanza recorded MU's third goal of the afternoon on a free position shot with 17:33 remaining.

MU scored the final three goals of the game after Syracuse took an 18-3 lead.

Costanza scored her second of the afternoon on a shot from the top of the fan with 5:36 remaining before Gleason added her second with 1:43 left on a feed from Brown.

Gleason added her lone assist with 1:24 left as she hit a streaking Lisa Beltramello from across the fan.

Syracuse held a 23-2 edge in shots during the first half and a 12-3 lead in draw controls. Treanor, Nims and Collins each collected a pair of goals for SU in the first.

The Golden Eagles will play their final game of their inaugural season at Notre Dame, the alma mater of MU head coach Meredith Black and assistant coach Jackie Doherty, on Saturday, April 26 at noon CT.
