As monster trucks infested what was once called the Carrier Dome, Syracuse women’s lacrosse was forced to host Louisville at the local Christian Brothers Academy. In a 23-13 SU win, history has been written, not the history you think it is. Emily Hawryschuk has scored five goals, but she’s still a long way off head coach Kayla Treanor’s all-time record. Meanwhile, draw specialist Katelyn Mashewske recorded a career-high 19 draw checks and tied Treanor’s all-time record. Treanor and Mashewske worked all week to bounce back from a poor performance against Cornell.
“It wasn’t even a bad performance against Cornell,” Treanor said after the game. “She still had 11 draw checks, but she wasn’t satisfied. She knows she has the ability to dominate. She took a lot of time, we watched the movie and did a lot of extra work. She made a few changes, and those changes resulted in the difference between 11 draw checks and 19.”
“I worked with Kayla (Treanor) yesterday before practice just to remind him,” Mashewske said. “Learning from one of the best to do it, she’s very helpful.”
Although the final score may not indicate it, Mashewske’s consistency was a necessity in the victory. The Orange led by one at the break, but used a 12-goal third quarter to roll the Cards like those monster trucks rolled The Dome. Talking about that. SU will be back at home on Tuesday, April 19, hosting UAlbany in their final home game of the regular season.
