It ended in a win. This time, the No. 4 Orange (2-0) rolled through the University of California, Davis (0-1), in a 4-0 victory.Roos Weers, who scored the first goal of Syracuse’s season Friday night, wasted no time in continuing what she’d started. Two minutes, 32 seconds into the contest, Weers received a backward pass from Alyssa Manley and beat UC Davis goalie Erica Cohen to the far post. Weers contributed again at 30:16, setting up Emma Tufts for a one-timer that snuck inside the far post.Syracuse went on to score two more goals, but it seemed the two-goal cushion was all the Orange backline needed. It stifled any UC Davis attempt at offense, limiting the Aggies to a single shot on goal through 70 minutes, which goalie Jess Jecko saved.Syracuse dominated on Friday like it had on Thursday. The Orange outshot Stanford and UC Davis by a combined 37 to nine margin. SU also held a 4-1 penalty corner advantage against UC Davis.And while the defense stopped UC Davis, Syracuse’s Manley added to Syracuse’s lead at 39:04 when her penalty shot found the net, giving SU a 3-0 advantage. The final goal came from SU standout Emma Russell, who beat the goalie to her left side off a feed from Laura Hurff.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will conclude its three-game California road trip with a 3 p.m. EST game at Pacific on Aug. 31.last_img
