The game was marked by hard hitting and physical play.
Weve been physical in the scrimmages,” SU coach John Desko said in the post-game press conference. “We can play that way. When you play an academy team, theyre going to be physical. We knew that coming into the game. We played very well, but we got a couple penalties in retaliation which disappointed me. Other than that we did a pretty good job and no one got hurt.
It was the first game of a doubleheader at the Dome. Cornell and Hobart are slated to play in the 6 p.m. nightcap.
Army returns to central New York for a game against Cornell on Saturday, March 6 at 3 p.m. Top-ranked Syracuse visits No. 2 Virginia for a 1 p.m. showdown on Sunday, March 7.
