With just under eight minutes left in the game and Syracuse up 20-5 against Binghamton, Jalyn Jimerson was swarmed by three Binghamton defenders as she ran towards the net.
Jimerson, who didn’t see any action against Stanford on Friday night, was able to go through all defenders from the left sideline and launched a shot past Emily Manning to score Syracuse’s 21st goal of the afternoon.
“(The team) shares the ball really well and they’re very unselfish,” head coach Kayla Treanor said. “We have a lot of great offensive players that are threats.”
The goal made Jimerson the 10th different player on Syracuse to score a goal. Sam Swart scored two minutes later, making her the 11th different SU player to score. Overall, No. 3 Syracuse’s (2-0, 0-0 Atlantic Coast) starters combined for 17 goals in its 23-6 win over Binghamton (0-1, 0-0 America East). Although the team’s preseason All-Americans recorded 12 goals, other players stepped up to contribute in a complete team effort.
After scoring in the first 50 seconds against Stanford, it took Syracuse four minutes to get its first goal against Binghamton. As she had done many times before, Emily Hawryschuk beat a Binghamton defender one on one and dodged the help defender. She then tossed in the shot to give Syracuse a 1-0 lead.
The second score came from freshman Olivia Adamson, who recorded the opening goal against Stanford on Friday. At first, she was guarded by Gabrielle Marshall, unable to get by her. Eventually, Marshall got too close in Adamson’s shooting space to give her a free-position attempt.
After the whistle blew, Adamson took a few strides and got as close to the goal as she could before Manning and the defenders tried to shut her down. She then launched the shot and scored the second goal of the game for Syracuse.
The defense keyed in on Meaghan Tyrrell, who scored six goals against the Cardinal. So when she received pressure from two defenders after Savannah Sweitzer set a pick, Meaghan dished it off to a rolling Sweitzer who extended the Orange’s lead to 3-0.
About a minute later, Syracuse got on the board again from a player who typically didn’t score last season. Sierra Cockerille took a pass from Emma Tyrrell and then ran up to Gaby Castillo looking like she was going to shoot, but she faked it and dodged to the right. Cockerille then wound up her from outside the 8-meter and launched a shot into the top left corner of the net, putting Syracuse up by four goals six minutes into the game.
Maddy Baxter became the fifth player to score for Syracuse when she wrapped around Megan Carney for a curl cut. Meaghan hit Baxter in stride and she quickly netted it to completely distance Syracuse from Binghamton within the first seven minutes of the game.
Binghamton managed to score its first goal when Kenna Newman passed it to Olivia Muscolino, but after staying quiet most of the first period, the final two Syracuse goals of the period came from Meaghan and Syracuse led 7-2.
The Bearcats opened the scoring in the second quarter on a woman-up opportunity, but Carney answered back 30 seconds later with her first goal of the day. Emma, who has played more of a midfielder role with Carney and Hawryschuk back, added on another goal after she was fouled and earned a free-position shot.
The rest of the period was mainly controlled by Syracuse and the main attacking trio of Carney, Meaghan and Hawryschuk. However, Cockerille added her second goal of the day when Syracuse was a woman-up with just under three minutes off of another free position shot.
To start the third period, Cockerille flipped a pass to Adamson and then cut towards the goal. Adamson hit the cutting Cockerille for a give-and-go and she held her stick above the defender and scored her third goal of the night for a hat trick for Syracuse to go up 14-3.
After Cockerille’s goal, Carney and Meaghan tacked on a goal and three goals respectively to widen the gap to a 14-goal lead.
In the fourth period with the game essentially won for the Orange, Treanor gave opportunities for different players to get time on the field and they didn’t let up on the attack. The first goal came from Adamson who took a defender head on and then spun around her in front of the net to get a goal.
“She’s a great player,” Carney said of Adamson. “She can use her right and left hand which is really helpful for us.”
The final goal of the day was again from Payton Rowley on a free-position play, and she became the sixth player to score multiple goals for Syracuse.
“It’s awesome to be that deep,” Carney said. “Everyone is a threat on our team, so being able to know that we have that backup when we need them is reassuring.”
