It was a busy week for the Syracuse Titans (5-9-1, 4-6-0).

The girls helped to clear debris, weeds and dead plants/trees at Legacy Park in Syracuse. The girls got dirty, founds lots of snails, dead snakes and put in a ton of work! We are proud of the difference our Titans made that day. Check out pictures here.

On Thursday the Titans faced #1 nationally ranked Davis (14-0-0, 10-0-0). It wasdavis a wet and soggy game, in which Syracuse let some big mistakes happen and the Darts quickly capitalized on those mistakes. Davis took total control of the game, winning 8-2. Facing a 7-0 deficit and a near mercy rule and early finish to the game, the cuse girls held tough and rebounded with 2 goals from Freshman Ashlyn Hall (11th and 12th of the season). The first double digit goals against the tough Davis defense this year, although it came at the hands of a 6 goal loss. Kelsey Steed paced the Titans with 4 shots on goal.

On Friday they Titans faced the weather delayed rematch with the Layton Lancers. (8-4-1, 7-3-1). It was a difficult 1-0 loss on our senior night, but a very well played match overall by the Titans. The Titan defense held strong all day long, and Ashlyn Hall, 7 shots,  and Adriana Owen, 4 shots,  paced the Titans offensively. We love our seniors and are grateful for the time, work, leadership, and dedication they have given to Syracuse Soccer!
