Cuse scores buzzer-beating goal to seal five-game comeback

  Nick Mariano's last-second goal capped a 10-9 Syracuse win Saturday afternoon.

No. 6 Syracuse men's lacrosse battled back from an early five-goal deficit to down No. 12 Albany 10-9 Saturday afternoon, thanks to a last-second goal from Nick Mariano before the final horn.

Tied at 9-9 with two seconds left, the senior midfielder took a pass from Nate Solomon who fired low and past Great Danes goalie JD Colarusso for the deciding score. That marked Mariano's only goal for the day and his fourth on the season through two games.

Syracuse was buried in an early hole after Albany built a 6-1 advantage by the 10:43 mark in the second quarter. The Orange then scored the next six goals and eight of the following 10 to take a one-goal lead entering the final four minutes. Albany's Sean Eccles then responded with the tying goal at 3:43, setting the stage for Mariano's heroics soon after.

Syracuse moves to 2-0 with the win while Albany drops to 0-1 to start the year.
