Kevin Lynch and Mike McKenna were the game's first and third stars. McKenna was an interesting selection after getting bailed out by a Crunch extra attacker goal that took him off the hook for a late game softie.

Oh hey, look there, it's our old pals Slater Koekkoek and Dylan Blujus on the scoresheet. Where you been? Don't be a stranger.

At the moment, Syracuse holds a 3 point lead atop the North Division with 1 game in hand on Albany.
