The Michigan State lacrosse team, granted the 12th seed in this year's NCAA lacrosse tournament as the Midwest representative, watched host Syracuse score 15 goals in the second period en route to a 28-7 rout in a first-round game last night.
The Orangemen (11-2) were led by Jamie Archer, who scored all of his game-high six goals in the first half, and Tom Marechek, who added four goals and two assists. Syracuse, which had 13 players score, outshot the Spartans 41-11.
The Orangemen, seeded fifth, will test No. 4 Johns Hopkins Sunday at Homewood Field in the quarterfinals.
