Senior attackman Michael Powell scored six points to become Syracuse's all-time leading scorer with 288, and goalie Jay Pfeifer tied his career high of 19 saves in the fourth-ranked Orangemen's 13-9 win over No. 5 Georgetown yesterday in Washington.

Powell tied the record, held by his brothers Casey Powell and Ryan Powell, with a fourth-quarter assist on a goal by Brian Nee that gave Syracuse (11-2) a 10-8 lead with 14:33 to play.

He broke the record at the 12:17 mark, assisting on Brian Crockett's goal to make it 11-8.

The goals were part of a game-ending, 6-1 run from the Orangemen, who trailed 6-5 at halftime and were down a goal late in the third quarter.

Pfeifer helped the surge stand up, making 11 second-half saves as the Hoyas (10-3) tried to rally.
