Goalkeeper Alex Bono and the Syracuse Orange continued their dominant defensive season, as they earned their eighth shoutout of the season in a win against Virginia.

    • I’m not sure I’d call Michigan a solid squad… The schedule has admittedly been difficult, but they are 1-5-3, winless in conference, have scored all of 4 goals this season (3 of which came in the same game). They have been shut out 6 times already. No team that gets shut out in 2/3 games can be all that solid a squad.
