NYU Sweeps Weekend Road Series Against Syracuse University

By Gabby Rossi

The NYU Violets played a strong offensive game this weekend against Syracuse, scoring a total of 13 goals in two games.

Both teams played a high scoring game on Friday throughout the entire three periods. NYU made it onto the scoreboard only 48 seconds into the game with a goal by Isaac Davison, assisted by Jackson Oleson and Tommy He. Less than three minutes later, Davison scored his second of the game with an assist from Elias Cohen. Adam Peck also scored his first goal of the game during the first period, assisted by Joe Solovey and Thomas Huang. Syracuse put up three goals during the first period, leaving the teams tied going into the second period. Syracuse then went on to score twice more during the second, but Davison scored his third goal of the game – a power play goal assisted by Adam Peck and James Orne. NYU did all of the scoring during the third period, with a goal from James Orne, assisted by Adam Svoboda; two more goals by Davison with assists from Adam Svoboda and Jackson Oleson; and two more goals from Adam Peck, assisted by Jackson Oleson and Adam Svoboda, and James Orne, respectively. The Violets won 9-5, with five of the nine goals from Isaac Davison, and a hat trick from Adam Peck.

“It was a cool experience that I will never forget. I am really grateful for my teammates who were able to consistently put me in A+ scoring positions all night” said Isaac Davison.

NYU also won their second game of the weekend against Syracuse. All three of the goals during the first period came from the Violets. Adam Svoboda scored the first one, with an assist from Adam Peck and John Dorio, and Alex Chernyavskiy scored the other two, assisted by Jake Geller, and Mac Brice and Tommy He – these were Chernyavskiy’s first two goals as an NYU Violet. During the second period, Mac Brice scored another goal for NYU, assisted by James Orne, and Syracuse scored their first of the game. Syracuse scored another two goals during the third period, but came up short and were ultimately unable to catch up with NYU.

“It was nice to finally get the first one,” Alex Chernyavskiy said on scoring his first two goals. “I hope we keep getting better each game and keep the winning streak going.”

NYU plays their final two games of the semester against University of Rhode Island this Friday December 10 at 7pm and Saturday December 11 at 3:30pm, both in Rhode Island.
