A puck from below the goal line came to Savannah Rennie on top of the crease, and she hacked at it. RMU goalie Lauren Bailey made the initial stop, but the rebound looped high in the air and landed behind her in the crease where Kristen Siermachesky jammed it home. The junior defender returned from an upper-body injury this weekend and tallied her first career goal in her 62nd game.The game settled into a lull with chances for both sides before Marino capitalized on a neutral zone turnover. She beat Logan Hicks, who started the season as a forward, for speed and roofed a wrist shot over Welch’s right shoulder, re-establishing RMU’s three-goal lead.Another Syracuse player, Amanda Backebo, earned her first career goal in her 84th game with the Orange. Victoria Klimek’s initial shot was kicked right to Backebo cutting in on the other side, and the goalie dove but couldn’t reach Backebo’s shot. It cut the lead to 4-2, which would remain for the rest of the game.Syracuse heads to the CHA Tournament as the No. 3 seed and is locked in to play against No. 6 seed Lindenwood on Wednesday at the Harborcenter in Buffalo with the time yet to be decided. The first quarterfinal starts at 4:30 p.m., and the second begins at 7:30 p.m. The Orange won’t face RMU again unless both teams make the championship game next Friday.
