In addition, the Syracuse men's soccer team defeated Dartmouth in the NCAA Tournament to advance to the soccer equivelant of the Sweet 16. If they win that match, they could face Georgetown with a Final Four berth on the line. The same Georgetown squad that has eliminated them from the NCAA Tournament two years in a row.
