A little late in posting these photos, but here’s my gallery of shots from Army’s big road game at the Carrier Dome against Syracuse last month. Neither team really broke out offensively (Army senior Garrett Thul saw his record-setting goal-scoring streak end) as Army lost 6-2 to the Orangemen, who were ranked No. 18 nationally at the time of the game.

Above, Thul celebrates with teammates after junior middie Tyler Kamide’s goal in the second half. Thul scored seven goals on March second to break Army’s all-time career goals record of 140 set by Scott Finlay from 1975-78.
Syracuse doesn’t let fans sit behind the goals, so instead you end up with a lot of blank orange backgrounds, like this one (the school covers these seats with Syracuse-logo chair covers):

Billy Ward had one of Syracuse’s six goals:
Here’s the view of the Carrier Dome from the press box. Hard to imagine this place totally full with a basketball court on the field:
Here’s a nice portrait of JoJo with the ball around midfield:
