Syracuse's Devon Parker Named Epoch Player of the Week

Devon Parker had two goals in a 5-3 win over Northwestern, and then had a career-best five goals in a wild 16-15 comeback over Virginia.


Devon Parker scored all of her career-high five goals in the second half to help Syracuse to a dramatic 16-15 come-from-behind win over Virginia. She is this week's Epoch/US Lacrosse Player of the Week.

Syracuse trailed by as many as nine goals in the first half. Parker, a senior, scored her first goal just a minute into the second half to ignite the comeback. She scored four of Syracuse's first eight goals of the second half, and her fifth goal tied the score at 15-15 late in the second half.

Earlier in the week, Syracuse edged Northwestern 5-3 behind a team-high two goals from Parker. Parker scored both of those goals in the first half as the Orange moved out to a 4-0 halftime lead.

Syracuse is 7-0 heading into a game at No. 1 Maryland on Saturday.
