Syracuse jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first two minutes of the game when Primeau one-timed a rebound into the back of the net. DiGirolamo set up the goal when she took a pass from Moloughney and fired a shot from the point that was saved by Lindenwood (5-18, 3-6) goalie Emily Finach.
Klimek tallied Syracuse’s second goal with 5:22 remaining in the first period. Sophomore Tatum White took a pass from Marchand and carried the puck from the blue line, wrapped behind the Lindenwood net and fed Klimek on the crease for the goal.
Primeau netted her second goal of the game with 2.4 seconds remaining in the second period to give SU a 3-1 advantage. DeSmet set up the play with a pass to DiGirolamo at the Syracuse blue line and then DiGirolamo sent a pass up the middle of the ice to Primeau. The forward put the shot in from the slot for her first career two-goal game. The assist was DiGirolamo’s 59th at Syracuse, which is a record for Orange defensemen.
Syracuse scored two goals within the first 90 seconds of the third period to take a 5-1 lead. Bellefontaine won a faceoff that was corralled by Moloughney who sent a cross-ice pass to Marchand in left circle. Marchand put a shot into the top right of the LU goal for a 4-1 Orange lead. With her second assist of the game, Moloughney increased her career multi-point game total to 28, which breaks the record of 27 set by Melissa Piacintini (2012-16).
Moloughney made it a four-goal game 40 seconds later when she put a shot in the top left corner of the goal from the bottom of the right circle to put the Orange up 5-1. Bellefontaine and sophomore Rayla Clemons assisted on the play.
Klimek gave the Orange a 6-1 lead when she scored a shorthanded goal on a breakaway with 11:05 left in the game.
