Syracuse’s ice hockey game at Cornell tonight has been postponed due to a shelter-in-place order on the Cornell campus.

Cornell University sent shelter in place alert At around 2:10 p.m. Tuesday, local police were chasing a man with a gun in Cayuga Heights, north of campus, following reports of gunfire. Around 7:15 p.m., Cornell survey the shelter-in-place order. It comes just days after students were evacuated from campus due to a bomb threat at Cornell, as well as other Ivy League schools. The match, which was scheduled for 7 p.m., will be attempted to be caught at a later date, according to Cornell Athletics.

Syracuse (4-5-2, 3-1-0 College Hockey America) was on a two-game winning streak heading into tonight’s game. Cornell (1-4-1, 0-3-1 CHA) scored his first draw against Brown last Saturday.

Of the 14 times the teams have played, Syracuse has won only once. The last time the pair met was on November 26, 2019, when Syracuse lost 4-1. Abby Moloughney currently leads Syracuse with six goals and six assists, and Jessica DiGirolamo recently became Syracuse’s all-time leader in goals for a defenseman with 31.


While waiting for no catch-up in the coming week and a half, Syracuse has 12 days until its next game, a home game against Penn State.
