Elmira Renegades wins home opener against Syracuse

ELMIRA, NY (WETM) — The Renegades picked up their first-ever win at their home game on Saturday.

The Elmira Renegades defeated the Syracuse Spark 16-11 to claim their first win in franchise history in their inaugural season in the PBLA. The Professional Box Lacrosse Association made its Elmira debut Saturday night to a good crowd at First Arena.

Owen Hill scored two goals from penalties in the first quarter and his first gave the Renegades a 1–0 lead. Maccoy Abrams also scored twice for the Renegades in the first game, and a goal from Syracuse lacrosse player Bradley Voigt gave Elmira a 6-0 lead late in the first game.

The Spark would come back to tie the game at 9 but Elmira would never fall behind and would win in a 1-1 win that season.

The Elmira Renegades will host Salem Mayhem on Saturday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m. at First Arena
