Syracuse goalkeeper Alyssa Costantino is out indefinitely, assistant director of SU athletic communications, Susan Mehringer said.The junior was a passenger in a two-car accident early Sunday morning near Thornden Park. Costantino was taken to the hospital after complaining of facial pain.In a post from her Twitter account on Sunday evening, Costantino said: “…Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers I’m doing well…”The specifics of Costantino’s injury were not disclosed, but she will miss the Orange’s game at Villanova on Friday afternoon. Costantino is being evaluated day-to-day, Mehringer said. After the game against the Wildcats, Syracuse travels to Rutgers to play the Scarlet Knights on Sunday.Costantino began the season as SU’s starting goalie, splitting time with sophomore Kelsey Richardson. But after the Orange’s loss to Florida on March 2, Richardson has started each of the four games since, and played all 60 minutes in Syracuse’s 13-12 loss at Northwestern on Saturday afternoon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThroughout the season, the Orange coaching staff has had the luxury of a two-goalie system, with the option to make mid-game substitutions to throw off opponents. Third-string goalie Shannon Byrne is available and will be used if necessary, head coach Gary Gait said, but this is a chance for Richardson to prove herself.“We lose that ability to make an adjustment,” Gait said Wednesday. “This is an opportunity for Kelsey to step up and maybe use this as a confidence builder. We’ll get to see what she does this weekend.” Comments Published on April 3, 2013 at 12:24 pm Contact Phil: firstname.lastname@example.org | @PhilDAbb Related Stories Third-string goalie Byrne growing under tutelage of Richardson, CostantinoFour Syracuse lacrosse players involved in car crash Facebook Twitter Google+
