The Seawolves lost to the University of New Hampshire for the first time since 2007 on Saturday night.

A 71st minute tiebreaking goal proved crucial for the Wildcats as it was the game-winning shot at Bremner Field.

​Stony Brook’s 5-match unbeaten streak over the Wildcats unfortunately came to an end (2-0-3).

In terms of the season, the loss puts the Seawolves at 5-6-0, and 1-1-0 during America East play.

The Wildcats, on the other hand, improved to 2-0-0 in league play this year, and an overall 8-3-0 record.

​In the 27th minute, New Hampshire broke the scoreless tie by bouncing a previously blocked attempt into the net for the goal.

Then, in the 51st, Junior Keith McKenna scored from 25 yards away, tying the score at one.

It was McKenna’s second consecutive game with a goal, giving him two goals this week and also two goals in his career.

However, in the 71st minute, New Hampshire’s Steven Palumbo was able to give the Wildcats the win with his head into the lower left corner of the goal.

​Though Stony Brook outshot New Hampshire and had more shots on goal, they ultimately fell short in goals.

​The Seawolves hope to rebound from this loss and take on their in-state rival SUNY Binghamton this Wednesday night, 7 p.m. at LaValle Stadium.

Binghamton is coming off of a 3-0 victory over UMass-Lowell on Saturday,

They saw goals from Ben Nicholson, Marts Reid-Warder and Logan Roberts in the victory.

Stony Brook will then travel to UMass-Lowell next Saturday before traveling to Lehigh the following Tuesday.
