Ice Hockey Coasts in Home Opener

The 14th ranked Stony Brook University club ice hockey team opened its season in style on Saturday, defeating the Villanova Wildcats at home, 6-2.

The Seawolves left no doubt, scoring early and often against the outmatched visitors. Assistant Captain Pete Zarella (Staten Island, N.Y.) led the team with a goal and three assists.

More than 400 attended the game to support the team’s pursuit of a national championship. Despite remarkable play in years past, the team is yet to be sanctioned as a NCAA team. A petition to change this is on the team website, stonybrookhockey.com.

The ice hockey squad plays their home games at the Rinx in Hauppague because of the absence of an ice rink on campus. They next take the ice at home on Oct. 17 when they host Towson.
