    Men’s Lacrosse Wins Against Harvard

    The Stony Brook Seawolves Men’s Lacrosse team defeated the Harvard Crimson by a score of 13-8. Stony Brook improves its record to 13-8 with the win. Stony Brook’s offense dominated the game, having gotten off 50 shots. The game had gone back-and-forth during the first quarter, but the Seawolves broke it open in the second, and never looked back.

    Harvard drew first blood, with Greg Cohen scoring 1 minute into the game. Stony Brook scored a pair of goals to make it 2-1. Harvard responded with 2 of their own, to which SB answered with 2, to close out the quarter up 4-3. In the second, SB scored 3 more goals, to finish a 5-0 run. Harvard was able to get one shortly before halftime, to make the score 7-4 at the break.

    The intermission didn’t seem to break the Seawolves’ momentum, as they opened the half with 3 unanswered goals. Harvard got 2, but Sean Chamberlain scored his second goal of the quarter to make it 11-6 with one quarter to play. With an assist in the second, he finished the day with 3 points. In the fourth, each team scored 2 goals, and Stony Brook was able to pick up their first win.

    Stony Brook was led in scoring by Ryan Hughes. The junior midfielder had 3 goals and 2 assists. In total, 9 different SB players scored in the victory. They also had only one penalty to Harvard’s three. The Seawolf defense was strong as well, with Brendan Callahan making a career-high 23 saves. Harvard was able to clear the ball almost every time, unlike SB, but was unable to make much of those opportunities.

    Head Coach Rick Sowell was ‘very happy’ with the win, his first as the team’s new head coach. He described this as a ‘key game,’ as last year the team started with a very similar schedule, and went 0-4 to begin the season, including a close loss to Harvard.

    The Seawolves travel to Colorado to face Denver this Saturday. The game begins at 1:30PM.
