    Women’s Lacrosse Falls to Denver

    Stony Brook, NY- Last Sunday, Mar. 11, the Stony Brook Seawolves squared off against the University of Denver and fell 17-9. Pounded by 42 shots from Denver, the Seawolves recorded their first loss of the season and drop to 3-1 on the season. The game ended their 3-game home stand before they would hit the road later in the week against Sacred Heart.

    Denver broke the ice with the game’s first goal at the 26:46 mark, the first of freshman Ali Flury’s 5 goals in the contest. SB would tie the game a minute later off a Kaitlin Leggio free position shot. The 1-1 tie did not last long as Denver responded with a 5-0 run, and would end the half up 3-9. The Pioneers recorded 24 shots in the first half alone, to SBU’s 10 attempts.

    The Seawolves’ Kaitlin Leggio had a goal and 3 assists for 4 points, along with Katie Savino’s 2 goals and assist for 3 points. SBU’s goalie Jen Sandtorv, facing over 40 shots, turned away 10 but still recorded a loss. Denver was led by Flury’s 5 goals along with Steph Coyne’s 5 points; the Pioneers had 5 players with at least 3 points.

    Seawolves’ head coach Allison Comito said, ‘I give Denver credit… It was clear to see why they are the 16th ranked team in the country.’ After the victory, the Pioneer’s ranking jumped up a spot to 15th.

    Later in the week against Sacred Heart, the Seawolves bounced back and recorded a 16-12 victory to bring their record to 4-1. This Sunday they play host to New Jersey rival Monmouth. Their next game is Tuesday, Mar. 17, against Sienna. Tuesday’s game is on the road for their final match before America East conference play begins. Game time is at 4:00 PM.
