Women’s Lacrosse Comes From Behind, Beats BU

At times, it appeared as though the Boston University Terriers had the upper hand on the Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse team, but in the end the SB seniors accomplished what midfielder Amy Taylor called one of their ‘major goals.’ SBU got their long-awaited, first-ever win against BU, beating them 16-13. Going back-and-forth the whole time, the game was tied 4 times after the first goal.

SB drew first blood, with Taylor scoring a goal 1:51 into the game. Within minutes, the game was tied at 2. BU scored halfway through the 1st half on a free position shot to take a 3-2 lead. Their lead had grown to 7-3 within 4 minutes of that goal. Then, SB mounted a 5-1 run of their own, to tie the game at 8 going into halftime.

BU took the first goal of the second half to take the lead, but SB came back with a 5-0 run with goals from 4 players to gain a 13-9 lead. BU took 2 more goals, coming 11 seconds apart, to close the SB lead to 2, but that is as close as they would get.

On offense, SB was led by attacker Carlee Buck and midfielder Taylor, both seniors. Each had 7 points. Attacker Emily Jaissle had 5 points in the effort, including a team-leading 4 goals. Goalkeeper Jen Sandtorv managed 15 saves.

Head Coach Allison Comito said, ‘The girls wanted this team so bad. BU ended our season last year, so it was a little revenge.’

The Seawolves begin a 3-game road trip on Wednesday with a game at 1:00 PM against New Hampshire.
