    Women’s Soccer Steals a Win, Gets Tie Over Weekend

    Before the Seawolves entered overtime on Sunday’s East Carolina game, the fans could hear them scream from the huddle ‘It’s our game, lets show them!’ Though Sunday’s home game against East Carolina was a draw, this weekend showed women’s soccer is continuing its strong play this season.

    Seawolves Win 2-1 in Overtime

    On Friday, Stony Brook (SB) bounced back after two straight losses, winning in an overtime road game against Fordham (2-1-1). Freshman Morgan Sims found a loose ball off a Trine Allenberg corner kick, putting it in the back of the net to break the games 1-1 tie. The goal, with six minutes remaining, was Sims first of the season.

    The other Seawolf goal was scored three minutes into the second half, by freshman Danielle Tanaglia.

    Women’s Soccer Ties East Carolina in Double OT

    On Sunday, SB hosted East Carolina (3-1-2), playing them in the longest game of the season. The double overtime game was a scoreless tie, but not with out its moments.

    The Seawolves tested East Carolina with shots all day, but rarely created solid chances that could find the back of the net. Freshman Jen Egan showed off her speed and foot skills by splitting two defenders to find an open Kate Collins for a pass, leading to a Seawolf shot, turned away at the 10:45 mark. This type of play happened all game- often a brilliant moves turned aside by strong defense.

    The Seawolves and East Carolina were nearly even in shots on goal, with 10 for SB and eight for the visitors.

    The Seawolves will play on the road against Ivy League team Columbia (3-1-1). The game, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 21, kicks off at 7:00 PM.
