    Men’s soccer opens season with win against FDU

    Stony Brook opened up its 2012 campaign with bang, scoring a convincing 5-0 away victory over Fairleigh Dickinson on Friday.

    The Seawolves got goals from Berian Gobeil Cruz, Alejandro Fritz and Antonio Crespi, as well as two own goals from Fairleigh Dickinson.

    In the 7th minute, Fritz, a late addition to the squad from Hungary, scored on his first collegiate shot after he chested down the ball off of a deflection and shot it into the bottom right corner.

    Gobeil Cruz added to the lead in the 40th minute, receiving a pass from the endline from freshman Sverre Ofstad and blasting the ball into the right corner.

    Crespi made it 3-0 in the 57th minute, taking a pass from midfielder Leonardo Fernandes, slipping behind the defense and shooting the ball past Fairleigh Dickinson goalkeeper Jacob Lissek. Fairleigh Dickinson added two own goals in the 78th and 82nd minutes to complete the rout.

    The five goals Stony Brook scored tied the school record for most goals in a game. Goalkeeper Carlos Villa made four saves, all in the first half, to secure the shutout.

    Stony Brook will travel to take on Villanova on August 28, and play its home opener on August 31 versus Lehigh.
