Women’s Lacrosse defeats Iona, Vermont and Siena over past week


Stony Brook dominated this week going 3-0, scoring a combined 58 goals and holding their opponents to only 13 goals over the three game span.

The week started off at home on Wednesday against the metro-area rival Iona, winning 21-3. Senior Adelphi transfer star Clair Peterson continued her domination of the NCAA with 8 points on three goals and 5 assists with help from senior midfielder Demmianne Cook, who scored seven goals of her own.

The Seawolves tied their school record for margin of victory winning by 18.

The weekend started off in similar fashion on the road at their America East rival Vermont (4-6, 0-1AE) in Burlington to start conference play. A strong road performance led the Seawolves to a 19-5 victory.

Post-game, Stony Brook was most impressed with the goalkeeping of junior Frankie Caridi, who tallied a season-best 10 saves. Senior midfielder Janine Hillier posted eight points on 3 goals and 5 assists. The Seawolves improved to 1-0 in America East play

On Sunday, Stony Brook traveled a short trip to Loundonville, NY upstate to face Siena (1-8), where they once again imposed their will on the weaker opponent, winning  18-5.

Once again, it was all Hillier and Cook on the offensive end with seven and six points respectively. The defensive-minded Seawolves kept their opponents in single digits for the ninth time this season.

Senior Claire Petersen had 17 points in the three game span. She leads the team with 51 points.

Stony Brook also played a tight game the previous week against Maryland, ranked first overall in both polls, losing to the Terrapins 8-3.

Playing slowly and deliberately against the Maryland defense, Stony Brook only trailed 4-3 at the end of the first half.

Petersen led the Seawolves with a goal and an assist in that game.

All in all, the Seawolves closed the weekend 8-2 and sit at 15/16 in the country in the latest polls.

Stony Brook next takes on Fresno State on Tuesday and then take on conference rival Albany on Saturday. Both will be held in LaValle Stadium at 7 p.m. and 1 p.m. respectively.
