Women’s soccer drops two at Omni Hotels Classic in Boulder, Colorado

Women’s soccer finished its non-conference play this weekend with a trip to Boulder, Colorado to play in the Omni Hotels Classic. They fell to Northern Colorado 1-0 on Sunday after dropping a 4-0 decision against Colorado on Friday.

The lone goal in Sunday’s game was scored when Northern Colorado’s Ambree Bellin banged a free kick past SBU goalkeeper Ashley Castanio in the 21st minute.

Determined not to lose, Stony Brook threw everything they had at UNC goalie Natalie D’Adamio in the second half. For her part, D’Adamio made seven saves –four of which were in the second half – to keep the hungry Seawolves at bay.

Despite the loss, the Seawolves outshot the Bears by a 15-12 margin. Stony Brook was led by senior Larissa Nysch, who led all players with four shots on goal. She also had two shots in Friday’s game. Goalkeeper Castanio also had a stellar weekend, making seven saves.

Friday’s game, against their first PAC-12 opponent, saw the Seawolves giving up a goal just 2:15 minutes into the match. Colorado was relentless, scoring four goals altogether and outshooting their East coast foes by a 20-4 margin.

This was the first time this season that the Seawolves were shut out by another team. In seven of nine games this year, Stony Brook has allowed their opponents to score one goal or less.

The Seawolves dropped to 5-3-1 with Sunday’s loss, making them 0-3-1 in road and neutral matches this season, as opposed to an undefeated 5-0-0 at home.

America East conference play for women’s soccer begins next week. The defending champions, Stony Brook will open their conference play at Vermont next Sunday. Kickoff is 1 p.m.
