    Seawolves Look to Bounce Back After Tough Home Loss

    The Seawolves will take their 1-1 record to Maine to take on the Black Bears this Saturday, Sept. 13. Maine is 1-1, coming off of some last minute heroics by sophomore quarterback Adam Farkes. Maine beat Monmouth by a score of 21-17 after losing their opening week game to BCS team Iowa 46-3.

    The Seawolves are 1-0 all time against Maine. Last year, the Seawolves beat the Black Bears on homecoming weekend 30-23. After tying the game on a last second field goal, it took two overtimes before the Seawolves finally punched one in. Running back Conte Cuttino had the winning score.

    Maine’s offense is led by senior running back Jhamal Fluellen. Last year, he rushed for over 1,000 yards in 11 games and has rushed for 223 yards already this year. Maine’s passing game is led by Adam Farkes, who started several games last year as a freshman. He has completed over 50% of his passes, with three touchdowns and two interceptions. No receivers have over 100 yards on the year. On the defensive side, 24 players have at least one tackle, one interception and two blocked kicks. They have two sacks on defense, while only giving up one so far this season.

    The Stony Brook defense will have to contain the Black Bears’ running game. The Seawolves have only given up 201 yards in two games, and have rushed for over 400. Maine has given up 421 yards on the ground. Look for the Seawolves to continue that number, as it appears it will be a favorable match up for Stony Brook.

    The game is on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. Listen live on WUSB 90.1 FM.
