The Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse team was the road team on Sunday afternoon, but controlled the unfamiliar field as if it were their own in a 16-3 rout over Binghamton.

An opening 9-0 run by the Seawolves made for a huge start that would propel Stony Brook to an easy victory.

It was the team’s seventh win in a row, 10th win of the season and their second of two in conference play.

This would be the third game in a row and the fifth on the year that Stony Brook allowed three or fewer goals behind the fantastic goaltending by senior Frankie Caridi.

This would also be the 11th time in 12 games where the Seawolves kept their opponents in the single digit scoring range.

On the offensive end, the Seawolves were led by freshman Courtney Murphy. She scored six goals on eight shots and also dished out one assist. Behind her were midfielders Amber Kupres and Dorrien Van Dyke who each recorded hat tricks.

Michelle Rubino was also a factor with one goal, three assists and four draw controls. With this performance she now holds the ninth-most assists and points in program history.

The team as a whole out-shot Binghamton by a whopping margin, 32-12, and won the ground ball battle, scooping up 25 to Binghamton’s 14.

Also impressive was the fact that freshman accounted for 11 of SBU’s 16 goals. They also had 13 of the squad’s 24 points.

The Seawolves continue their domination over the Binghamton women’s lacrosse program, holding an 11-1 all-time record over the Bearcats.

Binghamton fell to 6-6 overall this season.

Head coach Joe Spallina is now just a win shy of the program’s all-time wins record. The mark is currently held by Allison Comito with 42.

On Wednesday Spallina will have a chance to tie the mark when Stony Brook heads up to New Haven, Connecticut to take on Yale.

They will then conclude their road trip the following game at Albany which takes place on Saturday, April 12.

The Seawolves now hold a 10-2 overall record, and a 2-0 record in America East conference play.

SBU has proven so far this year that they can win consistently at home and on the road.

In games at LaValle Stadium this season they are 6-1. Stony Brook is also an impressive 4-1 on the road.
