    Ice Hockey Beats Rutgers in Rivalry Game

    In front of a crowd of over 450 people, many of them local children in attendance for the Seawolves “Kids Day,” the club ice hockey team put on an impressive performance.

    Squaring off against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, a team the Seawolves defeated earlier this season in a game that will be remembered for a big hit that got star Angelo Serse suspended for a game, Stony Brook put up over 50 shots and picked up a 7-4 victory.

    Both Serse and defense man Phil Borner didn’t believe any of the physicality in the game was a result of the incident in the last game.

    “For the most part that ends when the game ends, ” Borner said.

    “A little bit,” Serse said when asked whether the Rutgers players were giving him any extra attention. “There was a little bit of chirping, but nothing to bad.”

    Rutgers got on the board first, and even though the shots were 17-5 in favor of the Seawolves after the first period, the score was tied at one.

    “We took them a little to lightly,” Serse said. “We should have dominated most of the game.”

    The second period was more of the same shot wise, but Stony Brook was able to put the puck in the net three times. Chris Ryan, John Passantino, and Serse each scored for the Seawolves.

    In the third, Serse picked up a hat trick when scoring the Seawolves sixth goal, and an empty-netter capped the scoring.

    Although the Seawolves were able to pick up the victory, they know there is more work to be done to get to nationals.

    “Defensively we weren’t as good as we could be,” Ryan said. “But we are getting better and better as the season goes along.”

    Next weekend the Seawolves travel to Pennsylvania for a tough pair of games against Drexel and West Chester before returning home for a two game series the following weekend.

    “Big win, every wins a big win at this point,” Borner said. “We’re behind the 8-ball. We need to win every game from here on out, doesn’t matter who we’re playing, every win is a big win.”
