    Seawolves Take a 1-1 Tie

    The Stony Brook Seawolves came from behind and battled to a 1-1 draw with the Hartford Hawks and ended their two game losing streak in front of over a two hundred strong home crowd at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. With the tie, the Seawolves now stand at 7-6-2, 2-3-1 in America East Conferences play while Hartford’s record is 6-8-2, 4-0-2 respectively.

    Away from home, the Hawks drew the first blood in the 31st minute. After been awarded a free kick 35 yards out on the left side of the field, the Hawks capitalized on the chance. Sarah Flowers’ free kick created a short moment of confusion inside the six-yard box as Marisa Viola lost control of the ball. Rachel Richards ran into the bouncing ball and slipped a shot behind the Seawolves defense. Though the shot didn’t have much power, it just happened that the Stony Brook players were out off their position and were unable to stop the goal from going into the net. Sometimes luck counts in soccer.

    The Seawolves evened the scoreboard at one apiece in the 86th minute. They were awarded a free kick 30 yards out at a position similar to where the Hawks scored earlier. Brooke Barbuto’s free kick swung toward the far post and connected with Kristin Mishrell, who passed the ball to Tiffany Fasullo who was unmarked in front of the goal. Fasullo didn’t take time to ask questions and put the goal away to force overtime.

    The Seawolves almost got the audience out of their seats two minutes into the overtime. Off a counter-attack, Brooke Barbuto passed the ball to a marching Kate Collins right down the middle. One-on-one against the Hawks goalkeeper, Kate’s initial shot was blocked and the goalkeeper filed her second chance from close range.

    Currently ranked in seventh place, the Seawolves need at least a win to get them into the play offs. They will play against in-state rival Albany in an away game next Thursday, October 19. The game will kick off at 3:00 p.m.
