Women’s soccer falls to Boston, 4-0

After defeating SUNY Albany 2-0 on Thursday, the Stony Brook women’s soccer team lost for the first time in conference play on Sunday, falling to the Boston University Terriers, 4-0.

The defeat snapped a three-game unbeaten streak for the Seawolves (2-8-2, 1-1-1). The Terriers remain unbeaten in America East play, improving to 8-5-0, 3-0-0 in the America East.

Boston University was only able to manage a single first half goal. Tiya Gallegos scored for the Terriers after 29 minutes, receiving a pass from Brittany Heist and tucking the ball into the lower right corner of the net to score the eventual game-winner.

In the second half, it took the Terriers another 12 minutes to add another goal.  It was Emma Clark’s third goal of the season for Boston.

The game was beyond all doubt  by the 67th minute as Boston’s leading goalscorer, Lisa Kevorkian,  scored on a pass from Clark.

Krista Minto scored agan for Boston to complete the rout, heading in a Jessica Luscinski corner kick.

Freshman Chelsea Morales (Temecula, Calif.) made nine saves in the game. That tied a season-high that Morales recorded against Albany on Wednesday.

The Seawolves only managed three shots.

On Thursday, the Seawolves beat rival Albany at Varsity Field in Albany.

Junior Colleen McKenna (Manorville, N.Y.) scored the game winning goal in the 22nd minute.

Freshman Tess Hagenlock (Bozeman, Montana) scored her first collegiate goal to clinch the game for Stony Brook.

Junior Dominique Adamo (Ramsey, N.J.) and freshman Caitlin Pfeiffer (Holland, N.Y.) recorded assists.

Stony Brook sits in a tie for third place in the America East, though Maine and New Hampshire, also tied for third, have a game in hand on the Seawolves.

Stony Brook will return home on Thursday, October 7, when the Seawolves take on the Vermont Catamounts at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.

The Catamounts are 2-10-0 overall and 1-2-0 in America East play.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
