Women’s soccer earns dominating win over Vermont

It was Stony Brook domination from the start of the game, and the momentum didn’t stop until the end as the Seawolves (3-9-2, 2-1-1) beat the visiting Vermont Catamounts (2-9-0, 1-3-0) , 3-0, at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on Thursday night.

With the win, the Seawolves move into second place in the America East behind only undefeated Boston.

The Seawolves have struggled this season to come up with wins, but conference play has proven a different story.  “We are really trying to put that behind us and move forward, Stony Brook head coach Sue Ryan said. “They are an extremely coachable group and they are trying to get better every game.”

The first goal was scored by sophomore Taryn Schoenbeck (Newark, Del.) in the 20th minute of the game. The goal was assisted by junior Dominique Adamo (Ramsey, N.J.) who has proven herself to be a leader on the team game after game. Adamo finished the game with six shots, which was only two less than Vermont’s entire team, which finished with eight. In total, the Seawolves had 27 shots.

The second goal for the Seawolvse came in the 55th minute when Schoenbeck passed to Adamo who then rocketed a shot into the back of the net.

The final goal of the game was unassisted and scored by freshman Larissa Nysch (Dresher, Pa.).

Vermont had some opportunities in the game, but freshman goalkeeper Chelsea Morales (Temecula, Calif.) secured the win with six excellent saves.

The mood during the game was very upbeat and the Seawolves proved that domination can definitely come naturally. Adamo and Schoenbeck were the stars of the game, both having assisted each other for goals. “We both have speed, we both know we can safely pass ahead to one another,” Adamo said of her connection with Schoenbeck. The two girls finished with a combined ten shots, two goals, and two assists.

In preparation for the next away game against UMBC, Coach Ryan stated that, “We need to keep having an attacking mentality and clean up how many times we’re offsides.” Seawolves kick-off at UMBC at 1:00 PM.
