Football Falls in Season Opener

A late Stony Brook rally fell just short on Saturday, when the Seawolves travelled to take on Hofstra at James H. Shuart Stadium, falling to the Pride, 17-10.

The game-winning score came in the fourth quarter, when Hofstra quarterback Joe Sidaras was stripped of the football in an attempt to score on third-and-goal, but the ball fell to left tackle Brian Frederick (Dracut, Mass.) who was credited with the touchdown.

In front of a large contingent of red-clad Stony Brooks fans, the Seawolves drew within one score with four minutes to go in the game, when sophomore quarterback Michael Coulter (Yorba Linda, Calif.) capped an 82-yard drive by finding senior wideout Stephan Towns (San Diego, Calif.) in the back right corner of the end zone. Coulter threw for 188 yards, with one touchdown and an interception,in his first start for Stony Brook.

Stony Brook’s rushing duo of Eddie Gowins (Bellport, N.Y.) and Conte Cuttino (Uniondale, N.Y.) rushed for a combined 66 yards.

The Seawolves defense was led by junior Stephen Schwicke (East Patchogue, N.Y.), who recorded a career-high 13 tackles.

Stony Brook’s next game is on Saturday, Sept. 12, when they travel to meet the Colgate Red Raiders (1-0).
