After two shutout losses this week that saw the team drop to 2-2 in-conference and its 11-game home win streak snapped, the Seawolves do not have a winning record in America East play for the first time since September 2017.
It was the first time in program history that Stony Brook had ever lost to Rhode Island after winning its first seven contests against the Rams. Dating back to 2019, the Seawolves are 2-11 in their last 13 games.
The Seawolves came out flat all-around in a 3-1 loss to the Hartford Hawks on Saturday, Oct. 2 at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium, as the offense could not get anything going against Hartford’s defense while their own defense could not stop Hartford’s offense.
With the goal-line stand, the Seawolves lost their first ever game in program history to Rhode Island. The 27-20 road overtime defeat on Oct. 2 handed Stony Brook its third consecutive loss, to another opponent that it had historically dominated.
Coming off a bye week, the 3-0 (1-0 CAA) Rams will be well-rested as they look to stay undefeated and earn their first win over Stony Brook in program history. The Seawolves are 7-0 all-time against Rhode Island, with an average margin of victory of 18.14 points in those games.
Coming off a loss to then-No. 4 Oregon, facing a winless Fordham team from the weaker Patriot League should have been a nice tune-up before diving into the heart of conference play. Instead, the Seawolves were stunned and lost.
The Stony Brook men’s soccer team ended up on the wrong end of a low-scoring affair on Saturday, Sept. 25, suffering a 1-0 road loss against the Binghamton Bearcats to drop its first conference match of the season.
Facing a winless Fordham Rams team at home and coming off a strong first-half performance last week at No. 3 Oregon, Stony Brook was embarrassed 31-14 by Fordham on Saturday, Sept. 25 at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.
