Despite a defensive effort for the ages and a one-goal lead during the third quarter, the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team fell 8-5 to the top-seeded University of North Carolina (UNC) Tar Heels in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals on Thursday.
By walloping the Albany Great Danes 16-4 in the 2022 regular season finale as expected, Stony Brook clinched its ninth consecutive America East regular season title and its 60th straight win over an America East opponent.
Returning home after a road trip to Brown, Stony Brook repeated its offensive success with yet another blowout victory. The Seawolves ran away with a 14-4 win over the Vermont Catamounts in their conference opener on March 26.
On Thursday, the Brown Bears scored 22 goals against Central Connecticut — the most they have scored in a single game this season. But when the Seawolves came to town on Tuesday, March 22, the Bears couldn’t score more than three.
