A one-sided affair that shouldn’t have been as close as it was, featuring only five total shots from Stony Brook compared to New Hampshire’s (UNH) astounding 25 total shots, left the Seawolves lucky to walk out having only lost by one goal on Friday, Oct. 4 in Durham, New Hampshire.
Two goals early in the first half — separated by less than three minutes — would end up being all the Stony Brook men’s soccer team needed to capture a win. Coming off a victory versus Siena, the Seawolves, led by senior striker Jarred Dass, captured another 2-1 victory on Wednesday, Sept. 18 in the Battle of Long Island versus the Hofstra University Pride.
The six goals scored by the Seawolves are the most the team has ever produced under head coach Ryan Anatol, and their most since 1995, where the team scored 13 in a game against Old Westbury on Sept. 13.
Barddal’s goal put the Catamounts ahead with 12 seconds left in the first period, a score that proved to be the winning goal in Vermont’s 2-1 victory over Stony Brook Men’s Soccer on Saturday, Oct. 20.
