The Stony Brook men’s soccer team drew even in their match against the Lafayette Leopards on Tuesday, finishing with a final score of 0-0 after two overtime periods. The draw marks the second for each school this season.
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.
Incredible, amazing, legendary, life-changing. Those are all words that can be used to describe the six former Stony Brook University greats who were inducted into the Stony Brook Athletics Rita and Kurt Eppenstein Hall of Fame.
Seeing wide open green grass in front of him in transition, senior defenseman Stephen Turnbull sprinted and made a booming pass intended for senior striker Jarred Dass that was blocked on a slide by a Fordham defender into his own goal. This proved to be the difference in a 1-0 win for the Stony Brook men’s soccer team.
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.
