Curtis Copenhaver may very well be one of the team’s most valuable players in 2022. The Seawolves could have found themselves in deep trouble after starting goalkeeper Edmond Kaiser went down with an injury following the season opener.
The Seawolves returned home to Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium to host the Manhattan Jaspers on Thursday, Sept. 15. Stony Brook played a much better game on both ends of the field, leading them to a 1-1 tie against the Jaspers.
An infusion of youth has turned this entire team around, as the Seawolves appear reborn in the early stretch of their 2022 season. Still playing in the non-conference part of their schedule, Stony Brook has gotten off to a 3-2 start.
Coming off of a very promising 2021 season, the Stony Brook men’s soccer team will look to continue to trend upwards in 2022. However, they may find that task difficult given the circumstances surrounding this year’s team.
