With Sunday’s win, Stony Brook advances to its first America East Conference final since 2013. This also marks the first time in America East Conference history that a No. 5-ranked team has advanced to the final since the conference moved to a six-team playoff format in 2001.
The No. 5-seeded Stony Brook women’s soccer team took on the No. 4-seeded Hawks in the first round of the America East Conference championships, putting on a 90-minute display of dominance en route to shutting out the Hawks 2-0 Thursday evening.
