The 52nd straight America East win for the No. 6-ranked SBU women’s lacrosse team was a sweet one. One of the most talented senior classes in Stony Brook history wrapped up their final regular season with a dominating 18-7 win over UMBC on Saturday.
On the heels of a confidence-inspiring win over No. 15 USC, the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team took to the Carrier Dome to play the Syracuse Orange on Saturday, Feb. 27, and lost by a final score of 16-6.
“We were having a great year,” head coach Joe Spallina said in an interview with The Statesman. “We were ranked really high. We had beaten a top five team on the road and we had the carpet pulled out from under us, just like everybody else,”
Rebounding from last week’s loss to No. 1 North Carolina, the No. 6-ranked Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team put together a clinic as they defeated the Boston University Terriers by a final score of 20-10 on Sunday, Feb. 21.
Boston scored four unanswered goals, including the game-winner, with 1:42 left in overtime, to hand Stony Brook its first loss of the season and knock the Seawolves out of the NCAA tournament by a 12-11 final score.
The Seawolves used an 11-2 run that spanned through the end of the first half and midway through the second half to launch themselves ahead of the Great Danes and went on to win their sixth straight America East Championship by a 22-14 final score at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.
