The Seawolves tacked on 14 points in the game’s final eight minutes, hitting eight of nine from the free-throw line to make up for a 20 percent mark from the field in the quarter. The team’s late surge ultimately fell short, however, and by the final buzzer Stony Brook had lost 48-40.
The Stony Brook hockey team was unable to secure a win at The Rinx in Hauppauge for the first time in over a year on Sunday, falling to Syracuse by a score of 4-2 in their first home loss since Oct. 30, 2016 in the same match-up.
After losing by a six-goal margin Friday night at LaHaye Ice Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, the Stony Brook hockey team powered back against the Liberty Flames for a 5-3 win and a split of the weekend set.
In the world of sports, nothing fuels a team quite like unexpected defeat. Stony Brook’s hockey team experienced just that last season when they fell to the Liberty University Flames in the Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League Championship, ending the Seawolves’ four-year conference title streak. With the 2017-18 season just around the corner, getting back to the top is on everyone’s mind.
