With his back turned towards the net, midfielder Trevor Harrison handed the Stony Brook men’s soccer team sole possession of first place in the Coastal Athletic Association (CAA). A battle of top-tier offenses in the CAA played out as advertised on Saturday.
Coming into this past season, Stony Brook had significant holes to fill. Losses in leadership, talent and production from the 2021 team led to low expectations from the outside world. Being newcomers in a stronger conference did not help matters, either.
The Seawolves hosted the Northeastern Huskies on Saturday to wrap up their four-game homestand at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. The team was unable to generate any offense against the Huskies, as they were shutout 1-0.
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.
