Circle These Dates

  • 2/23 (at Brown): The past three years, both teams have combined for at least 29 goals so expect the over/under to be a large number. The Seawolves lost last year’s battle in a 30-goal affair thanks to five goals from Carson Song after beating the Bears 25-17 in 2017.
  • 2/26 (at Hofstra): Last year’s meeting of the two Long Island teams was one Stony Brook would like to forget. After the Seawolves made it a 6-2 game in the 3rd quarter, the Pride scored the final eight goals en route to a huge 14-2 win.
  • 3/9 (vs. Bryant): I’m interested in this matchup for the Seawolves as well as the Bulldogs. Bryant has been a consistently good NEC team for the past few years, while the Seawolves have had some good teams throughout as well. Bryant is known for their defense but they’re able to score some goals as well.
  • 3/23 (vs. UMBC): UMBC is capable of being a team in the America East Tournament with one of the more stingier defenses in the country. But the Retrievers have to score some goals as well. Stony Brook won last year’s meeting by a goal despite a three-goal run by UMBC early in the fourth quarter.
  • 4/20 (at Vermont): These two teams finished 2-3 in the America East, with the Seawolves earning the second seed after a double overtime victory over the Catamounts in the regular season with both goalies recording 16 saves. But Vermont came out on top in the rematch in the conference semifinals, thanks to the Catamounts scoring five of the six second half goals.
