Stony Brook Cruises Past Manhattan

from press release

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- The Stony Brook women's lacrosse team led from start to finish, putting up its most goals two seasons in an 18-6 victory over Manhattan Wednesday at LaValle Stadium.

Melissa Cook (Bay Shore, N.Y.) finished with a team-high four goals and now has eight for the season. Alyssa Cardillo (Farmingdale, N.Y.) finished with a team-high six points after one goal and five assists. The 18 goals were the most by Stony Brook since putting up 20 at Sacred Heart on March 11, 2009.

The Seawolves jumped out to a 3-0 lead within the game's first six minutes. Cardillo (Farmingdale, N.Y.) scored the first goal unassisted just 1:25 into the game. Then Cook (Bay Shore, N.Y.) added a free position goal, and Cardillo fed Victoria Cable (Oakton, Va.) for a goal three minutes later.

After Manhattan's Phelicia VanOverbeke put the Jaspers on the board with 11:42 left in the first, the Seawolves scored five of the next six goals, including two by Kaila Gottlick (Madison, Conn.). The Seawolves went into halftime leading 7-2.

The second half was all Stony Brook, scoring six unanswered goals between 25:57 and 19:14. Cable picked up a pair of goals, and Matte Scully (Huntington, N.Y.) scored twice in a span of 3:49. Cook's fourth goal of the game came at 19:14 and put the Seawolves on top 14-3.

Kerry Kresse (Setauket, N.Y.) finished off the Jaspers with three goals in the final eight minutes of the game.

In total, eight different Seawolves put the ball in the net, and 10 different players notched at least one point.

Stony Brook will return to action Sunday, Feb. 27 as it hosts Denver at LaValle Stadium at 12 p.m.
