Last weekend, your 17th ranked Stony Brook University Seawolves played host to league rival Robert Morris University, and came away with two important victories in the team’s final home games of the season.
On Saturday, the Seawolves honored its seven seniors in a pre-game ceremony, but fell behind by two goals in the game’s opening period.
In the second period, Stony Brook got back-to-back goals by John Jennings and Josh Brooks to knot the game at three heading into the third, and looked poised to take the lead.
Midway through the third period, Nick Barbera scored to give the Seawolves a 4-3 lead, and the team never looked back, as Sean Collins added an insurance goal to put the game out of reach for the visiting Colonials.
Senior goaltender Chris Hausel had a number of strong saves, and was perfect in net after Robert Morris’ three early goals.
On Sunday, the Seawolves returned to the Rinx, looking to complete the weekend sweep, but fell behind by a goal early in the second period.
Once again, the Seawolves rallied, as defenseman Pat Foster tied the game at two, and Nick Barbera gave the team the lead later in the period.
In the third, with the game tied at four, senior Bryan Elfant notched two goals to give Stony Brook an insurmountable lead, and freshman netminder Daniel Snyder provided late game heroics between the pipes to give Stony Brook its second win of the weekend by a score of 6-5.
This weekend, the Seawolves head north to finish out the season against the 19th ranked Rams from the University of Rhode Island for a two-game series that could determine whether Stony Brook receives its 13th consecutive invitation to the ACHA’s national tournament.
