No. 1 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse earned its 10th straight victory to begin the 2018 season on Tuesday night at LaValle Stadium, topping No. 23 Cornell by the final score of 19-4.
With the win, the No. 1 Seawolves (10-0, 3-0 AE) have now recorded six wins vs. nationally-ranked opponents so far this season.
“This was a game we had circled, a team we had played in the fall and we knew they were a quality opponent,” head coach Joe Spallina said.
“I thought Cornell was gritty and hard-nosed tonight,” Spallina added. “I knew they had our team’s full attention, and I felt that we were prepared and locked in for this one. I’m really proud of the way our group played again today, it was another great win.”
- Courtney Murphy (Shirley, N.Y.) and Ally Kennedy(North Babylon, N.Y.) led the way for the Seawolves’ offense, each scoring five times in the win. Kennedy’s five-goal performance marks a career-high, as she also added two assists and a team-best six draw controls.
- Murphy, the redshirt senior, now moves just three goals away from breaking the NCAA Division I career record set by Temple’s Gaul Cummings (289).
- Kylie Ohlmiller (Islip, N.Y.) added four goals and one assist for five points of her own. She now has 409 career points, needing just 37 more to break the NCAA career record set by Maryland’s Jen Adams (445). She also has 202 career assists, moving 23 away from the NCAA record set by Northwestern’s Hannah Nielsen (224).
