The Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team made it into the America East finals with a 25-13 win against fourth-seeded UMBC on May 7 at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.
Aiming for their eighth straight conference title, the top-seeded Seawolves will host second-seeded UAlbany on Saturday, May 8, at 1 pm.
Stony Brook’s goal output was the most ever in an America East playoff game, surpassing the Seawolves’ 22 in the finals against UAlbany in 2018.
Stony Brook now has won 53 straight games against America East competition.
Coach Joe Spallina said postgame that he had hoped to rest his starters for much of Thursday’s game in preparation for the finals. But the early dogfight had its value.
