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.

Ally Kennedy finished with seven goals, matching an America East tournament record and pulling even with  Kylie Ohlmiller, who was in attendance, for second in program history at 252.

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.
