Taryn Ohlmiller scored four goals and added three assists to lead the Stony Brook University women’s lacrosse team to a 14-8 victory over Towson on Friday, May 14, in the opening round of the NCAA Division I championship tournament at LaValle Stadium.
The Seawolves advanced to the next round and will host Rutgers at noon Sunday, May 16.
Ohlmiller’s seven points were the second-most in program history for an NCAA tournament game, one off the mark set by Courtney Murphy in 2018. Ally Kennedy added three goals and two assists and Kaeli Huff had a hat trick as well to pace the Stony Brook offense. Defensively, the Seawolves shut out Towson for more than 19 minutes spanning the two halves, scoring six times to grab a 9-2 lead.
“It’s great to win an NCAA Tournament game. They’re not easy to win, especially against a team we had played already,” said head coach Joe Spallina. “Towson has a lot of the same characteristics as us. We know every time we play these guys it’s a battle.”
