T.J. Moriarty threw for 231 yards and a touchdown and Ken Lockhart rushed for two scores as the Stony Brook football team cruised to a 31-3 victory over Siena in the Seawolves' season opener on Saturday night at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium. Stony Brook, which remained undefeated at LaValle Stadium, moved to 1-0 on the season, while the Saints fell to 0-2.

Stony Brook broke the game open in the second quarter, scoring 21 unanswered points to take a 24-0 lead into the break. Lockhart went in for a touchdown from two yards out at 13:36 and less than three minutes later fell on his own fumble in the Siena end zone for a one-yard touchdown plunge.
With the Seawolves up 17-0, Moriarty directed a seven-play, 53-yard drive that culminated when he scampered six yards for a score at the 2:46 mark.
