Head Coach Jim Nagle's Reaction
"Tonight was what America East lacrosse is all about. Both teams fought through adversity. I feel like we've improved tremendously, and as I told the team after the game, we've got a lot of lacrosse left to play."

Turning Point
UMBC (5-4, 1-0) started with the first possession in overtime. After Stony Brook (4-6, 0-1) regained the ball, the Retrievers were flagged for two penalties. Rooney's shot was saved by Gordon and the subsequent clear attempt was successful. Johnstone made two saves on shots by Jack Gannon, but Young scored to end the game.
