Faceoff: The Stony Brook men's lacrosse team will take on its third ranked opponent of the season with a non-conference game against Fairfield Saturday. The Seawolves and Stags were scheduled to play last year, but a storm that dumped more than 30 inches on Long Island forced the cancellation of the game.
Opponent: The Stags are coming off a 12-11 victory over then-No. 10 Yale. Senior Eric Warden, who scored the game-winning goal against the Bulldogs, leads Fairfield with 15 goals. Junior Tristan Sperry has 10 goals and nine assists. Junior Colin McLinden has recorded a team-best 11 assists. Senior Jack Murphy has started all five games in goal and has posted a .494 save percentage and a 9.17 goals against average.
Series: Stony Brook leads the all-time series, 5-2, in a matchup that dates back to 1989. The Stags have won the last two games, including the 2012 season opener, 13-10.
Up Next: Stony Brook will host Manhattan on Tuesday, March 18 at 6 p.m. The Seawolves have not faced the Jaspers since the 2002 season.
