#Seawolves hold third annual Spring Soccer Festival
May 6, 2014
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Continuing to make an impact on the field and in the community, the Stony Brook men's soccer team recently hosted its third annual Spring Soccer Festival as the #Seawolves ran a youth clinic and then played a match against NJIT to end their spring season. The clinic was held for boys and girls, ages 6-13, and was taught by #Seawolves student-athletes and coaches.
In addition to the clinic and exhibition, other activities included face painting, a silent auction, a halftime ball toss competition, youth team games and an appearance from Wolfie.
The match against the Highlanders ended in a 1-1 draw, but the two teams agreed to participate in penalty kicks, where NJIT won, 3-2. Martin Giordano scored the lone goal of the day for Stony Brook, but the team had multiple opportunities to score, including a few shots off the crossbar.
Stony Brook, under fourth-year head coach Ryan Anatol, has become one of the premier collegiate soccer clubs in the Northeast Region. The #Seawolves return 12 letterwinners from last season's squad, including leading scorer Martin Giordano (2-6-10), and are seeking their fourth America East Championship title.
