No. 15t/13 #Seawolves fall to No. 7/5 Florida
March 1, 2014
Stony Brook, N.Y. – Despite a game-high four draw controls from freshman midfielder Kristin Yevoli and solid first-half defense, the No. 15t/13 Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team fell to No. 7/5 Florida, 14-1, Saturday afternoon at LaValle Stadium.
Senior goalie Frankie Caridi made six stops for Stony Brook (3-2).
Shannon Gilroy tallied a hat trick and six helpers for Florida (5-1).
"I thought at times we showed our immaturity offensively with four freshmen starting. I think we're a work in progress offensively. We'll get better from this. It's disappointing. Defensively, I thought we got tired at times. I think a lot of that stems from us not getting to the cage offensively. We feel like we'll mature offensively as the year goes on. We'll get better from this and we'll be ready to play Rutgers next weekend."
--Head Coach Joe Spallina
The first half began as a defensive battle. Devon Schneider scored for Florida at 23:02, but Michelle Rubino put away a free position shot to even the score at 1-1 with 19:49 on the clock. The two sides remained scoreless for nearly 14 minutes thereafter until Sammi Burgess scored a goal at the 5:57 mark to begin a 4-0 Gators run to end the first half.
