Loudonville, N.Y. - Redshirt sophomore Raven Edwards (West Orange, N.J.) notched her first career multi-goal game but it wasn't enough as the #Seawolves fell on the road to Siena by a count of 3-2.  

Ryan's Reaction

"We dug a hole for ourselves and couldn't recover from it," said Ryan. "It's disappointing because the goals they scored were breakdowns on our end. We showed good resiliency to score an early goal in the second half but ultimately the margin was too great to make up"

Goal Recaps

  • Edwards got the #Seawolves rolling in the 8th minute when she took advantage of an errant Siena goal kick, waltzing in alone and burying for the 1-0 lead.
  • Siena equalized in the 18th minute, their first goal of the year, coming off the foot of Madison Vazquez.
  • The Saints took the lead in the 43rd minute when Maria Jones pounced on a loose ball after redshirt senior Ashley Castanio couldn't corral a cross, depositing it into the open goal.
  • Siena's third goal stemmed from a Stony Brook turnover. Michelle Yanniello took advantage of the miscue by heading home a cross.
  • Edwards second of the match gave Stony Brook life. The forward ran onto the end of a through ball from junior Tessa Devereaux (Fayettevill, N.Y.) and slotted home the finish to pull the Seawolves within one but that would be the last goal they would manage.
Game Notes

  • Stony Brook outshot Siena 16-10 and held a 12-4 advantage in shots on goal.
  • Edwards led the Seawolves with three shots, all of which found their way on target
  • Devereaux's assist was the tenth of her career, placing her only two shy of the school's all-time top 10.
  • The Seawolves held Siena to just three shots the entire second half but one of them resulted in a goal.

Up Next


The Seawoles will look to rebound at Wagner on Sunday at 1 p.m. The two sides met last year with Stony Brook prevailing in a tight one, 2-1.
