Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook women's soccer team (4-1-1) scored twice in the final 18 minutes on Sunday to top Siena by a 3-1 score at LaValle Stadium. Sophomore Danielle Fuller (Staten Island, N.Y.), freshman Leah Yurko (Cumberland, Md.) and freshman Lindsay Hutchinson (Millersville, Pa.) each scored their first collegiate goals in the win.
Coach Sue Ryan's Reaction
"I'm especially excited because we had a lot of firsts today. First and foremost, it was great to get Meagan Hallworth back in the lineup as this was her first game back from injury. Also, we had Hannah Groth get her first assist, and obviously three players scored their first goals today. For us to be successful, we have to rely on senior leadership, but if we can get our new players to give these kind of performances, it's a great sign for our program going forward."
• Fuller opened the scoring at 15:58 with a header from four yards out off a cross by sophomore Stella Norman (Lakewood, Colo.) on the right wing.
