Box Score

Boulder, Colo. - The Stony Brook women's soccer team (5-3-1) concluded its non-conference slate on Sunday with a 1-0 setback against Northern Colorado at the Omni Hotels Classic.

Head Coach Sue Ryan's Reaction

"This weekend was a very good experience for our team. We were able to play some good teams at a high altitude and I thought we competed and handled adversity well, especially in the second half Friday and throughout the game today. We really battled hard, and while we're not happy with the results, we're pleased with the effort we put forth."
