Fly Raven Fly
After missing the entire 2013 season, Edwards appears to have regained the form that made her an America East All-Rookie selection in 2012. Her two goals in Thursday’s loss marked the first multi-goal game of her career and accounted for goals number six and seven of her career. Her return should fill the void left by Larissa Nysch’s departure, Stony Brook’s leading scorer last year with 11 goals.
