Stony Brook, N.Y. - SEAWOLVES FALL TWICE: The Seawolves began the week against local rival Hofstra on Wednesday. Playing in a driving rainstorm, the two teams traded goals over the first 65 minutes. Hofstra got on the board early, but Lauren Canino got the Seawolves even in the 35th minute. Hofstra took the lead 2-1 before halftime but Lori Kotzen came back to knot the game at two midway through the second half. With just over 13 minutes remaining, the Pride scored twice in a span of :45 seconds to take a 4-2 lead. After Hofstra's fourth goal, it took only :11 seconds for Kerri McCabe to slice the lead to 4-3. McCabe took the ball off the kickoff and blasted a left-footed shot from 35 yards out that found the upper corner of the goal. On Sunday, SB lost another tightly fought contest with St. John's. Canino scored first to put the Seawolves up 1-0 but the Red Storm came back for two goals of their own to take a 2-1 lead into the break. SJU built the lead to 3-1 before McCabe tallied to get the SB within 3-2. St. John's added a goal with :19 left after Stony Brook pushed forward to try and get the game even at four.

SEAWOLVES VERSUS COLUMBIA: Stony Brook holds an 8-6-1 edge over Columbia. The Lions have won the last two meetings.

LAUREN IS SCORIN': Freshman Lauren Canino found her way into the scoring column last week. A standout forward from Lee's Summit, Mo., Canino played in the back for most of the season due to injuries to key defenders. She moved to the forward spot three weeks ago and scored her first collegiate goal last Wednesday against Hofstra. She came right back on Sunday to tally again on a terrific volley early in the first half. Her efforts earned her Stony Brook Athlete of the Week honors.

LISA PITCHES IN: Lisa Mariano has begun to make her presence felt after returning from injury last week. She assisted on both goals in Sunday's loss to St. John's.

ENGINE, ENGINE NUMBER NINE . . . :Junior Kerri McCabe is winding down a terrific season for Stony Brook. McCabe, who wears number nine, now has a team leading 12 goals and six assists on the year after scoring twice last week. She has far surpassed previous season highs in goals (4) and assists (3) and leads the team in game-winning goals with four.
