SETTING THE SCENE
Binghamton hits the road Saturday in search of their first conference win of the season. The Bearcats lost their conference opener last Saturday versus the high powered offense of Albany. The nation’s best offensive team defeated BU 21-8, receiving hat tricks from three players. Junior Michael Antinozzi netted a team-high three goals and Brandon Planck added two goals in the loss. Binghamton looks for their first win over Stony Brook since 2005, which coincidentally took place on the road.

The Seawolves thumped Vermont, 19-10, in their conference opener March 30. Freshman Brody Eastwood scored a career-high five goals and senior Jeff Tundo added six points (3G, 3A) against the Catamonts. Freshman Dan Shaughnessy improved to 5-3 in net this season making 14 saves on the afternoon. Stony Brook is second in the conference in most offensive categories, including goals per game (10.60), points per game (16.90) and shot percentage (.332). Eastwood and Tundo are tied for the team lead in goals with 24.

DEFENSE LOOKS TO BOUNCE BACK
Despite allowing the most goals in a game since 2002 on Saturday, Binghamton still carries the best statistical defensive unit in the America East. The Bearcats give up a conference-low 9.89 goals per game and have held opponents to single digits in goals five times this spring. Junior goalie Max Schefler continues to rank first in GAA (9.08), saves per game (12.56) and save percentage (.598).

ANTINOZZI MAKING HIS MARK
With three goals Saturday, junior midfielder Michael Antinozzi moved past former standout and assistant coach Rob Williams to fourth place on the all-time goals scored list with 60. Since 2012, he has recorded nine hat tricks and is just one behind Matt Springer for the program lead. In two years and change he has accumulated 82 career points (tied with three others at fifth place). Current teammate Tyler Perrelle holds the record in that category with 103 points.
