slow start costly in 9-4 loss to Stony Brook
STONY BROOK, N.Y. - Stony Brook (1-2, 1-0 AE) scored the game's first seven goals and defeated Binghamton (1-3, 0-1 AE) 9-4 in the America East opener for both teams on Wednesday.
The Bearcats came out sluggish, and Stony Brook capitalized with six first-half goals. Binghamton trailed 7-0 before BU tallied twice in a 16-second span late in the third period. Freshman Joe Conner (Ijamsville, Md./Urbana) put the Bearcats on the board with an unassisted man-up goal with 1:35 left in the period. Freshman Scott Mitchell (Smithtown, N.Y./Hauppauge) scored 16 seconds later off the first of two assists by first-year player Brian Morgan (Littleton, Col./Heritage). With 10:37 remaining in the game, freshman attack Phil Cavallo (Cedarhurst, N.Y./Lawrence) took a pass from Morgan and tallied his team-high eighth goal of the season, cutting BU's deficit to 7-3. The Seawolves countered, however, with two goals in four minutes to put the game away. Senior Tyler Moore (Guilderland, N.Y.) added a late goal for Binghamton, which was outshot, 31-25.
"We came out flat, and that cost us," head coach Ed Stephenson said.
Binghamton converted only one of 13 extra-man opportunities, and won just three of 15 face-offs.
The Bearcats are next scheduled to host Quinnipiac at 1 p.m. on March 22.
