Cook registers stellar performance with a goal, two assists

Box Score

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- The Binghamton University men's lacrosse team dropped a 13-6 decision to No. 13 Stony Brook in an America East contest Saturday night from LaValle Stadium. The Bearcats (5-7, 1-2 AE) fall to 3-8 in the all-time series against the Seawolves (7-3, 3-0 AE).

Junior face-off specialist Chris Cook led the Bearcats with a stellar all-around performance. At the face-off X, Cook won 11 of 23 attempts and limited Stony Brook senior Adam Rand, who ranked fourth in the country in face-off win percentage, well below his season average of 65%. Offensively, Cook notched a career day as he scored a goal and assisted on a personal-best two helpers. He also matched Rand with a game-high seven ground balls.

Freshman Michael Antinozzi paced the Bearcat scoring attack with a pair of goals, tying a career-high set against Lehigh two weeks ago.

Stony Brook seniors Kevin Crowley and Jordan McBride each managed hat tricks to lead the Seawolves.

The Bearcats came out firing in the opening frame, matching Stony Brook in a high-scoring quarter that featured a combined eight goals. Senior Frank Donlon answered an early Stony Brook score with an unassisted tally at the 8:50 mark. In the ensuing face-off, Cook won the draw and streaked down the field for a goal seconds later to give the visiting squad a 2-1 advantage.

A potent Seawolves offense, which was ranked ninth nationally entering the contest, erupted for four consecutive goals during a four-minute span midway through the first quarter to take a 5-2 lead.

With 1:02 remaining in the opening quarter, Antinozzi fired home a score off the helper from sophomore Tyler Perrelle.

The host squad held BU scoreless for a critical stretch that lasted 30:41 and spanned the second quarter and the majority of the third. In the meantime, Stony Brook rattled off five consecutive goals to lead 10-3 with 47 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Eight seconds later, another face-off win led to a BU score as junior John Clark rifled home a goal off the feed from Cook.

The Bearcats used the face-off circle to its advantage once again to start the fourth quarter. Antinozzi registered his second goal of the contest with 14:54 remaining on a career-high second assist from Cook.

Following a pair of scores within a 30 second span from Stony Brook, senior David Raleigh set up a goal from freshman Brandon Planck, pulling the visiting squad within 12-6 with 7:21 to play.

The Seawolves added a goal at the four-minute mark and held BU scoreless over the final seven minutes to secure the victory.

Binghamton will close out the regular season on a two-game homestand. The Bearcats face Hartford next Saturday at 7 p.m.
