Oct. 14, 2012
Baltimore, Md. - Senior Sa'sha Kershaw converted a penalty kick in the 66th minute to help the Stony Brook women's soccer team earn a 1-1 draw at UMBC on Sunday in Baltimore, Md. The Seawolves (8-5-3) now have seven points in the conference standings (2-3-1) with two matches remaining in the regular season.
"We're disappointed that we didnt get a win today, but I'm proud of the team for its resiliency after going behind a goal and also down a player. We were able to come back and really take it to them in the second half and in both overtimes. It's bittersweet, but now the next game is the only thing that matters."
--Head coach Sue Ryan
