#Seawolves drop overtime heartbreaker to UMBC
Oct. 17, 2013
Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook women's soccer team (8-5-1, 3-2-0 America East) dropped its first home game of the year Thursday with a 2-1 overtime loss to UMBC. The Seawolves scored their only goal of the game in the 31st minute on a UMBC own goal following a free kick by sophomore Stella Norman (Lakewood, Colo.).
Head Coach Sue Ryan's Reaction
"I thought we played well in the first half, but we couldn't put two halves together. We couldn't find our rhythm in the second half and that really cost us, especially after they scored. We got flustered and started just kicking the ball away and not really staying with our gameplan. Obviously we want to get three points whenever we can, but we can learn something whether we win or lose, and we need to take the challenges we faced today and use them to fuel us going forward."
Stony Brook got on the board first when Norman lofted a free kick into the box that glanced off the head of a UMBC defender and into the net at the 30:28 mark.
The Numbers Game
Both teams had 22 shots in the match.
