Feb. 25, 2018
STONY BROOK, N.Y.— The Denver women’s lacrosse team suffered its first loss of the season after falling to No. 2 Stony Brook, 16-3, Sunday at LaValle Stadium.
After the Seawolves broke the game open with an early goal, the Pioneers tied it at one, but from then on, it was all Stony Brook.
Stony Brook looked every bit the No. 2 team in the country, as they held the advantage in almost every statistical category. They had a 30-14 edge in shots, 13-8 in draw controls, 18-11 in ground balls, 5-2 in saves and a 6-3 advantage in free-position shots, while also being a perfect 16-for-16 in clears. The Pioneers tied the Seawolves in caused turnovers with six apiece.
For the first time this season, Denver didn’t score first as Stony Brook opened the game with a goal 1:03 into the game (28:57). It took some time for the Pioneers to record a shot, but on their second shot of the game, Eliza Radochonski scored the first goal of the game for the Crimson and Gold, and her seventh of the season, off of a Kendra Lanuza feed with 21:26 on the scoreboard to even the score at one. The freshman has scored in every game this season, and leads the team in points with 11.
The tie didn’t last long, as the Seawolves’ Kylie Ohlmiller gave the home team the lead on a free-position goal (20:35). Stony Brook added another goal at the 17:34 mark of the first half to take a two-goal lead.
The Seawolves expanded the lead to 4-1 with just a little over 10 minutes remaining in the half, which was the largest deficit the Pioneers faced in the season. The Seawolves made it four-straight goals with a goal at the nine minute mark.
