MEN'S LACROSSE FALLS, 12-6 TO STONY BROOK, IN AMERICA EAST SEMI-FINALS
The Seawolves took control late midway through the second quarter. With the score tied at 4-all, Stony Brook attackman Sean Chamberlain scored the go-ahead goal with 11:31 remaining in the quarter. Chamberlain, who like Cappadoro scored three goals, scored an unassisted goal at the 6:43 mark, and Cappadoro closed the half with a man-up goal with just 8 seconds left in the half.
UMBC would go scoreless for 23:20 as Stony Brook added a goal midway through the third quarter before UMBC’s Joe Cahill brought the Retrievers to within 8-5 with 4:07 to play in the stanza. But Stony Brook’s Michael Poch won the next face-off, raced down the field and scored just 7 seconds later to restore the four-goal Stony Brook advantage.
Junior midfielder Andy Gallagher gave the #1-seeded Retrievers some hope when he opened the fourth quarter with a goal just 1:07 into the frame to trim the deficit to 9-6. But Chamberlain equalized that score 2:23 later and Cappadoro scored twice in empty nets in the final 2:22 as the Retrievers tried in vain to rally.
