Stony Brook Dominates Faceoffs, Beats Lafayette

from Stony Brook press release

STONY BROOK, N.Y. - Sophomore Brody Eastwood (Victoria, British Columbia) scored six goals and freshman Kyle Rowe (Vienna, Va.) won 18 of 21 draws to lead the Stony Brook men's lacrosse team to an 18-10 win over Lafayette Tuesday at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.

Eastwood registered four of his six goals in the second half for the Seawolves (1-1), who won their second straight over the Leopards. Eastwood has 10 goals in two games this season and 54 in 18 career contests.

Rowe, who was named America East Rookie of the Week on Monday after winning 17 of 23 draws against Marist, dominated again. Rowe added his first collegiate goal with 2:57 left in the second quarter that capped a 5-0 spurt for Stony Brook.

Sophomore Jake Sichenzia (Sayville, N.Y.) tied a career-high with three goals, and with a first-quarter assist set a career-high with four points.

Sophomore Challen Rogers (Coquitlam, British Columbia) tallied five points (2g, 3a) for a second straight game. Sophomore Matt Schultz (Smithtown, N.Y.) totaled a career-best three assists.

Lafayette (0-1) was led by Brian Bock's three goals.

Head Coach Jim Nagle's Reaction
"It's always good to get a win. We shared the ball on the offense and got the desired results. Brody Eastwood's success is a result of us sharing the ball. Rowe's been tremendous. It's been a real blessing to have him."

Turning Point
After Bock's goal tied the game at four midway through the second quarter, Stony Brook scored the game's next five goals and 10 of the next 11 to take a 14-5 lead.  Five different players scored during the initial 5-0 spurt that broke open the game. Eastwood and junior Mike Rooney (East Islip, N.Y.) each scored two goals in the second 5-0 run.
