HANOVER, N.H. – The Stony Brook women dropped a 2-1 decision to Dartmouth College in non-conference play at Burnham Field Sunday.
The Seawolves fell to 2-1-0 while Dartmouth improved to 2-0-0.
Kaitlin Loughren scored the Seawolves’ lone goal – the first of her collegiate career – with less than four minutes remaining in the game.
“Dartmouth provided a different test for our group in regards to their formation and their athleticism. I thought both teams found success in the middle of the field, but Dartmouth was better in both 18’s,” Stony Brook coach Brendan Faherty said. “We have quite a few positives to take away from the game, but also areas where we can grow. We will regroup quickly as we have another tough test on Thursday against Boston College.”
Loughren’s goal came with 3:59 left in regulation. The junior fired a shot toward net from about 30 yards out, which hit the top bar and redirected over the goal line for the score. The junior has one goal and two assists in her time at Stony Brook.
Freshman goalkeeper Sofia Manner recorded four saves.
Stony Brook will return to LaValle Stadium to host Boston College Thursday at 7 p.m.
