SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The Stony Brook University women battled to their second consecutive extratime match, but fell to the No. 20 University of Notre Dame, 1-0, Thursday night.
Kelly Moss scored 39 seconds into extratime, heading in a Jenna Winebrenner cross from the left flank.
The Seawolves dropped to 1-2 while the Irish rose to 3-0.
“We are disappointed in the result, but kudos to Notre Dame on a well-executed sequence to win the game,” Stony Brook head coach Brendan Faherty said. “Our group worked really hard defensively, but also looked dangerous on the counter and on restarts.
“Over the course of the first three games, we have shown great character with our ability to compete, but now we need to turn that into wins. We have another chance on Sunday and I believe our group will be hungry to get a positive result at Seton Hall.”
Sophomore Sofia Manner (Helsinki, Finland) had another strong performance in goal, starting with a diving save in the 14th minute. Manner got a hand on a shot to the left side of the goal and deflected the ball out of bounds.
In the 21st minute, sophomore Kimmy Chavkin (Franklin, N.J.) served a corner into the box to senior Allyson Baner (Farmingdale, N.Y.), who sent a header toward the goal, but a perfectly placed Irish defender made the stop on the goal line.
Manner came up with another big stop in the 65th minute as she met an attacking Notre Dame player and got a foot on the attempt that deflected in the direction of Baner, who cleared it out for the Seawolves.
In the 67th minute, it seemed Notre Dame had scored after a header sailed into the open left side of the goal, but the Irish were flagged for being offsides and the goal was called back.
The Seawolves will remain on the road as they head to Seton Hall University on Sunday at 1 p.m.
