April 26, 2005
The Game Story:
Junior attack Chris Unterstein (pictured) recorded two goals and three assists and Athan Iannucci, Tom Brewer and Rob Bonaguro each scored twice to lead the Hofstra Pride to a 13-5 victory over #17 Stony Brook Tuesday night at Shuart Stadium. The Pride improve to 7-7 on the season while the Seawolves, who saw their four-game winning streak come to an end, fell to 9-4.

The Pride opened the scoring 3:22 into the contest as sophomore midfielder Bill Peters scored his first college goal off a pass from Chris Unterstein. But SBU middie Sean Chamberlain scored the first of his two goals two minutes later, on the man-up off a pass from Adam Marksberry. Unterstein repaid the favor with 6:38 to play in the first with his 12th goal of the year, off a pass from Iannucci on the man-up, to put the Pride ahead 2-1 after one.

Hofstra sophomore Tom Brewer scored the first of his two goals on the night on the run 3:07 into the second quarter. It was Brewer’s third goal of the season. Junior Rob Bonaguro tallied his 12th of the year just 1:12 later to boost the Pride lead to 4-1. But Stony Brook came right back and scored twice in 11 seconds to close to within 4-3. First, freshman middie Owen Adams tallied his second goal of the season, from 13 yards out, beating Hofstra goalie Matt Southard (9 saves). Then Chamberlain posted his 18th of the season from Marksberry 11 seconds later to bring the Seawolves back to within one goal.

Hofstra then scored the next three goals as Unterstein scored his second of the game and 13th of the season on a shot from five yards out at the 5:04 mark, then junior Ryan Lucas took a pass from Unterstein in front of the cage 14 seconds later for his 13th goal of the season, and junior John Orsen tallied his sixth goal of the year off an Unterstein pass with 1:34 to play in the half for a 7-3 advantage.

Stony Brook sophomore middie Ryan Maehr brought the Seawolves back with consecutive man-up goals, off passes from Jason Cappadoro, to close to 7-5. Maehr scored from seven yards out with 1:05 to play in the half, and then scored his second man-up goal of the game and his 14th overall on the season, 3:39 into the third quarter.

But it was all Hofstra from that point as the Pride scored six unanswered goals with Brewer and Bonaguro each getting their second goals of the game and Iannucci adding two goals to boost his team-leading total to 23 as the Pride cruised to the 13-5 victory. The 13 goals were the most allowed by Stony Brook this season while the five goals were the fewest scored in a game by the Seawolves.

The Pride outshot Stony Brook 42-22 and Hofstra won the battle on the ground as well, picking up 37 ground balls to the Seawolves 32. Stony Brook freshman Matt Ural recorded seven saves in the first thirty minutes while sophomore Brendan Callahan, making his return to action since a knee injury against Army on April 5, posted nine saves in 27 minutes. Hofstra junior goalie Matt Southard posted nine saves in 59 minutes in his first start since March 29.
