HAPPAUGE, NY (Saturday, October 2, 2010) The Midshipmen stumbled early in their first road game of the year, losing to the Stony Brook Seawolves 9-2.
In an uncharacteristically shaky start, the Mids dug themselves into a deep hole which they were never able to overcome. Stony Brook burst out of the gate, scoring on a two-on-one break seven seconds into the game. The Seawolves added two more goals in the next minute and a half and the Mids were unable to rebound from the early deficit.
There were some notable bright spots to the game, in which Navy brought a speed and intensity that matched Stony Brook’s. Despite the early set backs, the Midshipmen never gave up, fighting hard for the entire sixty minutes. The physical contest led to a number of penalties and special teams situations. In the end, Navy evened up the on-ice play substantially from the start of the game, but the early mistakes proved to be too difficult to overcome.
The Mids look to get back on track next weekend when they travel to Boston , MA for two non-conference games. On Saturday, they play Harvard University's ACHA team at Governor's Academy at 5PM before facing Bridgewater State College on Sunday at 3PM.
