Scouting Stony Brook
The Seawolves welcome Quinnipiac to Stony Brook amidst a four-game unbeaten streak (3-0-1) dating back to Sept. 12. This streak comes directly after Stony Brook endured a tough four-game losing streak. The Seawolves last played on Sept. 24 against Harvard and tied the Crimson, 1-1. Stony Brook's potent offense (14 goals in nine games played) is led by sophomore forward Berian Gobeil (three goals, one assist) and sophomore midfielder Fernandes Leonardo (three goals). Quinnipiac will not focus on these two players alone, as nine different Seawolves have registered at least one point on the season. Sophomore goalkeeper Stefan Manz (4-2-1) leads the Seawolves defensively, as he has allowed just four goals in the team's last four games.
All-Time against the Seawolves
Sunday's non-conference game will be the third time the two squads have faced each other. Quinnipiac is 1-0-1 all time against Stony Brook. The last meeting between the two teams was on Sept. 23, 2009 in which the two teams tied 1-1.
Last Time Out
Quinnipiac tied Yale, 0-0, on Sept. 21 on its home field in Hamden, Conn. The Bobcats were the aggressors through most of the contest, as they registered 17 shots compared to Yale's nine.
Lavallee Earns Clean Sheet
Sophomore goalkeeper Josh Lavallee (Upland, Calif.) picked up his first shutout of the season in his second start for the Bobcats. In his two starts, Lavallee has allowed one goal while making eight saves for a .889 save percentage. Lavallee comes to Quinnipiac after he played his freshman season for the University of Dayton Flyers where he compiled a 5-1-1 record. He led the team in both save percentage (.837) and goals against average (0.94).
Conference Play Begins
Quinnipiac returns home on Friday, Oct. 1 at 3 p.m. to play its first conference game of the year against Monmouth in a rematch of the 2009 Northeast Conference Championship game. The Bobcats also host NEC conference opponent Mount St. Mary's on Sunday, Sept. 3. at 12 p.m.
