October 16, 2018

SBU Liotine

After an outstanding performance in Stony Brook University’s win on Saturday, Don Liotine ’13 was named the CAA Conference Offensive Player of the Week. Here is the press release from the CAA:

Liotine rushed for a season-high 163 yards on 32 carries in Stony Brook’s 35-7 win at New Hampshire. With backfield mate Jordan Gowins out, the senior shouldered the load with all but five of the Seawolves’ rushing attempts and averaged 5.1 yards per carry. It was Liotine’s fourth 100-yard rushing performance in the past six games.

Liotine was twice named the CAA Rookie of the Week in 2015 and was named the CAA Special Teams Player of the Week last season, but this is his first Offensive Player of the Week nod.

On Friday afternoon the girls’ soccer team earned a 6-1 non-league victory over Avenues at Chelsea Park in Manhattan.

Donna Sanders continued her offensive assault with five goals, her third game of the season of at least five scores. Those three games are also the three highest individual scoring performances in program history. The senior tucked away two in the first half courtesy of assists from Madison Logan and Beth Felix, then tallied three more in the second half to put the game away. Alyssa Martinez also added a second half score. Felix finished with three assists while Logan added two and Luli Vusanjin one. Sarah Hull made 3 stops in goal.

The Bears are back in action tomorrow afternoon in a home league match-up with league-leader Portledge. A win would give the Bears a share of the East Division crown.

The ’97 Bears

On this day 21 years ago, the boys’ soccer team clipped Eastport, 2-1, in a key league match-up. Here is the account of the game from Newsday:

Alex Cunningham scored with 19:34 left in the second half to break a 1-1 tie and send Stony Brook past Eastport, 2-1, yesterday in a pivotal League VII boys soccer game. The win moved Stony Brook (7-3) into control of the final playoff spot with two games remaining, according to Bears coach David Church. Dave Schmidt tied the game at 1 when he scored three minutes into the second half for Eastport (5-6). James Miaritis gave the Bears a 1-0 lead on his goal with 15 minutes remaining in the first half. Justin Chase (eight saves) stopped a critical penalty shot by Schmidt with 10 seconds remaining in the first half, and the Bears still leading, 1-0. Eric Arizmendi made 10 saves for Eastport. “It was a great game,” Church said. “Every 50-50 ball was contested. Both teams knew what was at stake. With that, I thought both teams played with great composure. You could really see the maturity by both teams this late in the season. It was a beautiful game.” The victory was sweet revenge for the Bears, who fell to Eastport, 2-1, Sept. 23, when Schmidt had two goals for the Ducks.

The ’98 Bears

On this day 20 years ago, the boys’ soccer team upset Babylon, 3-2. Here is the account of the game from Newsday.

Albert Helps S. Brook Upset Babylon

Stony Brook needed a big win to stay in the race for second place in League VII boys soccer. Yesterday, it got it.

Chris Albert scored the game-winning goal when he curled a direct kick from 35 yards into the lower left corner to give Stony Brook a 3-2 overtime upset over Babylon. For the Bears (5-4), the win was a payback for a 1-0 loss they suffered to Babylon (5-3) earlier in the season.

“You can imagine at halftime being down 2-0 the thoughts were very bleak,” Stony Brook coach David Church said. “The kids were saying at halftime, `No ties, remember Babylon.’ They want some justice from when they got beat earlier in the year and they got it.”

Stony Brook got on the board when Nick Miaritis scored on a pass from Josh Stephens 6:16 into the second half to make it 2-1. Ryosuke Ito tied it at 2 for the Bears by knocking in a cross from Miaritis midway through the second half. Then came Albert’s game-winner.

“He’s {Albert} had a great career, but this is a huge goal for him,” Church said. “As far as I’m concerned it gave us a win over a team we had to beat to be playoff bound. This win made a real statement in the league that can hold over going into the playoffs.”

The Bears went on to clinch the first ever Final Four berth in school history.
