Stony Brook Bears Steal King’s Crown

The Stony Brook School boys’ lacrosse team came from beind, 6-1, in the final period of play and downed the Kingsmen of Kings Park, 7-6. Trailing by five goals with 8:44 left in the fourth quarter, the Bears began a six-goal spurt that ended with senior Alex Radin of Setauket catching a deflected pass and skipping a shot past the Kings Park goalie with a mere 20 seconds left in the game.

“No doubt about it,” reflected Radin, “it was an amazing final period. Everyone rose to the occasion and pulled this victory from defeat.” The momentum changed when freshman Jake Kenney of Stony Brook notched two goals within 45 seconds of the fourth quarter. The effort was duplicated all over the field.

Radin banged home three goals and senior Rich Droscoski of Port Jefferson netted another. Senior Jeremy Linzee of Stony Brook intercepted a fastbreak pass and sophomore goalie Matt Avitable made a difficult save in the waning minutes when the score was tied.
