B Lacrosse 1998

On this day 20 years ago, the boys’ lacrosse team topped Shoreham-Wading River, 4-2, in a defensive battle. Here is the recap from Newsday:

Goalies Shine in SB Win

Sean Metz scored two goals and Dave Pike made nine saves as Stony Brook beat Shoreham-Wading River, 4-2, in a Division II game. Bob Gildea made 12 saves for Shoreham-Wading River. “Both goalies were on their game, that’s for sure,” Stony Brook coach John Kenney said. Gildea made two point-blank saves in the fourth quarter, and a third diving for an open catch. Pike had three fourth quarter saves to seal the victory.

The Bears led 2-0 after the first quarter, but only 2-1 at the half as the Wildcats blanked them in the second frame. Each squad added a score in the third, but the Bear defense put up a zero in fourth to seal the win. Jay Miaritis and Jon Marvin added goals for the Bears.

The Brook would go on to win a third consecutive Division crown before topping the Wildcats again in a Suffolk County semifinal thriller to earn a fifth consecutive berth in the County Finals.
