On Wednesday, March 13, the Marist women's lacrosse team will host Stony Brook in a 4:00 p.m. non-conference game. Coming off of their first victory of 2013 last Wednesday at Binghamton, the Red Foxes (1-4) will face-off with the #16 nationally ranked Seawolves (4-1).

RED FOXES & SEAWOLVES ... Marist and Stony Brook have met five times over the past 10 years, including each of the past two seasons. In the Red Foxes' three wins they've held on for tight one-goal victories ('11, 9-8, '09, 11-10 and '03, 7-6), while the Seawolves' two victories have been more substantial ('12, 17-5 and '08, 22-11).

In last year's meeting on March 24 in Stony Brook, N.Y., the Seawolves jumped out to a 4-0 lead before the Red Foxes fought back with two goals in quick succession by Amanda Tuck and Shannon Haas. Sabrina Mattera's first career goal two minutes later made it a 5-3 game. The host Seawolves would control the final 40 minutes of play and outscore the Red Foxes 12-2 to take the 17-5 victory. Ashley Casiano made a career-high 16 saves in goal.

SCOUTING STONY BROOK ... The Seawolves come into Wednesday's contest with a 4-1 record and double-digit goal victories over Bucknell, Central Connecticut State, Duquesne and Longwood. Their lone loss of the season came on the road at #3 Florida by a score 16-9. Of note, Longwood is Stony Brook's single win over a team with an above .500 record.

The second-highest scoring offense in Division 1 women's lacrosse, Stony Brook averages 17 goals a game, while allowing just 6 goals per contest, the fourth-best average in the nation.

Individually, the high scoring trio of Demmianne Cook (26g-1a-27p), Claire Petersen (13g-20a-33p) and Janine Hillier (13g-6a-19p) lead the Seawolves; Cook's 5.2 goals/game average is first in the nation, as is Peterson's 4.0 assists/game mark.

In goal, junior goalie Frankie Caridi has posted a 5.98 GAA and .509 save percentage.

LAST TIME OUT ... The Marist women's lacrosse team was firing on all cylinders in its road game at Binghamton on Wednesday, March 6. The Red Foxes earned their first win with an 11-6 victory over the Bearcats. A 6-2 halftime advantage would be all that Marist would need on their way to the wire-to-wire win. Sophomore Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.) led all scorers with four points with two goals and two assists; in total five Red Foxes had two goals.

For the game, Marist outshot Binghamton 21-16 with a 17-12 advantage in shots on goal. The Red Foxes also finished with more ground balls 11-8, draw controls 10-9 and caused turnovers 8-2.
