Duval leads #Seawolves over Pioneers, 4-2

Published: September 23, 2014


Fairfield, Conn. - Freshman Thibault Duval (Grace Hollogne, Belgium) scored two goals and added two assist to lead the #Seawolves to a 4-2 road victory over Sacred Heart on Tuesday night. His six-point evening was the highest point total from a Seawolf since Chris Megaloudis scored four goals against Philadelphia University in 2005.

Anatol's Reaction

"The guys showed a positive response on the road after falling behind early," said Anatol. "We played some good attacking soccer tonight and scored some really good goals to get the result."

Goal Recaps

  • Sacred Heart's Jamal Vinson put the Pioneers ahead in the 11th minute with his first goal of the season.
  • Duval tallied his first career goal in the 15th minute to pull Stony Brook level. Martin Giordano(Weston, Fla.) started the play when he sprayed a pass wide to freshman Danny Espinoza (East Meadow, N.Y.).  Espinoza found Duval on top of the box and the midfielder buried the chance with a shot high and to the far post.
  • Vinson added a second goal in the 22nd minute to give Sacred Heart a 2-1 lead.
  • For the second time in the match, Duval answered a Sacred Heart goal, heading home a cross from senior Keith McKenna (Great River, N.Y.) in the 24th minute.
  • Junior Jevaughn Vance (Arima, Trinidad) scored a howitzer, his first goal as a Seawolf, to give Stony Brook its first lead. The play started with a nice 1-2 combination between Duval and sophomore Jorge Torres (Miami, Fla.) on top of the box. The ball eventually found its way to Vance who ripped a shot from 25 yards up into the upper 90.
  • Giordano provided a critical insurance goal in the 81st minute. The opportunity presented itself thanks to some suffocating team pressure from the Stony Brook front five, forcin a Pioneer turnover. Duval picked up the ball and found Giordano who calmly finished to put the game to bed. 


  • The four goal output was the highest total since the Seawolves netted five goals against Binghamton in the 2012 America East quarterfinal.
  • Stony Brook and Sacred Heart each registered 20 shots. The Seawolves edged the Pioneers 14-13 in shots on target.
  • Redshirt freshman Tom McMahon (Nassau Bay, Texas) set a new career-high with 11 saves.
  • Six Seawolves recorded at least a point. Espinoza's assist was the first point of his career.
  • Stony Brook's 20 shots and 14 shots on goal were both season-highs.
