Stony Brook can't finish comeback at UML

Published: October 19, 2013


Lowell, Mass. - After falling behind 3-0 to UMass Lowell, the Stony Brook men's soccer team fought back with a barrage of second-half opportunities, but the #Seawolves could not complete the comeback, falling short in a 3-2 loss to the River Hawks Saturday night at Cushing Field.
