It was a frustrating Saturday afternoon for Stony Brook’s men’s soccer team in upstate New York as the Seawolves and Siena Saints played to a 1-1 draw in men’s soccer action.

Despite outshooting Siena 8-3 in the first half and 21-10 overall, Stony Brook found itself trailing 1-0 after 30 minutes as Linus Johansson goal in the 31st minute put the Saints ahead.

Serge Gamwanya would bring the Seawolves level with a goal in the 42nd minute, his third consecutive goal over the past two matches. Junior Kyle Honor of South Setauket was credited with the assist.

But those two first-half goals would be all the scoring as neither team could break through in the second half and overtime.

Stony Brook freshman keeper Christian Miesch was credited with two saves over 110 minutes of action.

“Overall it was a strong performance, we wanted to carry the game and dominate play,” said Ryan Anatol, Stony Brook’s head coach. “We created over 20 shots and double-digit corners, which shows we were able to do that. But we were not sharp enough defensively at the beginning of the game, or in front of the goal and that was the difference between earning a win and a tie today.”

The Seawolves will take on Hofstra on Wednesday, September 12, at 7 p.m. at LaValle Stadium.
