The Stony Brook men’s soccer team clinched at least a share of the America East regular-season title with a 6-0 road win over Hartford.

The win moves the Seawolves to 5-1-0 in conference play (8-5-2 overall). They can win the regular season title outright with a win over UMBC at home on Wednesday.

Stony Brook took control of the match early taking a 1-0 lead in 10th minute on a Hartford own goal. Five different goal scorers would then follow to give the road side a wide margin of victory.

“Wonderful performance tonight,” said Ryan Anatol, the team’s head coach. “The guys showed a real determination to get the result and were really sharp right from the start of the game. “We moved the ball well and created some good opportunities and finished our chances. Also very pleased we were able to keep our concentration throughout the game and keep a shutout.”

Goal scorers on the night for the Seawolves were senior Serge Gamwanya, junior Jarred Dass, junior Gustavo Fernandes of West Babylon, redshirt sophomore Gabriel Fernandes of North Babylon and redshirt freshman Matias Prando.

The six goals are the most scored in a single match in the Anatol-era and the team’s most in a game since 1995.

The Seawolves close out the regular season at home on Halloween as they host UMBC. Game time from LaValle Stadium is 7 p.m.
