STONY BROOK, N.Y. - The University of New Hampshire men's soccer team saw its six-game unbeaten streak snapped with a 1-0 loss to Stony Brook University Sunday afternoon. UNH ends the regular season at 10-4-2 overall and 4-2-2 in America East, while the Seawolves finish the 2002 campaign at 3-13-1 overall and 2-5-0 in the league.
The Wildcats enter the America East Men's Soccer Championship, which kicks off next weekend, as the No. 4 seed. They will travel to top-ranked Northeastern on Saturday, November 9 at 6 p.m. UNH defeated the Huskies 3-2 earlier this season in Durham.
Stony Brook netted the only goal of the game as Kevin Cameron found the back of the net for the Seawolves in the 78th minute. He took a feed from Keegan Pitter and placed it in the upper left corner of the goal for the tally.
UNH nearly netted the equalizer with just under six minutes to play. Leading scorer Nicola Chicco (Claymont, Del.) collected the ball in the box after a corner kick and fired a shot that bounced off the crossbar. The 'Cats earned another corner kick moments later but after a scrum in front of the Stony Brook goal the Seawolves cleared the ball out.
Mike Vignola (Hudson, N.H.) made five saves in net for the Wildcats, while Dan Ferrin made six stops for Stony Brook to pick up the shutout.
