Laforet's OT Goal Lifts Stony Brook Over Hartford

Senior JJ Laforet (Georgetown, Ontario) won the overtime draw and went right down the middle for the goal as Stony Brook escaped with a 10-9 win over Hartford on Saturday night at Al-Marzook Field.

"I took it down the gut and just shot it," said Laforet, who took only one face-off tonight. "All you can do is shoot and hope it goes in. It's not about aim. Coach believed in me and I wanted this for our team."

Senior Jeff Tundo (Orchard Park, N.Y.) scored three goals and freshmen Matt Schultz (Smithtown, N.Y.) and Brody Eastwood (Victoria, British Columbia) each tallied two goals for Stony Brook (7-7, 2-2 America East).

Freshman Challen Rogers (Coquitlam, British Columbia) tallied a goal and two assists and sophomore Mike Rooney (East Islip, N.Y.) added a goal and an assist.

It was the fourth overtime game, fourth straight one-goal contest and sixth overall this season. Kevin O'Shea and Andrew Cacchio each had three goals for Hartford (7-5, 2-2).
