Cook Nets Seven as No. 10 Stony Brook Beats Binghamton

Stony Brook, N.Y. On her Senior Day, Demmianne Cook continued to help No. 10 Stony Brook make history, pouring in seven goals and controlling seven draws as the Seawolves clinched their first-ever outright America East regular season crown with a 17-6 win over Binghamton Saturday at LaValle Stadium.

The Nesconset, N.Y., native, who became Stony Brook women's lacrosse's first Tewaaraton nominee yesterday and pushed her school-record goal total to 76 today, also scooped up a game-best four ground balls and caused two turnovers. Senior Janine Hillier recorded two goals and one helper, while sophomore Michelle Rubino posted a hat trick and dished out one assist as Stony Brook moved to 14-2 overall and an unblemished 6-0 in America East action.

Hannah Perruccio, a senior who was instrumental to last year's remarkable 10-win turnaround, got the starting nod and made seven stops.

Katherine Hunsberger tallied four points on three goals and one assist, while Angela Vespa posted three goals for Binghamton (2-12, 1-5 AE).
