Van Dyke's Nine Pts. Help No. 17 Stony Brook Sail by Siena

Stony Brook, N.Y. Freshman Dorrien Van Dyke totaled a freshman-record nine points on five goals and four assists as No. 17 Stony Brook downed Siena, 19-6, Saturday afternoon at LaValle Stadium.

The nine points are tied for fifth-most in #Seawolves single-game history with multiple players and are the most for a player other than former All-American Claire Petersen.

Van Dyke added a team-high four draw controls to her stat line for Stony Brook (7-2). Freshmen attackers Courtney Murphy (four goals, one assist) and Alyssa Guido (two goals, two assists) recorded five points and four points, respectively. Classmate and midfielder Kristin Yevoli tallied one goal and one helper as freshmen accounted for 71.4 percent (20 of 28) of the Seawolves' 28 points.

Senior Frankie Caridi and freshman Kaitlyn Leahy made four stops apiece in net. Casey Irwin and Erin Mossop each scored a hat trick for Seina (2-7).
