Junior Shannon Fitzgerald then blew a sidearm shot past Anna Tesoriero from six yards out to cut the deficit to three with 8:11 to play in the half. Dorrien Van Dyke scored off the dodge at 4:54 and Ally Kennedy closed out the half with a quick-stick goal at 56.2 to send Stony Brook into the half with an 8-3 lead.
