Kylie Ohlmiller (Islip) had four goals, including a highlight reel between the legs shot with her back to the cage, and three assists and Courtney Murphy (Shirley) had five goals and an assist as the Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team defeated Marist, 19-3, Tuesday in Poughkeepsie.

Murphy, who has 12 goals on the year, moved to 15th on the all time NCAA D-I goals list with 232.

Keri McCarthy (Hauppauge) tied a program record with 12 draw controls and also had three assists as the Seawolves dominated possession. As a team, Stony Brook controlled 20 of 23 draws and outshot the Red Foxes 39-11.

“I was happy with our approach today. Mid-week road games are never easy,” coach Joe Spallina said. “We came out and jumped on Marist early, set the tone and jumped out big. Our heavy hitters came out and took care of business and we were able to get so many people quality playing time,”

Ally Kennedy (North Babylon) added four goals and an assist and Dorrien Van Dyke (Northport) had two goals and three assists for the Seawolves (3-0).
