Freshman Mike Rooney had career highs in goals (five) goals and points (six) for Stony Brook in a 13-5 romp Saturday over state rival Binghamton in an America East men's lacrosse game at the Bearcats Sports Complex in Vestal, N.Y.

It was the second straight win for Stony Brook (3-7, 2-0).

Stony Brook started fast as Robbie Campbell, Matt Bellando, Rooney and Adam Dahms all scored over the first 6:29 of the contest to give the Seawolves a 4-0 lead.

Binghamton came back with two goals, including an unassisted score by Kelly Donigan with 1:01 left in the first to trim the deficit to 4-2.

Stony Brook answered with a goal in the second period by Russ Bonanno and added five more in the third for a 10-3 lead heading into the fourth.

Campbell and Bonanno each had two goals and two assists, Bellando had two scores and Jeff Tundo had three assists in the win for Stony Brook.

Seawolves coach Jim Nagle lauded the play of Tundo and his goalie Sean Brady, who stopped 17 shots.

"Tonight's effort was an unselfish one," Nagle said. "A guy like Jeff Tundo [three assists], who sacrificed his point total to take more draws for us, has been instrumental during our two-game winning streak. Sean Brady was outstanding, and that's why he and Jeff received game balls."

Brandon Planck had two goals and Michael Antinozzi had three assists for Binghamton (3-8, 0-2).
