UMBC 1, Stony Brook 0: Playing for a bye in the first round of the conference tournament, the Seawolves were stymied by the UMBC defense. Andrew Bulls bent a free kick around the wall and off a Seawolf defender into the goal in the 65th minute. Leonardo Fernandes had a potential game-tying shot stopped by the keeper as the buzzer sounded, one of 19 shots for Stony Brook. The team finished with a record 9-6-3 (3-2-2), third in the conference. The Seawolves, the defending conference champions, will host a playoff game against Vermont, who they previously played to a scoreless tie on Oct. 16.
Stony Brook 1, Hartford 0: Stefan Manz notched another shutout, but this one is credited to the defense, who did not allow a shot on goal.
