After a hard-fought game against #5 Villanova a week ago, Stony Brook went to Delaware to take on the #19 FCS team in the country. Stony Brook was in hopes of their first win, but things didn’t end up that way. They weren’t good on both sides of the ball, leading to Delaware completely dominating them. Stony Brook will go for that first win next Saturday at home against Maine.
All Delaware in The First Half
This game was seemingly over before it started. Delaware got going on their first possession with a field goal. Stony Brook answered that with a field goal of their own at the end of the first quarter. Going into the 2nd quarter it was still anyone’s game with the score at 3-3. But this is when Delaware started to pull away.
The first 2 Delaware drives of the quarter both ended with touchdowns. Suddenly, the deficit was 17-3 early on in the quarter. Stony Brook’s offense was missing from here on out. Drive after drive it was either a punt or a turnover. They could not move the ball against a tough Delaware defense, which pretty much summed up the game. The score remained 17-3 Blue Hens at the half.
More of The Same For Stony Brook
Half 2 wasn’t much different. All that went on was Delaware extending their lead, and Stony Brook not being able to get going. Delaware would extend their lead eventually in the 3rd quarter with a touchdown, pretty much wrapping this one up. Stony Brook needed an answer and just couldn’t find one.
Delaware put up another touchdown for good measure in the 4th quarter. That made the score 31-3, which was the score the Seawolves would eventually fall by.
Who Did What For Stony Brook
If the scoreboard tells you anything, it tells you Stony Brook’s offense was dead. Tyquell Fields only attempted 14 passes, completing 9 of them for 91 yards. Due to an injury, Fields was forced to miss the rest of the game. This brought in Josh Zamot. He went 12/22 for 83 yards and 2 interceptions. Jayden Cook led the rushing with 44 yards on 14 rushes. Stony Brook had 3 receivers with over 40 yards, led by Malik Love’s 45 yards on 5 receptions.
On the other side of the ball. Randy Pringle led the way with 7 total tackles. Ryan Vadis (yes a wide receiver) and Chris Campbell weren’t far behind, both having 6. The lone sack of the game came from Dakar Edwards. It was a tough day on defense for everyone.
