Halley Quillinan (@hrquillinan): Stony Brook vs. Florida

In a rematch of last year’s 12-11 Stony Brook victory in Gainesville, the Gators are set to fly north on Saturday to take on the No. 8 Seawolves who recently opened their season with an 18-4 win over Bryant. Last spring, this was – in my opinion – the game that put the rest of the nation on watch as it pertains to Stony Brook. The win came a week after they upended Notre Dame, 9-5, at home, and a month after they opened their season with a 7-4 win over USC. Freshman Kylie Ohlmiller tallied six points on a game-high five goals and an assist, while Shannon Gilroy poured in two goals and dished out four assists.

Fast-forward a year, and Florida’s already proven they’re a national contender with wins over UNC and Syracuse; but where’s Stony Brook fit into all of this? The game against Bryant was their first of the season, so this is their first big test of the year. While the Seawolves return the bulk of their starting lineup and the majority of their offensive firepower (read: Ohlmiller, Murphy, Yevoli & Van Dyke) from 2015, the Gators rebuilt in the offseason – but into a much stronger team, in my opinion. Their speed, ability to execute and athleticism set them apart against the Orange. Can it do the same against Stony Brook?
