The Stony Brook defense forced Towson to turn the ball over as the possession clock expired, which ultimately led to the Seawolves' game-winning goal with four seconds remaining on the game clock.

But for the first time in recent years, in which rules changes like self-starts and three seconds as a major foul have benefitted offenses, Duke coach Kerstin Kimel and Stony Brook coach Joe Spallina say the defense finally has an advantage.

Coaches downplayed the clock's effect during fall ball. Yet both Duke and Stony Brook opened the season with wins featuring game-changing plays resulting directly from it.

Stony Brook won their first game against Towson, 10-9, on Kylie Ohlmiller’s game-winning goal with four seconds left. Preceding that, with 1:53 remaining, the Tigers won the draw, but failed to get a shot off before the possession clock expired. The Seawolves were awarded possession with 17 seconds left, then earned a free position after a successful clear – the attack had a head start on Drexel downfield – and saw the game-winner seal the deal
