Midfielders senior Alex Corpolongo — known for his outside sniping — senior Jeff Reh and sophomore Ryland Rees will spearhead a midfield unit that will play a more centralized role in a less down-low predicated offense.

wow! More than I hoped for. Though the play vs Navy was at times slow and sloppy, I believe
mission accomplished. They played many freshman and in key spots. White at the point on man up,
Bollinger in goal, Haun on attack. With the adjustments that were made between games, moving
Corp back to middie adding Grippe to attack with Haun and just having that 1st game jitters I thought
we played much much better vs ND. Mac in goal is a magician, many doorstep saves. Bitzer solid, Rees solid,
Abdellatif and Pugal down low solid. Corp needs to go back to middie, we need his cannon up top. Reh was his usual
I can play anywhere you want me self. Over all a very good day.

thanks!  all great info.

Stony Brook

Like Notre Dame, Stony Brook has some big holes to fill from last year’s squad. The graduating class – which included attackmen Challen Rogers and Cody Eastwood, defender Dylan Curry, and goaltender Zach Oliveri – were key players throughout their career as Seawolves. In Saturday’s scrimmages, the coaching staff used the entire roster and shuffled players into different positions to see what potential the squad might have come 2017.

“We lost that big senior class that scored all those goals. We are just moving guys around to figure it out,” said head coach Jim Nagle. “Top to bottom, I think we are more athletic, but we are a little unseasoned and have a lot to work on. It’s a good group. I like the way they responded today.”

Rogers himself accounted for 22 goals last season and 59 points, production that Nagle admits is unlikely to be replicated by another player on the roster. What he does have is a deep, skilled team that will have to rely on teamwork and chemistry on both sides of the field to find success this season.

“We’re going to be a different team with more two-way potential than we’ve previously had, more by committee. I don’t think you replace a Challen Rodgers,” said Nagle.

One of those who will have to step up is senior Ryan Bitzer. The Riverhead, N.Y., native was a leading scorer last season and showed this past weekend he is still a dual threat with the ball in 6-on-6 offense or transition. He understands how Stony Brook will have to play this season and is looking forward to getting his teammates involved.

“We never really rely on one guy. We rely on one group,” said Bitzer. “We are all about team ball. We all play as one.”

In the first game against Navy, Stony Brook struggled to generate momentum due to sloppiness with the ball and lack of possession. Face-off specialist Jay Lindsay will return for the 2017 season, but is taking a semester off due to his graduate studies.

It was in the second game against Notre Dame where the Seawolves potential new style was on display. They turned the Fighting Irish’s offensive mistakes, as well as timely saves from freshman goaltender Michael Bollinger, into transition chances that ended up in the back of the net. While the inexperienced defense will need time to grow together, longstick midfielder Ryland Rees, Justin Pugal, and other veterans will be pivotal to helping them out and pushing the pace forward, not backward. 

“Ryland Rees and a couple of our guys can push the pace in transition. That will probably be our hallmark more than slow the ball down,” admitted Nagle.

SBU fan gear can be purchased from Boat House starting on Monday (store is only open for two weeks). Thought I'd share as this stuff is (curiously) not available through the bookstore on campus or their online store:

looks like good stuff.

nearly impossible to pick out a lineup this early (or even in Feb!) but what are people thinking?  no inside info, just guesses here... there are however a few safe locks.  bitzer, reh, corpo.  Lindsay, rees/anderson, etc. 

sounds like haun has made great strides quickly, and also that grippe will contribute too.  sheets is back from injury.

at mid, we run a lot of bodies.  heard good things about Lloyd, daly, and Robison.  also some new faces that may contribute on offense are matsuoka, van ginhoven, kadnar, white, etc.

for defense, look for abdellatif to move down low and also for pugal to return to pole.  not sure on the third spot but would love to see Anderson down there, maybe one of the new faces.  either way, with randall/curry departing, we will be BIG down there.

happy to hear anything else you guys have.  only 4 months away!

food for thought. Bitzer, Haun, Sheets/Grippe attack. Reh, Corp, Lloyd 1st Middie, Abdellatif, Pugal, Anderson down low w/ Mac in goal and Lindsay at fogo.
So many athletic middies to choose from for 2nd line. Daly,Robison,White looks like a good mix. Ellis back from injury for D middie. Rees on the wing.
This group has up tempo written all over it.

thanks and yes i just saw hofstra's schedule, we are on for tues night under the lights at shuart.

also, navy video: http://www.lax.com/stories/lax-video/us-naval-academy-vs-stony-brook-2016-fall-lacrosse-highlights/

footage shows (note!  i didnt say "suggests")- philbin at faceoffs, bollinger in goal, pugal played some LSM, white on offense, saw some cole anderson out there, pedone at short, etc.  everything else seems to already have been said.

would rather hear from someone who was actually there!

Philbin did take a bunch of draws but Lindsay took the semester off from Lax to focus on his studies.   He will be back in the spring.

Yes, Lindsay will be back in the spring. It was a great opportunity for some of the other guys to get a bunch of reps in.
From what I saw at the scrimmage we look to be very athletic. Because of the turnover on the roster I can see multiple
line ups through the 1st couple of weeks of the season. We have enough experience back to compete. Lindsay,Bitzer,Corp,Reh,
Pugal,Sheets,Ellis,Rees,Anderson,etc... Coaches just need to fill in the blanks,and with size of our freshman and sophomore class there
is enough quality to choose from.

What's up with Johnstone?  Still listed on roster but doesn't have a # and I don't believe he played in the Navy/ND scrimmages?   To me he is the best goalie on the roster.
