BURLINGTON, Vt. - Jessica Roach tallied the lone goal in overtime to lift Vermont past #15 Stony Brook, 8-7, on UVM's senior day Saturday at Virtue Field. The Catamounts finish the regular season with a 12-5 overall record and a 3-2 mark in conference play. With the win, Vermont secured the No. 3 seed in the America East tournament. The Catamounts will play the second-seeded Albany Great Danes on Friday (May 2) at 7:30 p.m. at Stony Brook's LaValle Stadium. Sydney Mas tallied two goals in the contest and now has 59 on the year, as she now owns the Vermont program record for most goals in a single season. The senior added an assist for her third point of the game, as she also became the UVM record-holder for most points in a single season (69).

Graham Horvath and Andrew Buckanavage combined for seven goals, but Vermont fell to UMBC, 17-14, on Vermont's Senior Day Saturday afternoon at Virtue Field. The Catamounts wrap up the season with a 5-8 overall record and 0-5 mark in league play. Vermont honored seniors Nate Billings, Thomas Martin, Garrett Virtue, Derek Braig, Mark D'Anthony and Graham Horvath with a ceremony prior to the game as part of Senior Day.
