Sean Goldrich connected with Justin Mello for three touchdowns as New Hampshire defeated Stony Brook 31-13 Saturday.
Goldrich threw for 186 yards and had scoring passes of 23, 15 and 36 yards. Each touchdown pass landed in Mello's hands as he surpassed 100 yards receiving and led the Wildcats (4-3, 3-1 CAA) with eight catches. Chris Setian picked up the remaining New Hampshire touchdown on a short 1-yard rush midway through the second quarter.
Stony Brook (3-4, 1-3) grabbed a small lead in the first quarter when Graham Ball kicked a 21-yard field goal. The Wildcats responded with a safety and shortly after a touchdown, taking a lead that they would not relent. Ball kicked another field goal to finish out the half 16-6. A TD pass by Lyle Negron nearing the end of the third marked the last points for the Seawolves.
