Women Dealt Tough Defeat by Conference Foe

After a heartbreaking loss to Cincinnati on Friday night in double overtime, the St. John’s women’s soccer team wasn’t able to recover, losing 6-0 to Louisville on Sunday afternoon at Cardinal Park.

“Louisville’s a fantastic team,” said St. John’s head coach Ian Stone. “They came out really strong and I was a little bit dissapointed in the way we played.”

The Red Storm (4-7, 0-4) got off to a rough start, giving up a goal in the 8th minute when Erin Yenney capitalized on a rebound and scored inside the left post to give the Cardinals an early 1-0 lead.

Louisville (7-2-1, 2-1-1) struck two more times in the first half with goals from Charlyn Corral and Christine Exeter. The Cardinals went into halftime with a 3-0 lead.

The Cardinals did not lose a step in the second half, scoring 3 goals in total, two within a span of 10 minutes, to take a 6-0 lead.

The Johnnies had chances to score in the second half from freshman Shelby Halász and junior Hailey Hemmer, but both were stopped from the Cardinal keeper, Chloe Kiefer. Louisville finished with a 27-6 advantage in shots and a 15-3 edge in shots on-goal.

The Johnnies’ senior keeper, Meredith Kenyon, registered a career best nine saves while posting her first complete game for the Red Storm.

St. John’s have yet to record a win in Big East play, losing four straight games. However, they will look to rebound next weekend as they have their next two games at home for senior and alumnae weekend.

St. John’s will face Rutgers this Friday on alumnae night and will play Seton Hall in a Sunday match that will honor each of the Red Storm’s seniors.
