Heartbreak in Omaha

The St. John’s men’s soccer team was forced to swallow a pill of heartbreak Saturday night after a 1-0 double overtime loss to Creighton at Morrison Stadium.

Fabian Herbers’ curling free kick from 20 yards out found the back of the net in the 109th minute — just one minute before full time.

“Soccer can be a cruel game and we’re obviously quite disappointed to lose with such little time left on the clock,” St. John’s head coach Dr. Dave Masur said in a press release.

The Red Storm’s (5-2-0, 0-1-0) disappointment came in the midst of an ecstatic 5,282 Creighton (5-1-0, 1-0-0) fans, as the win was the Blue Jay’s 400th in program history.

“I’m proud of our effort and of our resolve in such a tough environment,” Masur said. “We weren’t able to create much in the first half, but I thought we played with much more energy as part of a better second half effort.”

The Johnnies nearly scored the winner with seven seconds left in regulation but Daniel Herrera’s right-footed strike from right outside the 18-yard box was pushed over the cross bar by Creighton’s Alex Bolowich.

Jimmy Mulligan had an even better chance to put the game away in the 103rd minute but he sent his left-footed shot just high of the frame.

Masur’s men will look to bounce back Saturday when they travel to Chicago to face DePaul.

“It’s very disappointing to be going home with a loss, but now we have to focus on another tough road game at DePaul,” Masur said.

About the Contributor
Mitchell Petit-Frere, Managing Editor
Contact: [email protected]. Mitch likes Cristiano Ronaldo. Other than that, he’s been a great Sports Editor the past year. Mitch came in as the biggest question mark, with only half a year of experience as a staff writer and fresh from a semester abroad where he picked up weird fashion trends like scarves in the summer. He quickly answered any questions about whether he was up to the task, improving the sports section in every facet, while adding a unique voice in his columns. Now, as managing editor, I’m sure he’ll bring that same perspective and quality to the paper as a whole. — Mike Cunniff Editor-in-Chief, Emeritus
