Storm beaten by Butler, fall to 7-3-2

St. John’s (7-3-2) came up short on Sunday as they suffered a tough 2-1 defeat to Butler.

St. John’s played shorthanded for most of the second half after Lara Kristin Pedersen received a red card in the 46th minute. The impact of the ejection proved too much to overcome.

“It was unfortunate to have that call happen,” head coach Ian Stone said. “But I am proud of how we played all game long, with our backs against the wall we showed our hearts, spirit and toughness ability to come back.”

Butler’s first goal was scored in the  70th minute by Sophia Maccagnone, to take a 1-0 lead. When all hope seemed lost and time was winding down, Amy Marron scored in the 89th minute on an assist from Sarah Ashmore to tie the game at 1-1 and send the match into overtime. Minutes later, Elise Kotskais scored the game winner in the 91st minute for Butler to secure the victory.

St. John’s managed just five shots on goal with Amy Marron and Rachel Daly each attempting two, Sarah Ashmore with one shot only one was on net.
Diana Poulin the outstanding freshman had three saves but it was not enough.

“I am proud of how we competed,” Stone said.  “It was a very tough game and hard game to lose, but we played together, [I’m] very proud of our defense and very confident moving on to the next game”

This is the first losing streak of the season for the St. John’s women’s soccer team, after coming off a loss to ranked No.21 Marquette 3-1.

St. John’s will look to right the ship when they return home to Belson Stadium on Oct. 12th against the Villanova Wildcats.
