Rain can’t keep St. John’s from big win over Mt. St. Mary’s
Th e St. John’s men’s soccer team extended
its unbeaten streak to three on Tuesday
night, Sept. 25, topping Mount St. Mary’s,
2-1, in non-conference action at a thoroughly
rain-soaked Belson Stadium.
Matt Forster put forth another tremendous
eff ort for the Red Storm (5-3-1, 1-0-1
Big East), registering the game-winning
goal in the 78th minute aft er assisting
on the team’s opening tally in the 23rd.
Forster is now tied for the league lead in
goals with fi ve on the season, while his 13
points are also good enough for tops in the
Johan Aquilon provided the other goal
for St. John’s, heading home the fi rst of
his collegiate career to give the Johnnies
an early lead. Aquilon was one of four
Johnnies to register a team-high three shots
on the evening.
Tyron Matuta needed to make to just
one save to earn his second victory of the
season in goal.
Aft er entering the Xavier game early on
and putting forth a solid eff ort in the Red
Storm’s draw with the Musketeers, freshman
Matt Chandler earned his fi rst career
start and played 90 minutes on the back
line against Mount St. Mary’s.
St. John’s dominated the Mountaineers
(1-5-2) statistically on the evening, registering
19 shots to Th e Mount’s six. Eleven of
the Johnnies’ 19 tries were on target, while
just two of the Mountaineers’ six shots
found their mark.
Mount St. Mary’s recorded the fi rst shot
of the evening in the second minute, as
Jonathan Godette sent a header on target
that was turned aside by Matuta.
From there, St. John’s dominated possession,
recording the game’s next fi ve
shots. Th e fi ft h shot, the fourth on target,
put the Johnnies on the board. Th e Red
Storm earned a free kick just outside the
box thanks to a Mount handball, giving
Forster a free kick from a dangerously close
distance. Th e junior sent it unimpeded to
the top of the six, where Aquilon headed
the ball off the keeper, Bobby Edwards,
and into the back of the net to put the Red
Storm ahead 1-0.
Th e Mountaineers wasted no time
responding, striking less than two minutes
later with a goal off the acrobatic
foot of Godette. Teammate Andrew Lasso
chipped a ball into the box toward Godette,
who skied for it, got parallel to the ground
and sent it into the top of the cage.
Aquilon recorded two more great chances
in the 31st and 33rd minutes, throwing
a pair of headers on target that were turned
aside by Edwards.
Knotted at one aft er 45 minutes of play,
St. John’s continued to dominate possession
and pace of play in the opening part of
the latter stanza.
Outshooting the Mountaineers 7-2 in the
period at this point, Forster stepped over a
free kick from about 30 yards out early in
the 79th minute. Standing just beyond the
top left corner of the box, the junior sent a
left -footed strike sailing for the right-side
upper 90. Th e bending try curved past the
outstretched hands of Edwards and put the
Johnnies ahead by a decisive 2-1 margin.
St. John’s returns to BIG EAST action on
Saturday, Sept. 29, playing host to Butler at
7 p.m. Th e contest will be broadcast live
