The Princeton University men’s soccer team traveled up to Queens, New York, on October 15, for an evening match, at Belson Field, against St. John’s, on a beautiful fall night which made for perfect soccer weather.
The Tigers were hoping to advance their unbeaten streak to four games and although they finished with a 12-9 lead in shots, and had an 8-1 advantage in corner kicks they failed to score a single goal, going down 2-0 in the match, thereby ending a three game unbeaten rally.
Both St. John’s goals came in the opening half; the first with an interception by Sean Sepe, roughly 30 yards out, who then took the ball into the box for a ninth minute, unassisted, goal.
The second St. John’s goal came in the 33rd minute when Jimmy Mulligan knocked in his own rebound after a big save by Princeton’s keeper, Seth MacMillan.
The Tigers, (now 4-6-1) will play their next game this Saturday October 19, at 4:00 PM; they’ll take on Columbia back at home, in Princeton, at Roberts Stadium.
