Women's Soccer closes regular season with loss

The Syracuse women's soccer team falls to St. John's in the regular season finale, 2-0. The team now sets its eyes on Georgetown in the Big East Tournament.

The Syracuse University women’s soccer team (7-7-3, 6-5-0 Big East) dropped its second straight game Friday after losing to the St. John’s University Red Storm (9-8-1, 5-6-0 Big East) 2-0 at Belson Stadium in Jamaica, N.Y.

The game started off with St. Johns forward Jen Leaverton scoring just after the nine-minute mark. Leaverton’s goal was the only one scored in the first half, despite the Orange outshooting St. John’s 7-2. SU also had a corner in the first 45 minutes. 

The second half started off the same way the first half did, as Leaverton netted her second goal of the game at the 47:05 mark, giving the Red Storm a two-goal lead.

Despite the two straight losses to close out the season, the Orange will head into the Big East Tournament with a first-round bye.

The Orange will play the Georgetown Hoyas (14-5-0, 8-3-0 Big East) in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament Sunday at 1 p.m. in Washington D.C. The Hoyas bested the Orange Sept. 23 at the SU Soccer Stadium, 3-1.
