QUEENS, N.Y. -
Senior back Anthony Baumann (Spring Hill, Fla.) converted a penalty kick in the 77th minute to send the Providence College men’s soccer team to a 1-0 win at No. 11/14 St. John’s on Saturday night at Belson Stadium.
With the win, the Friars move to 7-1-2 (2-0-0 BIG EAST) on the season, while St. John’s is now 5-4-1 (0-2-1 BIG EAST).
Late in the second half, red-shirt junior Markus Naglestad (Kristiansand, Norway) beat the Red Storm defense and cut through the St. John’s box, where he was fouled. Baumann then stepped up and converted his second penalty kick of the season to lift the Friars to the victory.
In the final 20 minutes of the game, Friar goalkeeper Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) turned in several impressive saves, including a point blank save on Marco Bordon in the 69th minute that kept the score tied at 0-0. The shutout was Broome’s third of the year and the fifth of his Friar career.
St. John’s held a slight edge in shots (12-11), while the Friars led in shots on goal (6-5). Broome finished with three saves and Red Storm goalkeeper Rafael Diaz made five saves in the match.
The Friar victory snapped the Red Storm’s five-game home winning streak. The win was Providence’s first over St. John’s since the 1988 season and third overall in series history.
The Friars are back in action on Wednesday, Oct. 9 when they play host to BIG EAST foe Georgetown in a 3:00 p.m. match that will be played at the newly constructed Ray Treacy Track. The Hoyas will enter the game with a 1-0-1 BIG EAST record.
