QUEENS, N.Y. -- Despite sophomore Caitlin Hostetler's (Portsmouth, R.I.) first half goal, the Providence College women's soccer team closed out their season with a 2-1 two overtime loss to the St. John's Red Storm in Queens, N.Y. on Sunday, October 28. The Friars end the year with a record of 3-14-1 (2-9 BIG EAST). The Red Storm improve to 11-5-2 (6-5 BIG EAST).
The first half began quickly as St. John's took three shots that senior goalkeeper Laura Elfers (Deer Park, N.Y.) deflected away from danger. The Red Storm found the back of the net in the 12th minute as Raelynne Lee sent a corner kick to the far post that teammate Susan Byrne took a shot that deflected away. Seconds later, Amanda Pasciolla finished the play with a header to give St. John's a 1-0 advantage. PC's first scoring opportunity came on a Kelly Pettersen (Massapequa, N.Y.) shot in the 23rd minute that was turned away on a great save by SJU goalkeeper Jamie Beran. The Friars kept possession of the ball in the Red Storm third and a minute later capitalized. Junior Megan Mancarella (Rochester, N.Y.) tapped the ball to Hostetler in the middle of a scramble in front of the net. Hostetler took the shot and put the Friars on the board. It was Hostetler's first goal of the season and her first goal in a Friar uniform.
The game remained at 1-1 throughout the second half as both teams jockeyed for possession.
The Red Storm controlled the first overtime but were unable to get a shot past Elfers for the golden goal. SJU kept possession throughout the second overtime as well, and finally put the game out of reach in the final seconds. Courtney Lane crossed the ball into the box where teammate Amanda Santos took a shot past Elfers to give the Red Storm the 2-1 victory.
Elfers finished the contest with eight saves while her counterpart Beran tallied one save.
