QUEENS, N.Y. – With the start of the regular season right around the corner, the St. John’s women’s soccer team will begin preseason play Wednesday night against local rival Fordham at 7 p.m. at Belson Stadium.

The two teams, who last met during the 2013 regular season, are scheduled to play three 30-minute periods under the lights.

Last season the Johnnies went unbeaten at home, posting an 8-0-2 record on their home turf.

After the game, the Red Storm hits the road to take on Penn State Saturday in its final preseason tune up. The regular season kicks off Friday, Aug. 18 when the team travels to Philadelphia to take on La Salle.
