QUEENS, N.Y. – The St. John’s University women return to the friendly confines of Belson Stadium for the first of back-to-back home games as they host Creighton University Thursday at 7 p.m.

The Red Storm enters with overall record of 4-5-1 and a 0-1-0 mark in the Big East after falling to then-No. 15/12 Georgetown in its conference opener Sunday.

St. John’s has held opponents to one goal or less in eight of 10 matches this season. The Red Storm’s two young goalkeepers, redshirt freshman Jordan Kamp and freshman Antonia Tammaro, have combined for a 1.06 goals-against average and 43 saves, both of which rank fifth in the Big East.

Tammaro has earned the start in each of the past three games and the Allentown, Pa., native has turned in solid outings in each contest. Along with the back line of Christine McBeath, Jesse Schaefer, Mikhaila Martinov, and Alexa Dolgos, Tammaro held Georgetown, the conference’s leading offense, to one goal.

Creighton (2-7-1, 0-1-0) is coming off a dramatic 2-1 loss to Xavier University in its conference opener. With only four seconds left in regulation, the Musketeers converted a corner kick for the game-winning goal.

The Bluejays have been carried by a young core of players. Nine of the 11 Creighton players with at least one point are either freshmen or sophomores. Starting keeper McKenzie Meola is in her second year of collegiate soccer.

Creighton was picked to finish eighth in the Big East preseason poll and has been tasked with replacing one of its most prolific scorers in program history in Lauren Sullivan. The Bluejays return 2016 Big East All-freshman team selection Taryn Jakubowski, who leads the team with three goals and two assists for eight points.

The Johnnies return to the pitch when they host Marquette University Sunday at 1 p.m.

Both games will be shown on the Big East Digital Network.
