BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Closing out the exhibition portion of its schedule Thursday night, the St. John’s University women used a 48th-minute goal from Kayla Mesaros to break a scoreless tie and pick up its second victory of the preseason, 1-0, over Lehigh University.
Mesaros’ shot marked her second goal of the preseason with the help from Maia Cabrera, who assisted.
The Red Storm registered its first shot on goal 21 seconds into the match as Zsani Kajan flicked it on target but saw her shot turned away by the Lehigh keeper. The Budapest, Hungary native took three more shots on goal.
Four other Johnnies registered shots on target for the Red Storm as the squad, which outshot the Mountain Hawks 8-7.
The dynamic goalkeeping duo of Meredith Reinhardt and Jordan Kamp helped to hold Lehigh scoreless over 90 minutes. Reinhardt came up big with two saves in the first period.
The Red Story will kick off the regular season with a trip to the Volunteer State to take on Southeast Conference foe Tennessee Aug. 16 at 7 p.m.
