QUEENS, N.Y. – Trailing Creighton University in the second half, the St. John’s University women tallied the equalizer in the 79th minute to record a 1-1 Big East draw at Belson Stadium Sunday.
Six St. John’s seniors were honored prior to the game, as the program recognized Samantha Masur, Madeline McCracken, Christine McBeath, Jordan Kamp, Zsani Kajan and Meredith Reinhardt in their final home game at Belson Stadium.
Kajan found the back of the net again for the Red Storm, scoring her fourth goal in the last two games and her 10th this season. Kajan is one of three St. John’s women’s players to record double-digit scoring in multiple seasons. The redshirt junior joined Cristin Burtis and Rachel Daly. She increased her career total to 23, moving into fifth on the Red Storm’s all-time list.
McCracken picked up the assist on Kajan’s goal, for her first this season and the second of her career.
Reinhardt proved steadfast between the pipes for the Johnnies, registering six saves against a high-powered Creighton offense, with four coming in extratime.
Creighton found the back of the net in the 65th minute. The sequence began as Jordy Rothwell sent a long pass to freshman Skylar Heinrich. The rookie forward scored her 11th goal of the season.
Just under 15 minutes later, the Johnnies responded as McCracken send a pass across to Kajan. The Budapest, Hungary native corralled the ball before powering a left-footed shot to the corner of the cage for the equalizer.
St. John’s will wrap up its regular season, traveling to No. 14 Georgetown Thursday at 2 p.m.
