QUEENS, N.Y. – For the second time in as many games, the St. John’s University women played Providence College to a 1-1 Big East draw in their season finale at Belson Stadium Sunday.
Prior to the start of the game seniors Jordan Kamp, Emily Purtell, Annie Wysong, Maia Cabrera, Zsani Kajan, Samantha Gordon and Alex Madden were all recognized for their contributions both on and off the pitch.
Sophomore forward Isabelle Aviza opened up scoring in the 35th minute for the Johnnies (5-4-2, 2-4-3). The sequence began as Madden controlled a loose ball before sending a shot toward the net that was blocked by the goalkeeper. Aviza corralled the rebound before tapping the ball into the left corner of the net. It was Aviza’s first of the season and second of her Red Storm career.
Providence (7-2-3, 5-2-3) tied the game in the 81st minute, as Christina Rodgers converted on a penalty kick.
