PRINCETON, N.J. – The script is starting to look awfully familiar for the St. John’s University men.

After both sides went almost the entirety of regulation without finding the back of the net, freshman Micaah Garnette broke the deadlock with a 79th-minute goal, powering the Johnnies to a 1-0 victory over Princeton University at Class of 1952 Stadium Tuesday night.

The Red Storm (7-2-0), which received votes in this week’s United Soccer Coaches poll, has won six straight contests, including four consecutive shutouts. In each of the team’s last three wins, the deciding tally has come in the 70th minute or later.

Princeton dropped to 3-4-0.

Garnette, a former New Jersey State player of the year at Gill St. Bernard’s, recorded his first collegiate goal in his home state. Lucas Bartlett and Atila Ashrafi, picked up an assist. Bartlett and Ashrafi have three assists this season.

Goalkeeper Luka Gavran logged his fourth consecutive shutout and his sixth in nine opportunities this season. The redshirt junior has gone 366:25 of gameplay since last allowing a goal. Gavran’s goals-against average has fallen to 0.56 while his save percentage has risen to .853.

Bartlett and Matt Chandler played all 90 minutes on the Red Storm backline. Jared Juleau, Einar Lye and Brandon Knapp also logged a full 90-minute effort.

The sequence began with some fancy footwork from Juleau on the left side of the field, as the junior faked a defender before sending a cross into the box that could did not find a teammate in front. The ball carried over to the far side of the field, where Ashrafi hustled to save it from going out of bounds before touching a pass toward a streaking Bartlett. Bartlett and a Princeton defender battled for position on the end line before the graduate student poked it in front to Garnette, who buried it in the back of the net.
