QUEENS, N.Y. – Zsani Kajan buried a penalty kick in the 63rd minute as the St. John’s University women defeated Providence College, 1-0, in a Big East encounter on Senior Day at Belson Stadium Sunday afternoon.

The Red Storm improved to 8-5-2, 3-3-1 while Providence fell to 8-7-2, 3-3-1.

The goal was Kajan’s 12th of the campaign, a season best for the Budapest, Hungary native. Kajan has 40 career goals, tying Adriana Viola for second on the program’s all-time scoring list.

Goalkeeper Naya Lipkens turned aside five of the Friars’ tries on target for a career-high 57 saves on the season. She has recorded six clean sheets this year, as well as one shared shutout. The Bloomfield, Conn. native is the first Johnnie to log six shutouts in a single season since Diana Poulin recorded a program-high 12 in 2016.

The Friars appeared to net the first goal of the game in the seventh minute, but the tally was negated by the assistant referee’s flag as the play was called offsides.

Kajan converted her PK midway through the second half.

Nicole Gordon was taken down in the box by Maria Paveglio, setting up the opportunity for Kajan. The graduate student delivered a booming strike to the left corner of the cage.

The Red Storm visits Seton Hall in South Orange, N.J. Thursday at 7 p.m.
