Senior midfielder Adrian Roseth scored the game-winning goal in the 65th minute, lifting the St. John’s University men to a 2-1 Big East victory over DePaul University at Belson Stadium on Wednesday night.

With the score knotted up at 1-1, Wesley Leggett narrowly missed putting the Red Storm on top in the 65th minute, but goalkeeper Ghani Cruz clipped his shot, resulting in a corner kick. Antek Sienkiel sent a left-footed in-swinger to the head of Leggett, who knocked it down in front and allowed Roseth to poke it past the keeper.

The Red Storm (4-6-3, 2-2-2) moved from seventh place to fifth. The top six teams in the final regular season standings qualify for the conference tournament.

Roseth’s game-winner, his first of the year, came off assists from Wesley Leggett and Antek Sienkiel. Leggett’s assist was his team-leading fourth of the season.

Einar Lye opened the scoring from St. John’s, converting a pass from Nigel Griffith in the 29th minute. Lye’s goal was his second in as many games and his third in the last five matches.

DePaul (3-4-5, 0-2-3) evened the score at 1-1 less than five minutes later thanks to a St. John’s own goal.

Inserted into the starting lineup in warmups following an injury to Ryan Foley, freshman goalkeeper Zenden Hart performed exceptionally despite the short notice, logging a season-high six saves to pick up his third collegiate win.

St. John’s outshot DePaul, 18-11, including an 8-6 edge in shots on goal.

The Red Storm will have a week off before its next match at Providence College on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m.
