The St. John’s University women’s soccer team hung tough with 22nd-ranked Xavier University to earn a 0-0 Big East draw at Belson Stadium in Queens, N.Y. on Sunday afternoon.
Xavier (11-2-3, 5-0-2) entered the match second in the conference with a league mark of 5-0-1. The Red Storm became the second team, along with then-No. 17 Georgetown University, to earn a point against a vaunted Musketeers squad.
The Johnnies (7-4-5, 4-2-2) extended their undefeated streak to four consecutive matches, earning two wins and two draws against BIG EAST opponents during that span.
Red Storm goalkeeper Gina Muzi continued her excellent, recording her seventh shutout of the season and her fourth in conference play. The senior out of Delafield, Wis. logged three saves to improve her save percentage to .776 and lower her goals-against average to 0.72.
The Johnnies will welcome conference foe Marquette University to Belson Stadium for their final home game of the regular season next Sunday at 1 p.m.
