  • JAMAICA, NY - Rutgers and St. John's recorded the sixth tie in the 16-match series between the arch rivals on Wednesday night in front of 1,344 fans at Belson Stadium in Jamaica, NY. Rutgers moves to 4-4-3 overall and 1-1-2 in the BIG EAST, while St. John's, ranked 13th nationally, is now 6-3-2 overall and 3-1-1 in league play.

    Sophomore Lubos Ancin (Burlington, NJ) was once again dominant in goal for the Scarlet Knights, making several outstanding stops against the high-pressure Red Storm attack. Ancin finished with four saves, registering his fifth shutout of the season. In his last match with the Red Storm in the semifinals of the BIG EAST Tournament, he finished with a career-high eight saves.

    Rutgers had its best chance to score when senior Chris Karcz (Clifton, NJ) took a Zach Simi (East Brunswick, NJ) cross and flicked a header from 12 yards out with 20 minutes remaining in regulation, but SJU goalkeeper Bill Gaudette made a diving stop to preserve the shutout.

    Simi found himself open at the top of the box late in regulation but his low shot was saved by Gaudette.

    "This was another fiercely contested match between these two rivals," said Rutgers head coach Bob Reasso. "We would've liked to get a victory, but a tie is a fair result tonight."

    St. John's held a 16-10 advantage in shots and a 6-2 edge in corner kicks.

    Rutgers returns home to face No. 12 Boston College on Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Yurcak Field.
