  • JAMAICA, NY - The previously-undefeated Rutgers University men’s soccer team, ranked eighth in the country, dropped a 3-1 contest to 15th-ranked St. John’s tonight at Belson Stadium in Jamaica, NY.

    The Red Storm scored twice in the first 12 minutes of the match and built a 3-0 halftime lead en route to their second-straight win over the Scarlet Knights. With the loss, RU is now 2-1, while SJU evens its record at 2-2.

    Despite the loss, Rutgers does not loose any ground to St. John’s in the conference standings as the game was not part of RU’s 10-match BIG EAST schedule for 2003.

    SJU midfielder Simone Salinno headed in a ball from the far post off a free kick to open a 1-0 lead in the ninth minute. Less than three minutes later the Red Storm were on the attack again with Matt Groenwald recorded an unassisted goal in the 12th minute.

    St. John’s added its third score of the match in the 35th minute, as Groenwald tallied his second goal of the match on a hard shot from 20 yards out that hit the back of the net.

    With Rutgers pressing, senior Josh Gros (Mechanicsburg, PA) added a goal in the 67th minute, heading in a cross to cut the SJU lead to two goals at 3-1.

    St. John’s outshot RU, 13-10, although Rutgers held a 3-2 edge in corners. Senior Scott Conway (Aston, PA) made six saves, including back-to-back stops in the final minute of action.
