St. John’s on top of Big Apple women’s soccer

TimesLedger Newspapers

The St. John’s women’s soccer team took its place as the top program in New York City Sunday night as the Red Storm capped off its two-game, two-borough road trip with a 2-1 overtime win at Columbia.

Junior defender Sandra Osborn scored the game-winner with a penalty kick in the 100th minute, her first career goal.

Sunday’s game at Columbia marked the end of non-conference play for St. John’s (4-3-0), as the Red Storm hosts Providence Thursday to start the Big East schedule.

“It was important for us to win this weekend against two good teams,” remarked head Coach Ian Stone. “We were fortunate to get the win on Friday against Fordham as they went on to defeat Maryland, who is ranked, tonight … We showed we can defend more effectively and we are playing with more confidence, which is important going into Big East play.”

Columbia (1-3-0) started on the offensive first, getting a shot off in the first two minutes of play. A shot by Columbia’s Erin Falk was turned away by Red Storm rookie goalkeeper Ellen Conway (3-2-0), who finished the game with four saves.
