Men's Soccer Loses to St. John's

 

November 7, 1998

Jamaica, N.Y. ---- The Notre Dame men's soccer team was eliminated from the 1998 BIG EAST Men's Soccer championship as the seventh-seeded Irish lost a 2-0 decision to the second-seeded St. John's Red Storm at DaSilva Field. With the loss, Notre Dame ends its season with a 9-6-3.

The 13th-ranked Red Storm scored both of their goals in the first half. Robert Wile put St. John's on the board 17:48 into the contest when he rebounded an off-the-post shot by Jimmy Buscemi past Irish goalkeeper Greg Velho. Paul Cusano added the second tally when he blasted a shot from 27 yards out and put it under the crossbar.

St. John's outshot Notre Dame 12-7 in the game. Velho made four saves in goal, while the Red Storm's Dan Popik notched his fifth shutout of the season and also registered four saves in the contest.

Earlier this season, the two teams played to a 1-1 tie at Notre Dame's Alumni Field. The Irish are now 0-3 at DaSilva Field.

St. John's, which improves to 12-4-3 on the season, advances to the semifinals of the BIG EAST Tournament and will play third-seeded Rutgers. The Red Storm will be making their eighth straight appearance in BIG EAST semifinals.
