St. john’s hosts seton hall in b.E. home opener •

The St. John’s men’s soccer team opens the home portion of its BIG EAST schedule on Saturday night, playing host to the Pirates of Seton Hall at 7 p.m. on Belson Stadium.



Dating back to 1999, the Red Storm is 11-2-4 in its last 17 BIG EAST home openers. Last season, the Johnnies played Marquette to a scoreless draw in their conference debut on Sept. 26.



Despite allowing his second goal of the season in the Red Storm’s loss to Quinnipiac on Tuesday night, redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Andrew Withers still ranks among the nation’s best in both goals against average and save percentage. Through games played on Sept. 21, Withers ranked sixth in goals against average (0.38) and seventh in save percentage (.875) among NCAA

The Red Storm also ranks 13th nationally in shutout percentage, registering clean sheets in 57 percent of their contests this

Residence halls, training rooms and weight rooms are off limits to the media. The St. John’s locker room is closed to the media following the game. The team is allowed the customary 10-minute cooling off period and time with the coaching staff to meet with the team after each game. The St. John’s Athletic Communications staff will secure coach and student-athletes for postgame interviews that will be held on the field.
