The Saint John’s Johnnies open the season against the Saint Cloud State Huskies this Friday, February 23rd. This season opener for both squads will be played at Gagliardi Dome at Saint John’s University at 7:00 PM. Last year, these two teams met in what ended being a 15-4 win for the Johnnies. Saint Cloud finished the season 1-6 last year, while the Johnnies went 7-8 overall.
After a disappointing end to last season in heartbreaking 10-9 loss to Concordia Irvine, the Johnnies look to get some momentum early in the season. One fresh face to keep an eye out for is Johnnie midfielder Boone Almquist. Another player to watch is sophomore Jordan Roller, who led the Huskies in goals scored with 12 last spring.
Saint John’s University will also face off against Mankato State University on Saturday, February 24th at 5:30pm and the SJU Alumni at 7:30pm.
