PRINCETON, N.J. (10/14/13) - The Princeton men's soccer team brings a three-game unbeaten streak to New York on Tuesday, Oct. 15 to meet No. 22 ranked St. John's. The teams will kick off at 7 p.m., live on ESPN3.

St. John's has won the last two meetings in the series and holds a 3-1-2 edge since the teams first met in 1995. Princeton's win came in that first meeting, 1-0, a year it went 13-6 and reached the NCAA Tournament, two years removed from its final four appearance.

Princeton is 4-5-1 overall and is riding a three-game unbeaten streak after a 0-0 tie at Brown on Saturday. Prior to that the Tigers topped Drexel 1-0 and Dartmouth 2-1 on the road, it's first road win of the season. The Ivy League leading scorer Thomas Sanner has 13 points on six goals and one assists. Junior Cameron Porter isn't far behind with four goals and two assists for 10 points. He has twice been named the Ivy League Player of the Week and ranks in the top four in points in the league. Sophomore Nico Hurtado has been effective from the midfield as well with two goals and one assist for five points. Senior Seth MacMillan is coming off of a six-save performance at Brown, which matched his career high. He has two shutouts and a 1.62 goals against average and a .605 save percentage across nine games.

St. John's is ranked No. 22 in the latest NSCAA poll with a 6-5-1 overall record. The Johnnies started the season off strong going 5-1 but have hit a snag lately, going 1-4-1 in their last six games. Most recently the squad lost a 2-0 game at Villanova. St. John's has done well when playing at home with a 6-1 mark. Leading the team offensively is Sean Sepe. Sepe has 11 points on five goals, two of which were game winners, and one assist. Both of Jimmy Mulligan's goals have been game-winning goals and he adds two helpers for six points. Daniel Herrera is next in the scoring column with five points on two goals and one assist. Rafael Diaz has played every minute in goal. He has four shutouts, a 0.95 GAA and a .782 save percentage, allowing 12 goals on 55 shots.
