The Wildcats were in rare form during this contest, and neither the rainy weather or the St. John’s defense could cool off the red-hot Villanova offense.

While the Red Storm was only able to muster 3 goals in the contest, the Wildcats had eight different players score on their way to 18 goals. #19 Jack Curran was unstoppable in this contest, scoring a career best 8 goals.

Not only were the 8 goals a career best for Curran, but they also tied the team record for most goals scored in a game and pushed him to 42 goals on the season, another team record! Curran can expand on his record when Villanova faces Providence in their last regular season game.
