First off, no, not that final four.
Nelson Becerra’s game-winning goal on a penalty kick in overtime propelled No. 3 St. John’s to a 3-2 victory over No. 6 Indiana Saturday evening at Belson Stadium, sending the team to the Final Four of College Cup 2008 in Frisco, Texas. The Storm came back from two goals down with under 10 minutes to play in the second half to send the game to overtime on goals by Joel Gustaffson and Sverre Wegge Gundhus. Ofori Sarkode (36th minute) and Eric Alexander (72nd minute) each contributed goals for Indiana.
