INDIANOLA, Iowa - Simpson had some quality chances in the second half but couldn't capitalize in a 1-0 loss to St. John's on Sunday evening.

Zane Heinselman scored the lone goal of the contest early in the second half and the Johnnies (2-0) held on down the stretch against Simpson.

The Storm (1-1) controlled play for most of the second half, outshooting St. John's 7-3 in the final 45 minutes.

Mitchell White had an opportunity off a set piece when Marcus Varnum found him streaking toward the goal. White's attempt at a one-timer went high, however.

Tyler Neumann produced another quality chance on a run down the right side. He created some separation from the defender but couldn't turn the corner as his shot went wide.

Heinselman's goal came off a coner kick that ricocheted off the far post. He collected the rebound and broke the scoreless tie.
