UNT soccer junior goalkeeper Jackie Kerestine is out for the year after suffering a knee injury in Sunday’s 4-2 loss to Virginia Tech University.

“It was a routine cross and I came out, attempted to catch it, bobbled it a little bit but quickly recovered,” Kerestine said to meangreensports.com. “A girl came out to follow up, but instead of the ball, she got my knee and hit me from the inside out.”

UNT athletics media relations could not identify the injury by law, but confirmed Kerestine had undergone an MRI this morning. The team hopes Kerestine will be ready to play by the start of the 2014 season.

Kerestine’s replacement is sophomore goalkeeper Haley Riley, who started the season opener against Texas Southern and was credited with the win. She played 190 minutes in six games her freshman year.

“She’s very capable coming in and leading our team to another conference championship,” Kerestine said to meangreensports.com. “If she wasn’t capable, she wouldn’t be on the team.”

The injury comes on the wake of the Mean Green receiving votes to be considered a top-25 team in the nation. Riley and the Mean Green will face Sam Houston State University in Denton on Friday, starting at 7 p.m.
