11.6.11 In Related News: Big East Men's Soccer Quarterfinal

At 1 pm this afternoon, Marquette's men's soccer team makes their 2nd straight appearance in the Big East Championship quarterfinals as they host the #13 ranked Louisville Cardinals. The first 150 students to arrive at Valley Fields will receive a FREE "Welcome To The Valley" Tshirt.

Marquette (9-7-2, 7-2-0) earned a first round bye and the right to host a quarterfinals match by winning the Blue Division. Louisville (11-5-2, 3-4-2) started the year ranked #1 in the country after falling to Akron 1-0 in the 2010 National Championship. But they've had their share of struggles and only finished in 4th place in the Red Division. However, a return to the postseason seems to have lit a fire under the Cardinals, as they dumped the Blue Division's 6 seed and #23 in the country Providence 5-0 on Thursday night behind Colin Rolfe's first career hat trick.

Rolfe's hat trick thrust him into the team lead in goals and points, as 8 different Cardinals have score multiple goals on the season. Andre Bordeaux has played all but 8:43 in net for Louisville this season and comes in to this match riding a scoreless streak of 327:12 while standing 2nd only in the Big East to UConn's Andre Blake in Goals-Against Average.

I'm going to be there to cheer on the Golden Eagles. Are you?
