Maegan Kelly continues her strong play with a goal and two assists to keep MU undefeated in the Big East!

Yesterday in Rhode Island, the Marquette women's soccer team adapted the famous phrase "vote early and vote often" to soccer purposes yesterday afternoon to earn a 5-0 win over Providence.

Ally Miller headed in a Maegan Kelly corner kick in the 7th minute, Kelly followed with her own goal in the 10th minute, and Vanessa Legault-Cordisco followed with one of her own 71 seconds later to put Marquette (10-2-1, 6-0-0 Big East) up 3-0 in less than 11 full minutes. Providence (8-6-1, 3-4-0 Big East) was able to put a lid on Marquette's scoring for the next 18 minutes until Lisa Philbin finished a Kelly cross to give MU a 4-0 lead in the 30th minute that they would carry into halftime. Mady Vicker added a second half goal off a rebound of her own shot given up by Providence's Megan Sweeney. It was the only goal given up in the match by Sweeney, who had replaced starting keeper Jessica Goudreault at halftime.

Marquette used a 13-1 shot advantage in the first half to take a 23-8 advantage for the match. While the Friars were able to get more chances in the second half, that might be chalked up to Marquette getting 21 different players at least 16 minutes of action.

One side note to the match: Marquette's Sofie Schunk replaced Amanda Engel at halftime to combine for the sixth straight shutout and 10th of the season for the Golden Eagles, but Schunk was issued a red card in the 89th minute, forcing Engel to play the remainder of the match. Marquette's Luke LeNoble informs us that the card was for creating contact in a 1 on 1 opportunity in the box by Providence's Jacquelyn Desrosiers. I don't have any further information because Providence is not providing a play by play If I follow my NCAA rules right, this means Schunk will be suspended for Sunday's match with Connecticut.
