Men's Soccer: One More For The State Title

Eric Pothast (seen here against Louisville last year) was the difference for Marquette on Sunday afternoon.

After Sebastian Jansson's heroics on Friday night (more on that from our correspondant later), Marquette's men's soccer team headed north for a Sunday afternoon match against UW-Green Bay. The Golden Eagles had a strong attack to start out, but it seemed as if things were not going to break their way. On their first seven shots, three hit the frame of the net and ricocheted away and three more were stopped by Phoenix keeper Ryan Wehking. But after a Paul Dillon free kick, Eric Pothast was able to rip home an Axel Sjoberg volley to give MU the only goal they needed for a 1-0 win in the 30th minute.

The second half shot totals (8-6, favoring MU) matched the first half, but Marquette's chances were much better than Green Bay's. Charlie Lyon only had to make one save in the 44th minute to keep a clean sheet while his teammates forced Wehking to make seven saves to keep UWGB close.

With the win, Marquette only needs a win over Wisconsin on September 26th to complete the Wisconsin Division 1 trifecta and claim a 2012 state title. In the meantime, they'll take on UIC next on Friday night at Valley Fields.
