Marquette's women's soccer team headed down to the northern suburbs of Chicago yesterday for a match against Northwestern and came out with a 2-0 win, their third straight shutout victory of the season.

Marquette (3-0-0) grabbed control of the match right away in the first, outshooting Northwestern (2-2-0) 13-1 in the first half. The Golden Eagles made those shots count, getting four on frame, including what turned out to be a game winning header from Ally Miller in the 29th minute.

(Aside: That's Miller's second goal in as many games. If she keeps this up, she's going to have to hope that the Big East coaches consider "the best defense is a good offense" as a legitimate reason to give her the postseason version of her preseason defensive player of the year honor.)

The shot totals evened out a bit in the second half (5-4 favoring Marquette), but Marquette was able to keep the ball in on their end and didn't allow a single corner kick for the entire match. Megan Jaskowiak added some insurance in the 72nd minute, but Sofie Schunk didn't need it, making three saves for her third shutout on the season. Maegan Kelly doesn't have a goal on the season yet, but she picked up her team leading third and fourth assists by chipping in on both Marquette goals.

Up Next: Marquette returns to the Valley on Monday for a Labor Day matinee against Central Michigan at 1pm.
