Women's Soccer: #24/19 Marquette 2, George Mason 0

This one's against Central Michigan, but you still get to see what an Ally Miller (3) header in the box looks like. (via Maggie Casey/MarquetteImages.com)

Marquette women's soccer returned to the Valley after three consecutive road matches, and as they did against Pitt on Thursday night, they used a heavy shot advantage to defeat George Mason 2-0. MU (5-2-1) ripped off 22 shots split evenly between the two halves compared to just three for the Patriots (4-5-0).

While the Golden Eagles did have a heavy shot advantage in the first half, it only led to GMU keeper Lyndse Hokansen making four saves. The game remained scoreless until a Emily Jacobson corner kick found a flying Ally Miller for a header goal in the 51st minute. Marquette was not content to just park the bus and wait out the rest of the match. Taylor Madigan got MU a second goal when she cleaned up a stray ball off of a Maegan Kelly shot that Hokansen had to leap to deflect. The goals were the third of the season for both Miller and Madigan.

Amanda Engel got her second straight start in net and needed to make just one save before Sofie Schunk replaced her in the 74th minute. Schunk finished out the team clean sheet, making one save along the way.

Up Next: Marquette heads to New Jersey on Thursday night to take on Seton Hall.
