Women's Soccer: #21 Marquette 2, Rutgers 0

The Golden Eagles close out their first road trip to New Jersey in six years with another win!

Marquette's women's soccer team must have found out how the men's team had dealt with DePaul on Saturday night and decided that they wanted to do the same to Rutgers on Sunday afternoon. Just as the men's team did all their scoring against DePaul in the first half, the women's team scored twice in the first half against Rutgers to earn a 2-0 win. The shutout is Marquette's seventh of the season and the first full time shutout of freshman keeper Amanda Engel's collegiate career.

Marquette (7-2-1, 3-0-0) already had a 6-1 shot advantage in the match when Taylor Madigan received a Cara Jacobson pass and buried it in the net from five yards out to give MU a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. Maegan Kelly took the next two shots of the match, first hitting the crossbar and then putting one just underneath the crossbar in the 23rd minute to register her second goal of the season.

At that point, Marquette already had a 9-1 shot advantage to go with their 2-0 lead and did what amounts to parking the bus for them: They still outshot Rutgers 10-8 over the remaining 67 minutes. Rutgers (8-4-0, 1-3-0) did challenge Engel in the second half as she had to make four saves to finish with five for the contest to wrap up the clean sheet.
