Men's Soccer: Wisconsin 1, Marquette 0

Midfielder Bryan Ciesiulka made his second start of the season, and the first since the opener vs UWM. - MarquetteImages.com

It's time to play a round of It Could Be Worse!

Marquette lost to Wisconsin last night on a 71st minute goal from senior Nick Janus. The Golden Eagles were unable to properly clear the ball, which led to Nick Prince being able to lay one in from 25 yards out for Janus to head past Charlie Lyon for what turned into the game winning goal.

It sucks to lose to Wisconsin in anything.

But!

IT COULD BE WORSE!

For example, Marquette could have suffered the fate of St. John's. On Tuesday night, the #14/#11 Red Storm needed an 87th minute goal from Sean Sepe to equalize things with Old Dominion at 1, but ended up losing in overtime on a penalty kick that preseason Keeper Of The Year Rafael Diaz was unable to save.

But!

IT COULD BE WORSE!

Last night, #3/#4 Creighton and #20/#22 Saint Louis played to a scoreless tie through 45 minutes. Then, in the 48th minute, SLU's Filip Pavisic was issued a red card, sending the Billikens to just 10 men for the remainder of the match. Here's Creighton's Sports Information Director explaining what happened:

Then, in the 51st minute, Jays keeper Connor Sparrow, making his second start of the year, misplayed a goal kick, leading to SLU's Ryan Sweetin blasting a shot into the top left of the net, giving the Billikens a shorthanded goal. Sweetin's goal turned into the game winner as the Bluejays were unable score even with a man advantage for nearly 40 minutes.

Losing 1-0 on a shorthanded goal, even on the road to a ranked team? WOOF.

So, really, the Badgers making a nice play to beat MU? Not so bad, in comparison.

Still don't like it, though.

Up Next: Marquette finishes up a three match road swing this Saturday against Villanova (4-4-1, 0-1-0 Big East).
