C. Nortey had MU's lone goal vs UWM. - MarquetteImages.com

UWM reasserted their control of the Milwaukee Cup in the 41st meeting between the two teams.

An Engelmann Stadium record crowd of 3,312 was on hand for the contesting of the Milwaukee Cup on Friday night, and those in the stands favoring black along side their gold colors went home happy, as Milwaukee defeated #10/#12 Marquette, 2-1.

Declan Rodriguez got things started right on the 60 second mark, getting a good read on a Laurie Bell free kick and sending it to the far post and past MU's Charlie Lyon. C. Nortey made his presence felt in the 17th minute as he got on the scoreboard in his first official match back from injuries that cost him all of the 2012 season. The ball bounced off of a UWM defender right on the back line, which allowed the native Ghanaian to level things at 1.

In the 27th minute, the Panthers retook the lead when Austin Toth swiped a page from hockey and drilled a one-timer into the back of the net off of a Rami Younes cross.

Marquette would have their chances in the second half, outshooting UWM 7-3 and taking five corner kicks, but they couldn't find the back of the net. Sebastian Jansson had a spectacular chance in the 83rd minute from inside the 18 yard box, but UWM keeper Liam Anderson was able to react to the sudden change in direction and tipped it up and over the crossbar.

Up Next: Marquette plays their home opener against UW-Green Bay on Sunday afternoon at 4pm. The Phoenix opened their season with a 84 minute rain shortened 3-2 win over DePaul on Friday.
