Women's Soccer: #21 Marquette 4, Seton Hall 0

Marquette's women's soccer team started their weekend road trip in New Jersey off right, and I mean that quite literally. Rachael Sloan beat keeper Gina Maiorana to the right post in the third minute to start the scoring as Marquette (6-2-1, 2-0-0) defeated Seton Hall (6-5-0, 1-2-0) by a 4-0 margin.

The Golden Eagles struck again 10 minutes later when Rachel Brown headed home a Maegan Kelly corner kick for a 2-0 lead. That goal came on just the third shot of the match for MU, but that didn't stop Marquette from their usual offensive persistence. They finished the first half outshooting Seton Hall 7-5 and stepped up the pressure in the second half, resulting in a final shot tally of 17-8.

Marquette tacked on goals in the 38th minute from Kate Reigel (4th of the season) and again in the 80th minute when Ashley Stemmeler (2nd of the season) closed the scoring with a shot from 20 yards out.

Amanda Engel made her third straight start and made two saves in 67 minutes before Sofie Schunk closed out the rest of the shutout. The shutout is Marquette's 6th on the season.

Up Next: Rutgers makes up the second half of the New Jersey weekend on Sunday at noon.
