Women's Soccer Suffers First Big East Loss Since 2011

And it was quite the doozy of a loss.

Four second half goals by Georgetown snapped Marquette's 31 Big East match unbeaten streak as the Hoyas won 4-0.  It's the first loss for the Golden Eagles in conference action since they fell to West Virginia back in the early goings of the league slate in 2011.

The first half of the match ended without a goal, but Marquette had carried the advantage.  They outshot Georgetown 7-2 and forced Emma Newins to make four saves, including a fantastic effort to keep Mary Luba off the board in the game's opening minutes.

Things turned around quickly for the Hoyas in the second half.  Daphne Corboz found her younger sister Rachel with a cross just minutes into the second half for the game's opening goal.  The elder Corboz struck again with her passing in the 68th minute when she found Emily Morgan for her first goal of the season.

Georgetown tacked on two more goals in the 78th and 80th minutes.  Rachel Corboz had her second of the match from 12 yards out, and Taylor Pak ended the day's activities when she poked in a loose ball off of a corner kick.

The loss drops Marquette out of the pack at the top of the Big East table, leaving DePaul, St. John's, and Georgetown deadlocked at 13 points.  The Golden Eagles are in fourth place with 10 points, leading fifth place Providence by four points.

Up Next: Marquette returns to Valley Fields for their next contest.  They'll face Seton Hall (3-7-4, 0-3-2 Big East) on Thursday night, which will be broadcast on the Big East Digital Network.
