Men’s soccer brief

After defeating Georgetown Oct. 17, the Marquette men’s soccer team suffered two straight losses. The team fell to Wisconsin, 2-0, on Wednesday in Madison and suffered a shocking defeat to lowly Providence, 1-0, in Rhode Island Saturday.

Both of Wisconsin’s goals came in the second half. The first goal came unassisted in the 69th minute and the second came off a set piece with five minutes left.

In the game against the Friars, the lone goal came in the 55th minute from a through ball at the top of the box that was then shot into the lower left corner. Marquette had only nine shots throughout the game, managing just three on goal.

The Golden Eagles still have a chance to make it to the Big East Tournament as long as they put away Pittsburgh in their final home game of the season on October 31.

Marquette’s final game is against Connecticut in Storrs. The Huskies are currently in first place in the Big East Blue Division standings.
