The Marquette women’s soccer team will be without its veteran senior keeper Amanda Engel for Wednesday’s pivotal Milwaukee Cup match.

Engel was booked with a red card in the 56th minute of a brutal 5-1 loss at Louisiana State University on Sunday. The booking, which led to Engel’s ejection from the game was her second this season inside the 18-yard box. A player can’t play in the next match following a red card due to NCAA regulations.

This will be Engel’s first missed start in blue and gold since Marquette’s BIG EAST opener against Pittsburgh on Sept. 13, 2012. Sloane Carlson, a freshman from St. Louis, will make her first career start against UW-Milwaukee.

Wednesday’s match against rival UWM will mark the 24th meeting between the two sides. The teams have been historically close in talent, with the Golden Eagles holding a slight 9-8-6 advantage over the Panthers.

“We know Wednesday night’s going to be a heated game just because of the history and being crosstown,” head coach Markus Roeders said. “Hopefully at some point we can unleash everything that is good with our squad.”

Last season’s derby was perhaps the craziest game in recent memory for either side. UWM held a 4-0 lead after 68 minutes at Valley Fields and Marquette seemingly lost hope. Then a penalty goal from now-graduated Mary Luba and three succeeding goals from Caroline Fink, Liz Bartels and Heather Handwork knotted things up at 4-4. Milwaukee’s Sydney Senn ended the comeback chance when she scored the game-winner in the 89th minute.

UWM is 4-3-1 this season, including a recent 9-0 shellacking of Chicago State University, who is currently 0-9. They lost their last match, 3-2, against Loyola Chicago.

Marquette is desperate for a win as they hold a meager 3-4-2 record and look ahead to BIG EAST competition starting Sunday against Creighton. Both games can be heard live on Marquette Radio via the “Listen Live” button on the homepage.
