Entering today’s game, Marquette women’s lacrosse is off to their best BIG EAST start in program history and is tied for first place with Florida.

That start got even better following a 19-3 win over Butler (1-11, 0-4 BIG EAST) to remain undefeated in the BIG EAST.

The Golden Eagles scored 12 goals in the first half to the secure victory. Senior midfielder Allison Lane, junior midfielder Grace Gabriel and senior attacker Charlotte McGuire all earned hat tricks in the first half. That started with Gabriel’s 45th goal of the year, which ignited a 5-0 run in the first 10 minutes. Junior midfielder Logan Dobratz, senior attackers Riley Hill and Charlotte McGuire and Lane all scored on the run.

Butler attacker Ashley Guerra then sparked a 3-0 run for the Bulldogs, but Marquette dominated possession after that to take a 7-0 run and end the half with a 12-3 lead. McGuire, Gabriel and Lane all scored two goals on the run, while Dobratz put in one with one second left.

Gabriel scored back-to-back goals to start the second half, and the Golden Eagles never looked back. Lane, sophomore attacker Hannah Ignacio and midfielder Megan Menzuber also scored to help Marquette maintain a double-digit lead. Gabriel earned a sock trick in the win against the Bulldogs.

Marquette goalkeeper Julianna Horning had another impressive game, recording seven saves in 40 minutes of play. Freshman Sophia Leva took over in goal in the second half and made one stop.

The Golden Eagles will return to Valley Fields Sunday to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores at 12 p.m.
