The Marquette Golden Eagles faltered on the road again, losing 3-0 to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor Monday night.

They have now dropped their last three games after starting the 2018 campaign 2-0. Their record is now 2-3 overall and 0-2 on the road.

Marquette’s offense has been nowhere to be found ever since they scored seven goals in their first two games of the season. They have only scored one goal in the last three games and have been struggling mightily to generate shots on goal.

They were outshot 14-7 during the match, and freshman goalkeeper Cedrick Stern struggled in net. He allowed three goals and only made one save. The defense in front of him did not help much, allowing Michigan plenty of opportunities to cash in a goal.

The second half was better for the Golden Eagles defensively, as they only surrendered one shot on goal compared to four in the first half.

The team struggled to keep its composure throughout the game, picking up five yellow cards.

The Golden Eagles will look to rebound this Saturday at home in their BIG EAST opener against Villanova.
