Marquette Moves to .500
Entering the weekend with a 0-2 record, Marquette quickly evened things out with a pair of wins on Friday and Sunday. The Golden Eagles scored a pair of road victories, beginning with Michigan (12-10) on Friday before wrapping up the weekend with a 15-9 win at Detroit on Sunday afternoon. Julianna Shearer led the offensive effort with eight goals and an assist, with all 12 shots she took being on target. Sarah Priem was credited with both wins in the cage, making six saves combined and a showing a .273 save percentage and 9.44 goals against average. Amanda Bochniak dished a BIG EAST season-high five assists in Sunday’s matinee.

Needing A Little Extra Time
No. 14/15 Georgetown won at No. 19/18 Princeton on Saturday, the Hoyas just needed a few extra minutes to get it done. Knotted at 16 at the end of two periods, Caroline Tarziane notched the game winner at 4:58 in the extra period to seal the win for GU. The 2-1 Hoyas had nine different players register goals, include hat tricks by Corrine Etchison and Meghan Farrell. Barb Black and Maddy Fisher split time in goal, with Black getting credit for the win.

Playing Hero
Rutgers narrowly saved itself from needing that extra period like Georgetown, thanks to a game-winning goal by Chrissy Shreiber. Delaware evened the match at 7-7 with just over a minute to play before Shreiber scored the dagger with 23 seconds left on the clock, picking the perfect time to record her first goal of the season.  

Louisville Keeps Rolling
The Cardinals won their fourth in a row on Saturday, defeating No. 18/RV Denver 12-7. Louisville, which is receiving votes in the IWLCA Coaches poll, earned the upset win thanks in part to four goals by Faye Brust, and a stingy Cardinal defense which allowed just 15 total shots, including just six through the first 30 minutes. Ashley Herbst played all 60 minutes in goal, stopping five shots.



City of Brotherly Love
The BIG EAST’s two Philadelphia-based squads scored wins on Saturday, as Villanova defeated Bucknell 10-4, while Temple edged Oregon 10-8. The Wildcat defense shined, holding the Bison scoreless and limited to just five shots through the first period. On the other hand, Temple cruised thanks to a six-goal effort by Jaymie Tabor, the third time in her career she reached the six-goal mark and second time she did it against the Ducks.
