MILWAUKEE - An unbelievable goal in the final second of regulation to help the men's soccer team claim the Milwaukee Cup Friday night earns sophomore Sebastian Jansson GoMarquette.com's Student-Athlete of the Week honors.

Marquette (1-0-0) reclaimed the Milwaukee Cup trophy, which had been in possession of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (0-1-0) since 2010.

Eric Pothast got a touch on the ball with five seconds left on the clock and directed it back toward the middle of the box where Jansson picked it out of clean air and his half-bicycle kick beat the UWM keeper with the crowd of 1,892 fans erupting as time expired.

It was Jansson's third career game winner.

The Golden Eagles also defeated Green Bay 1-0 on Sunday afternoon and return to action at 7:05 p.m. Friday against the University of Illinois-Chicago at Valley Fields.
