The Wildcats scored two unanswered goals in the second half, including the match-winner in the 86th minute. The Golden Eagles controlled much of the match, holding possession and recording a 20-7 advantage in shots. MU also had eight corner kicks without surrendering any.

Freshman defender Patrick Seagrist netted his first career goal in the 51st minute, giving MU a 1-0 lead at the time. Seagrist volleyed a pass ahead to sophomore Toby Howell, who then found a hustling Seagrist, who cut left and fired a blast that deflected off the keeper and into the back of the net.

Marquette leads the all-time series versus Seton Hall with a 5-3-3 record. All five of the Golden Eagles’ victories come from the last six meetings.

The Golden Eagles blanked Seton Hall in last season’s matchup, winning 1-0 at Valley Fields. Redshirt senior David Selvaggi scored Marquette’s lone goal in the 52nd minute of play off a feed from redshirt senior C. Nortey. Seton Hall had its fair share of opportunities as the team attempted 14 shots in the match. A strong effort from Luis Barraza helped the team fend off Seton Hall’s attempts to tie the match, making six saves in the shutout win.
