Women's Lacrosse in Southeastern Michigan for Two Games
Feb. 26, 2014
MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University women’s lacrosse team will make a trek to southeastern Michigan to conclude its four-match road swing to begin the season with a Friday game at first-year program the University of Michigan and a Sunday matchup with Detroit.
Following a year of firsts in 2013, Marquette will once again take part in history on Friday at 4 p.m. CT when it faces Michigan at Oosterbaan Field House in the first home game for the Wolverines (0-1).
MU will also take on Detroit on Sunday, March 2 at 11 a.m. CT in Beverly Hills, Mich., at the Detroit Country Day School Field House.
The Golden Eagles (0-2) are coming off a Tuesday loss to No. 4 Northwestern, 20-5, at the Lake Barrington Field House. Sophomore Hayley Baas recorded her fourth-career hat trick in the defeat while Marquette goalie Sarah Priem picked up 12 saves in net in just over 50 minutes of action. MU could not overcome a 21-6 disadvantage in draw controls or a 38-12 disparity in shots.
Freshmen Julianna Shearer and Amanda Bochinak also each added their second career goals for MU in the loss.
Michigan (0-1) enters Friday’s contest coming off a 20-7 defeat at the hands off Villanova on Feb. 22 and was led by freshman Tess Korten’s two goals and an assist in that game. Head coach Jennifer Ulehla leads the first-year program and was an assistant coach on the University of Florida’s first squad in 2010.
Detroit (0-2) is one of two squads Marquette defeated during its inaugural 2013 season. The Golden Eagles topped the Titans, 11-10, on Sunday, March 3 in Milwaukee behind a career-high four-goal outburst from Baas, while Anna Muzika scored the game winner with just 1:11 remaining in regulation. Detroit had led by as many as five goals in that contest.
The Titans have dropped contests at Ohio State and Louisville to open the 2014 campaign and have been out-scored 36-4. Redshirt senior attack Erin Campbell leads the squad with three goals, all of which came in the season opener against the Buckeyes.
Following the weekend of action, Marquette returns to Milwaukee and will host Duquesne on Friday, March 7 at 1 p.m. in its home opener at Valley Fields.
