MADISON, Wis. - The Marquette University women's soccer team used goals from Lisa Philbin and Kate Reigleto shutout Wisconsin, 2-0, in exhibition play Saturday evening at the McClimon Soccer Complex.

"We learned a lot about ourselves tonight and put together a nice performance," said head coach Markus Roeders. "Wisconsin is a good team, and it ended up being an entertaining match. This group has put a tremendous amount of work in this summer to prepare for the year plus pre-season has been tiring, both mentally and physically."

For the game, Marquette used 20 players in the game and was able to experiment with many different combinations on the field. Both Natalie Kulla and Sofie Schunk saw time in net and combined for two saves in the shutout. The Golden Eagles ended the game out-shooting the Badgers, 10-3.

"We have a lot of talent and the brand of soccer is very entertaining. Today was a chance to improve, learn about us and compete against another team. We accomplished our goal but we have to get better. It's time to refine our game, get healthy and be 100 percent fresh for Friday night," added Roeders.

Philbin scored Marquette's first goal in the 26th minute. Reigle served the ball in from the right side and Philbin was able to finish with her head past Michele Dalton to the far post.

The Golden Eagles continued to dominate possession in the first half and finished the frame with a 6-1 shots advantage.

Reigle gave Marquette a 2-0 advantage at the 66:42 mark. After a Marquette corner kick bounced around inside Wisconsin's 18-yard box, freshman Haley Fritzlen gathered the ball and sent it on target where Reigle headed it in for the score.

Following the conclusion of its preseason training camp, Marquette will host Western Michigan on Friday, Aug. 19 and Northwestern on Sunday, Aug. 21. Both games will kick-off at Valley Fields at 7:30 p.m.
