MILWAUKEE-- The Marquette University women's soccer team (2-5-1) returns home to Valley Fields Friday, Sept. 19, when it hosts No. 16 Kansas (8-0-0) for a 7 p.m. Central time tilt.
The Blue and Gold look to get back to their winning ways after falling to No.12 Texas A&M, 3-0, this past Sunday night in College Station, Texas. The Golden Eagles' defensive unit was unable to fend off the Aggies' persistent offensive attack, allowing Texas A&M to tally 24 shots and 13 shots on goal in the contest. Junior goalkeeper Amanda Engel collected a career-high ten saves in the match. Marquette collected 10 shots, and fell short of its season-average of shots per game by nearly three attempts against the Aggies.
The Kansas Jayhawks are off to the best start in program history, opening the season with eight-straight victories and an unblemished record of 8-0. Kansas took care of the University-Missouri Kansas City Kangaroos, 1-0, its last time out, continuing its 280-minute streak of shutting out its opponent. The Jayhawks have not trailed in a match this season, and have not allowed an opponent to record a goal in the past three matches.
Liana Salazar, the Big 12's second leading point scorer, paces the Jayhawks offensively with six goals and a total of 13 points already this season.
The matchup between the Golden Eagles and Jayhawks will be streamed live on GoMarquette.com and live stats will be provided via GameTracker.
Friday's action against the Jayhawks begins a four-game home stand for the Golden Eagles which carries on to beginning of BIG EAST Conference action and features Kansas, LSU, Creighton and Villanova.
