Bartels Garners Consecutive BIG EAST Weekly Honors
Oct. 19, 2015
NEW YORK – Junior Liz Bartels of the Marquette University women’s soccer team was named to the BIG EAST Conference Weekly Honor Roll on Monday after scoring the tying goal in MU’s 2-2 draw at Georgetown on Sunday afternoon.
The junior forward’s equalizer came in the 73rd minute with the Golden Eagles playing a woman down. Bartels initial shot was blocked at the goal line and she was able to get her foot on the ricochet and loft her second shot over the GU defender and into the net for her third goal of the season. Marquette trailed 2-0 in the 66th minute before Ashley Handwork and Bartels knotted the match at 2-2 with tallies just over a minute-and-a-half apart.
Bartels, an All-BIG EAST Preseason Team honoree, has now been named to the honor roll three times this season, the most of any MU player.
The Golden Eagles will play their last home game of the regular season on Thursday, Oct. 22 against Villanova at Valley Fields with kickoff slated for 7 p.m. Central time. The match will be broadcast live on the BIG EAST Digital Network and feature a pre-match ceremony honoring the MU careers of seniors Amanda Engel, Jacie Jermier and Ann Marie Lynch.
