MOST COMMENTED

[MARQUETTE-CONNECTICUT] Marquette won its 11th straight game with a 3-2 win over No. 2 Connecticut Saturday night in front of 1,353 fans at Valley Fields. Andy Huftalin led the No. 7 Golden Eagles with two goals. They extended the nation’s longest win streak to open the 2012 season.

Marquette scored the opening goal in the 33rd minute when Kelmend Islami picked up the loose ball and played it back to Adam Lysak, who unleashed a rocket inside the right post.

Huftalin finished off Adam Hermsen's long cross inside the far post to give MU a 2-0 advantage in the 44th minute.

Jossimar Sanchez cut the deficit to 2-1 in the 77th minute but was injured when he collided with Golden Eagle goalie Charlie Lyon and was taken off the field in an ambulance with a serious leg injury..

In the 82nd minute, Huftalin finished off a wonderfully played cross to the far post by Lysak before UConn's Adria Beso scored to make the final score 3-2.
