Wildcats give Lenahan 250th career win

[MARQUETTE-NORTHWESTERN] Joey Calistri scored on a blast from 20 yards in the 31st minute and Northwestern held on to beat No. 7 seed Marquette, 1-0, at Valley Fields and move into the round of 16 at Louisville on Sunday.
Northwestern, which had a shot cleared off the MU goal line in the opening minutes of the match, took the lead when Scott Lakin played a ball back to Calistri, who needed only one touch to fire into the top right corner.

“I thought it was a great game," said Northwestern coach Tim Lenahan, who captured his 250th career victory with Sunday's win. "I thought the first half we really played well, particularly the first 15 or 20 minutes, and Joey made a big play and then we defended like absolute warriors at the end of the game. When they were lumping service after service in there, we were hanging on for dear life but our guys were just absolute warriors. Marquette is a great team, they’ve had an awesome season, their coach has just done a remarkable job in the last seven years that he’s been here. But we were able to make a play and then we were really battling at the end of the game to move onto the Sweet 16, so it’s a good day for Northwestern soccer.”
Marquette, which hadn’t been shutout in 20 matches this season, only put two shots on frame Sunday and weren’t able to record a shot on goal until the 76th minute of play.
The Golden Eagles' 16 wins tied a single-season program record.
