Broncos stun No. 2 regional seed
[MARQUETTE-WESTERN MICHIGAN: Women] Aubrey Sudomier's goal in the 84th minute gave Western Michigan a 1-0 win at No. 2
regional seed Marquette, snapping the Big East champions' 13-game winning streak and their home unbeaten streak that dated back to October 2011.
Sudomier fired a rocket past Marquette
goalkeeper Sofie Schunk and into the far side of the net for her sixth goal of the season.
"Marquette are an absolutely fantastic team" said WMU
coach Nate Norman, "and I thought we did a great job out there against them and I'm just so proud of our team."
Goalkeeper Michelle Watson made five saves to earn the shutout.
"Michelle was great," added Norman. "She caught so many crosses to keep Marquette from getting
chances. The cover and the organization of our back line was fantastic. Kylie [Nylen], Megan [Putnam] and Liz [Abro] were also great at getting back from the midfield."
Western Michigan will move into the second round Friday against Notre Dame.
