Western Michigan stuns No. 8 Marquette to advance in tournament

MILWAUKEE -- A goal in the 84th minute by Aubrey Sudomier and a great defensive performance led to a 1-0 upset by the Western Michigan against No. 8 Marquette at MU's Valley Fields on Saturday night.

With just six minutes remaining in the game Sudomier got the ball and took it into the box on the right side and fired a rocket past MU goalkeeper Sofie Schunk and into the far side of the net for her sixth goal of the season.

With the lead the Broncos were able to defend for the final six minutes to complete the upset.

"Marquette [is] an absolutely fantastic team and I thought We did a great job out there against them and I'm just so proud of our team," head coach Nate Norman said.

Defensively the team held strong despite being outshot 17-6 overall and 5-2 on goal. Senior goalkeeper Michelle Watson made all five saves needed to earn the shutout.
