PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Friday, October 5, the Providence College women's soccer team hosted BIG EAST rival Marquette in an afternoon cap at Glay Field.

The Friars currently hold a BIG EAST record of 3-4-0 (8-6-1 overall) while the Golden Eagles remain unbeaten in BIG EAST play, 6-0-0 (10-2-1 overall).
The Golden Eagles struck first in the seventh minute when Ally Miller finished a corner serviced by teammate Maegan Kelly. Three minutes later Marquette tallied its second goal of the game when Kelly finished a loose ball in the box.
