Marshall Soccer Rewarded for Defense

The plaques showing the team's accomplishments.

March 20, 2013

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall's men's soccer team led the nation in two statistical categories and this week, was rewarded for its defensive efforts by the NCAA.

Part of the reason the Thundering Herd went 11-5-1 this past fall was due to its great defensive play. No team in the country had a better save percentage than Marshall which ranked first with a save percentage of 0.898. The man in goal for most of those saves was Daniel Withrow who finished the season first in the NCAA with a save percentage of 0.895.

This week, Marshall received two plaques from the NCAA to show off its accomplishments.

In addition to those nation-leading marks, the Herd ranked third in shutout percentage (0.59) and team goals against average (0.52). Withrow also ranked third in goals against average (0.524).
