@HerdMSoccer Starts C-USA Play Against Gamecocks|
Sept. 25, 2014
MARSHALL AT SOUTH CAROLINA
HAVE YOU HERD?
The Thundering Herd placed second at the Aces ProRehab Classic in Evansville, Ind. After losing the first game of the Classic to Bradley, 4-0, the Herd was able to turn things around and win 1-0 over host Evansville in the final game of the tournament, giving Marshall its first win of the season. A 38th minute goal by Sophomore Daniel Jodah (Mississauga, Ontario) was enough to lift the Herd to its first victory of 2014 right before C-USA action. Sophomore midfielder Ryan Forde (London, England), Junior midfielder Nick Edginton (Wellington, New Zealand) and Junior defender Connor Marino (Hopewell, NJ) were named to the ProRehab All-Tournament team.
SCOUTING THE GAMECOCKS
South Carolina has scored 9 goals off of 102 shots. In contrast, the Herd has just 67 shots and three goals.
Last season's result was a 0-0 tie after two overtime periods in Huntington.
THE GRAY AREA
"South Carolina is a quality team and always has been. They got off to a really good start. Their coach and I go way back. They have great facilities, some of the best in the nation."
"Having our first Conference USA game on the road will be difficult, but we have some momentum now after finally getting that good win against Evansville. Our motto is to fight and try to compete for a win or draw, because a point on the road to start out with would really help us out."
HE'S PRETTY GOOD, EH?
Sophomore Midfielder Daniel Jodah (Mississauga, Ontario) scored his first career Marshall goal and first game winning goal against Evansville Sept. 21. Jodah tallied four assists last season as a true freshman.
Marshall has played just one true road game coming into the South Carolina match, beating Evansville 1-0 in the final match of the Aces ProRehab Classic.
LET'S GET SOCIAL
The Herd will play Saint Francis on the road on Oct. 1 at 7:00 p.m. before returning home Oct. 4 to take on Florida Atlantic at 7:00 p.m.
