The Last Meeting
October 20, 2012
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - With just one game remaining in the 2013 season for Marshall and one match remaining in the collegiate careers for five seniors, the Herd will host No. 17 UAB at Veterans Memorial Soccer Complex on Friday at 7 p.m.
Winless against ranked teams this season in four tries, Marshall will look to break that trend against the Blazers at home.
HAVE YOU HERD?
Charlotte's back line remained strong against Marshall for the entirety of the night to complete the shutout as the Herd fell to its sixth shutout in its last seven contests.
When the final whistle blew, Charlotte had recorded more shots (19-11), shots on goal (8-4) and corners (5-4) than Marshall.
THE GRAY AREA
"It is going to be our Senior Night on Friday and we are going to face a team that is currently ranked 10th in the country, so we are going to just go out and try to get that signature win we have been trying to get all year. We will have to give our best effort and play the role of spoiler, hopefully."
SCOUTING THE BLAZERS
The Blazers have bolstered a high-powered offensive attack, averaging 2.5 goals per game. Freddy Ruiz has been the leader of the UAB offensive attack, with 11 goals and added three assists for 25 points.
UAB leads the series 7-2-1. The Blazers have won three straight against Marshall, which has not topped UAB since 2009.
