RADFORD, Va. - The Marshall University women's soccer team fell to its final non-conference opponent of the season, Radford University, 1-0, in Friday night's game at the Patrick D. Cupp Memorial Stadium.
"They simply found the net and we didn't," Marshall head coach Chris Kane said. "Our mental errors cost us as well as not being able to capitalize on their errors."
Freshman forward Missy Gordon (Carmel, Ind.) led the Herd with three shots, with two being placed on goal.
The Herd's sophomore goalkeeper Liz Orton (Fort Collins, Colo.) tallied five saves despite the loss.
Marshall's Kassie Hollman (Marietta, Ga.), Erika Duncan (Easthaven, Scotland, Uk), and Kristen Berquist (Highland Village, Texas) also contributed with tallying two shots on goal respectively.
Radford's Brianna Kipper recorded the lone goal in the match-up from a Latrice Lee pass. The Highlanders now lead the series against the Herd, 1-0-0.
In spite of the loss, Marshall and Radford tied with 13 shots apiece.
"We need to learn and move on from this to prepare for Central Florida," coach Kane added. "We need to regroup for conference play because it's a whole new ball game."
The Herd continues its five-game road trip when it travels to Orlando, Fla., Friday, Oct. 5 to face its first Conference USA opponent, University of Central Florida at 7 p.m. at the UCF Soccer Complex.
