MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Tigers of Memphis proved to be too strong for the Marshall Thundering Herd women's soccer team today at Mike Rose Soccer Complex. The Tigers downed the Herd 8-0 in the second conference game of the season.
"Today was a good example of when a team comes out and plays the best they can and a team that doesn't. I give credit to Memphis for coming out in the first minutes and playing all over us," Head Coach Chris Kane said.
The Tigers had two multiple goal scorers, Maiko Higashiyama and Kyle Hayes. Both players tallied a pair of goals in the win. Memphis notched 27 shots, 15 of which were on goal. Goalkeeper Isabel Briones tallied three saves.
Marshall registered four shots in the match, three on goal. Kassie Hollman led the team with two shots, both were on goal. Goalkeepers Liz Orton and Rachel Huff split the time between the pipes. Orton totaled two saves in the 73 minutes she played and Huff fives saves in her 18 minutes.
The Herd falls to 4-5-1 on the year, 0-2-0 in Conference USA play. Memphis improves to 5-4-2 overall and 1-0-1 in C-USA.
"Now the girls need to shake this off and get ready for the game next week," Kane said.
Marshall will travel to ECU on Oct. 6 before returning to Sam Hood Field on Oct. 13 and Oct. 15 to host Southern Miss and UCF.
