HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Fresh off its season-opening victory, Marshall women’s soccer will travel to Harrisonburg, Va. Sunday for a match against James Madison.  Kick-off is set for 7 p.m. at JMU’s University Park.

The James Madison Dukes open their regular season against the Thundering Herd after a preseason which saw them go 0-1-1.  Junior Lauren Wilson was James Madison’s lone goal scorer between the two games, putting JMU on the board in the second of three 35-minute periods last Sunday against Virginia Commonwealth. 

Wilson scored eight goals and recorded six assists last season and helped the Dukes finish 8-8-1 (5-5-1 Colonial Athletic Association).  Her 22 points were more than any other two members of the Dukes 2011 squad. 

Marshall (1-0) is coming off a victory in its home opener Friday afternoon.  Freshman Erin Simmons, sophomore Alyssa Cathey, and junior Lizzy Lemons were all goal-scorers in the 3-1 bout with Ball State. 

A victory for the Herd on Sunday would improve Marshall to 2-0 for the first time since head coach Kevin Long guided his squad to a 7-0 start to the 2009 season.
