SCOPING THE COMPETITION
FURY OF FLASHES
Kent State is led by ten seniors this season, highlighted by senior forward Lauren Caminati. Her goal at the Kent State Soccer Tournament last weekend pushed her to the all-time points leader at Kent. Caminati ranks in the top 5 in six statistical categories in the conference this season.
The Golden Flashes (2-1-1) are riding a two-game winning streak into this weekend's matchup. The all time series stands at 3-2 in favor of the Herd. Last year's game resulted in a Marshall 2-1 win.
CHECKING THE ZIPS
Akron (1-2-1) is coming off a loss to UC Irvine on September 7. The Zips will travel to Huntington following a MAC match at home against Ohio on Friday.
Akron is led by junior forward Jeannie Stuckey. Stuckey ranks fourth in the conference in goals with two and fifth in points.
The all-time series record sits at 1-0-1 with Marshall leading following a 1-1 tie against the Zips last season.
