Bohdan boasts a team-high 14 points from five goals and four assists, both of which lead UTEP. Bohdan’s 41 total shots on the season are good for No. 6 in the league.

LAST TIME AGAINST UTEP
Marshall defeated UTEP on Oct. 20 thanks to a first minute strike by Ashley Seltzer. The Knoxville, Tenn., native took the ball in the midfield, drove past several UTEP defenders and fired a shot off the post, which bounced in the net for a goal in the second minute of action. It was Seltzer’s first goal of the season and the fastest goal Marshall has scored all season. Goalkeeper Megan Bonelli earned her second shutout of the season.
