HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The Marshall men's soccer team (4-7-0, 0-4-0 C-USA) travels to Florida Monday to face Florida Atlantic (0-11-2, 0-5-0 C-USA) at 7 p.m.

Both schools are searching for their first wins in Conference USA. The Owls are searching for their first win of the season.


In the late stages of Saturday's 3-1 loss to Charlotte, senior defender Matt Freeman (Irmo, S.C.) scored a penalty in the 90th minute.

The goal is Freeman's first since Oct. 23, 2012 against FIU at home. The match was played in Hurricane, W.Va. during the completion of Hoops Family Field at Veterans Memorial Soccer Complex.


Freshman Jack Sedor (Anchorage, Alaska), made his first start and appearance against Charlotte Saturday. The forward played 26 minutes in the C-USA contest.
