HUNTINGTON, WV -- The Thundering Herd women’s soccer team will host Saint Francis (Pa.) Friday at 7 p.m. at Cabell-Midland High School.

 

Friday’s match, the second meeting in the all-time series between the two programs, can be followed online via CBS GameTracker.

 

Marshall (1-2) began last season with a 3-2 triumph over the Red Flash at Stokes Soccerplex in Loretto, Pa.  Returning stars Alyssa Cathey of Marshall and Tesa McKibben of Saint Francis were goal-scorers in the matchup to start the 2011 season, but it was Marshall’s Angela DeSumma who struck twice late in the game to give the Herd a come-from-behind victory.

 

Cathey assisted DeSumma’s second goal, which came in the final minute of regulation.

 

Saint Francis (1-2) went 12-6-3 last season despite a rugged 0-3 start.  The 1-2 tilt for which the Red Flash is currently noted has the team coming off a 2-0 loss to #15 Long Beach last Friday.

 

SFU has gone goal-less in its last two matches after beginning the season with a 2-0 victory over Duquesne.

 

Redshirt junior McKibben leads the Red Flash in points (three) so far this season after registering a goal and an assist in the opening day win.  The two-time Northeast Conference Player of the Year also notched a goal in a preseason victory over American University.
