Marshall Finishes Regular Season at East Carolina

HUNTINGTON, WV -- In the final match of its 2012 regular season campaign, the Marshall women’s soccer team will travel to Greenville, N.C. for a Conference USA bid with East Carolina.


Thursday’s contest will begin at 7 p.m. at the ECU Soccer Stadium.


The Pirates (9-6-3, 5-2-3 C-USA) enter the game coming off a 3-1 victory over C-USA foe Southern Miss on Sunday.  Senior forward Chrissy Gratz, who struck early in that victory, leads the Pirate offense with five goals on the season.  Gratz opened the scoring a year ago when the Pirates defeated the Thundering Herd 2-1 at Sam Hood Field.


ECU is 2-1-3 in the month of October and 5-1-2 when playing on its home field.


Marshall (7-10-1, 3-6-1 C-USA) is led in scoring by Chelsey Maiden and Erin Simmons.  The pair has found the net six times apiece this season, for which they rank 10th in the league in scoring.
