Women’s Soccer Blanks Campbell at The Vet’s Debut, 3-0
“It feels good to get the first win in the first home game at the brand new stadium,” head coach Kevin Long said. “You couldn’t ask for a better night to have this kind of success. Last year, this team beat us, 4-2, so we certainly wanted to come out of the gates quickly.”
The Herd did just that in the second minute of play, jumping to a 1-0 lead with the first goal ever scored at the newly christened Hoops Family Field: a quick cross shot by sophomore Erin Simmons. Senior Casey Walsh was credited with the assist.
After a few substitutions by both teams in the middle of the half, freshman Beth Dine scored her first collegiate goal, putting the Herd up 2-0. She was unassisted on the play.
Another rookie, Kayla Byrnside, notched her first collegiate goal in the 85th minute to seal the deal for Marshall, 3-0. Freshman Sydney Arnold had the assist. At that point, Campbell substituted Samantha Lawson in goal for starter Alexis Connors. Connors (0-1-0) made seven saves on the day with three goals against her.
Junior Lizzie Kish (1-0-0) played all 90 minutes in the net for the Herd and tallied three saves for the match.
The Herd led the Camels in shots (18-5), corners (9-2) and saves (7-3).
Marshall (1-0-0) returns to the pitch at Hoops Family Field Sunday, Aug. 25 at 1 p.m. for a match with Kent State (1-0-0).
