Men’s Soccer Hits the Road for Friday Night Game
Live stats and video will be available through the men’s soccer page at HerdZone.com. You can listen to the official radio broadcast online or over the air on 88.1 FM. Live updates can be found by following @HerdMSoccer<https://twitter.com/HerdMSoccer> on Twitter.
SCOUTING THE GRIZZLIES
Oakland is 0-2 after starting with two tough road games at No. 15 Penn State (L 1-0) and West Virginia (L 4-1).
The Grizzlies have scored only one goal in 2014, with Gavin Hoy finding the net against West Virginia.
The Herd is 2-1 all-time against Oakland, winning the first two games of the series, before losing 2-0 last season at home.
SCOUTING THE FLAMES
Liberty is 2-0 in 2014 and will have the advantage of five days rest before facing the Herd. The Flames beat VMI on the road on Tuesday 5-0. Liberty has yet to allow a goal this season, after also beating Bluefield College 2-0 at home in its first match.
The leading scorer for Liberty is Junior Tim Harbison, who has two goals. Five other Flames players have scored this season.
Marshall trails in the all-time series against Liberty with a 2-4-2 record. However, the Herd won the last time the teams met, with a 2-0 win in Lexington, Va, in 2012.
THE GRAY AREA
Coach Bob Gray on goal production:
“We have to find a way to find more goal scoring opportunities. It just involves continuing to work hard and younger guys getting more experience, and we can start getting the ball in the back of the net. We’re looking for players and combinations on the field that can step up and provide that for us.”
TROUBLE FINDING THE NET
In its first two games, the Thundering Herd failed to score. The team has 22 shots on the season, with six shots on goal. Marshall’s total opponent shot total is 30, with 13 shots on goal and 2 goals scored.
REINING COMES UP BIG
Freshman Goalkeeper Dominik Reining (Frankfurt, Germany) stepped into the opening match of the season against Duquesne in the 76th minute of a scoreless match. Reining then went on to make four saves over the next 34 minutes, helping the Herd earn a 0-0 tie in two overtime periods.
