Matthew Bell led the Thundering Herd’s offensive onslaught.

The Marshall men’s soccer team shut out Oakland University 4-0 in the season opener at Hoops Family Field on Thursday, Aug. 24.

Matthew Bell, 2022 SBC Freshman of the Year, led the Thundering Herd’s offensive onslaught and scored within the first two minutes of the game. Bell tallied three total goals in the contest to complete his first career hat trick. 

Newcomer to the Marshall offense, junior Alvaro Garcia-Pascual, provided assists for two of the three goals scored by Bell. 

Senior Aymane Sordo scored his first goal of the season in the 77th minute to push the lead to 4-0.
