Women’s Soccer Stays Undefeated Against Ohio Bobcats

Marshall women’s soccer (3-0-1) kept their undefeated streak alive against the Ohio Bobcats at Hoops Family Field on Thursday night, Aug. 31, by winning 1-0 with the help of goalie Alexis Wolgemuth. 

Wolgemuth tallied her third shutout of the season along with 9 saves in tonight’s contest. 

Meanwhile, the Bobcats outshot Marshall in the contest but failed to net any goals due to the performance of Marshall’s goalkeeper. Wolgemuth saved each of the 9 shots that Ohio put on goal.

Head Coach Michael Swan had high praise for the goalkeeper after the match.

“Tonight, she’s been special. She’s been special all season,” Swan said. 

Going into halftime, the teams were tied. In the early stages of the second half, though, Bailey Fisher notched her third goal of the season to give The Herd the winning goal. Fisher leads the team in goals so far this season. 

Last season, Swan’s squad only tallied four wins throughout the season. Tonight’s win pushes The Herd to three wins in the first four games of the season. 

The Herd will be back home at Hoops Family Field on Sunday, Sept. 3, to face Gardner Webb.
