Pablo Simon and Matthew Bell celebrate after winning against Georgia State University.

A win against Coastal Carolina led the No. 1 Marshall Men’s Soccer Team to a season high six goals at Hoops Family Field last Friday, Oct. 13.

The conference matchup between the Herd (12-0, 5-0 Sun Belt) and the Chanticleers (3-5-3, 1-2-2 Sun Belt) left Marshall with a winning score of 6-1. 

Within eight minutes of the game, freshman Braian Amaro scored the first goal of the contest and the first goal of his career. 

In the ninth minute of the first half, Pablo Simon scored his first goal of the night, putting Marshall up 2-0 by the end of the half. Matthew Bell assisted Simon in the goal.

Simon and Bell continued working as a pair in the second half. In the 53rd minute, Simon scored his second goal of the night off of an inconclusive shot by Bell. Simon went on to dish out two assists for the rest of the game.

Rai Pinto made his first goal of his career in the 65th minute. Aymane Sordo, meanwhile, received the ball from Simon and successfully performed a bicycle-kick goal. Sordo’s goal got a standing ovation from the crowd and moved the Herd to a score of 5-1. 

The final goal of the game came from fifth-year player, Alexander Adjetey. 

The Herd travels in-state to Morgantown for its next contest. Marshall’s Thundering Herd and West Virginia University’s Mountaineers will battle it out for a conference win. The much-awaited game against No. 7 WVU will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
