Aymane Sordo weaves between defenders

A first half shutout by the Kentucky Wildcats Men’s Soccer team resulted in the No. 1 Thundering Herd’s first home loss of the season last Sunday, Oct. 22, at Hoops Family Field. 

The Herd (12-2, 5-2 Sun Belt) lost to the Wildcats (4-6-4, 1-3-2 Sun Belt) 2-0. Shots were put up by the Herd, but nothing stuck the landing. Both Aymane Sordo and Alexander Stjernegaard had shots on goal that were saved at 47:14 and 47:24, respectively. 

“It was unfortunate. I just don’t think we were on our game in the first half,” Marshall’s head coach Chris Grassie said.

“We didn’t quite do what we needed to do,” Grassie added. “I thought the patterns were there, and the game plan we had was totally to be played, but we didn’t execute very well. We made some mistakes. A couple of mistakes led to the goals.”

Two more attempts were made by Marshall, but the Wildcats deflected Pablo Simon in the 62nd minute and Taimu Okiyoshi the 90th. 

The Wildcats dominated the first half with two goals by highlight player Mason Visconti. In the 22nd and 37th minutes, Visconti was able to win the game for Kentucky. 

The Herd will be taking an away trip to Norfolk, Virginia on Oct. 27 for a contest against Old Dominion at 7 p.m.
