The starting lineup for the contest against Old Dominion

In a second half shutout, the Marshall Men’s Soccer Team (13-2, 6-2 Sun Belt) defeated Old Dominion University (5-5-5, 2-5-1 Sun Belt) last Friday, Oct. 27, in Norfolk, Virginia, for their last regular season travel match.

“First of all, I’d like to say congratulations to Alan Dawson on a fantastic career,” head coach Chris Grassie said. 

The Monarchs will be losing Dawson, who is retiring after 36 years of coaching collegiate soccer.  

“He’s been a champion many times, and his teams have always been really tough to play against. He’s been a great servant to the game and to ODU. I wish him happiness in his retirement,” Grassie added.

Braian Amaro scored Marshall’s first goal of the game in the 54th minute, tallying his second goal of the season. Adam Aoumaich assisted in the goal with a successful corner kick.

The second and final goal of the night was sent in by Alexander Adjetey, marking his third goal of the season. With a pass dished out by Matthew Bell, the shot was on target.

Adjetey shot past the Monarchs’ goalkeeper to give Bell his 10th assist of the season. Bell is now tied for the most single-season assists in program history. 

“I thought we fought really well tonight,” Grassie said. “The game was very stop-and-start due to all the fouls, but we kept our cool and played our football. Very proud of the lads tonight.”

“We’ve had a few guys come into the lineup, and they’ve performed admirably,” Grassie said. “We needed the win to get back on the horse, so to speak, but to play that way against the adversity was a bonus.”

 The Herd will compete in their last regular season game on Tuesday, Oct. 31, at Hoops Family Field.  Their rally against the South Carolina Gamecocks will have a 7:15 p.m. start time.
