While on a 12-game unbeaten streak, Marshall University women’s soccer team (9-1-3) faces the University of Alabama at Birmingham (1-9) 8 p.m. Friday in the team’s third straight road match.

Assistant coach Erika Duncan said while the team’s successful streak is nice, the team’s attention is on its upcoming opponent.

Senior Kelly Culicerto said the Herd’s goal is to play every game like it is the team’s last.

“Having this winning streak is awesome for us,” Culicerto said. “But it’s not our main focus.” 

Aside from the team’s NCAA-leading unbeaten streak, senior Jenna Dubs earned her second consecutive honor as Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week, making it her third honor of the season.

She is the only player this season to earn the C-USA honor more than once, and the award marks the sixth consecutive week with at least one C-USA accolade for Marshall.

“We’re thrilled once again that Dubs was honored with the weekly honor,” head coach Kevin Long said. “The defense was challenged intensely over the weekend. She and her teammates did a great job. At this stage of the season, we rely heavily on her play and leadership, and it is fantastic that she is being recognized for her hard work.”
