Herd, Withrow hosting Kentucky

Oct. 16, 2012 @ 11:50 PM

HURRICANE -- Marshall University goalkeeper Daniel Withrow, the NCAA men's soccer leader in save percentage (.927) leads the Thundering Herd into a 7 p.m., Wednesday, match against the Kentucky Wildcats at Hurricane High School.

Admission is free.

Withrow tops Conference USA in goals-against average (0.33), save percentage and shutouts (8.1).

Marshall (10-1-1, 2-1-0 C-USA) has recorded nine shutouts. Kentucky (6-5-1, 1-1-1 C-USA) is an affiliate men's soccer member of the conference.

Thundering Herd Tom Jackson, the team scoring leader with seven goals and three assists, didn't play in a Saturday victory over South Carolina and is listed as questionable. Junior Zach Hunter and freshman Nick Edginton scored against the Gamecocks.

Kentucky's leading scorer is Tyler Riggs with seven goals and four assists.

Matt Lodge of the Wildcats, who scored the game-winner Saturday in a 2-1 win over No. 25 UAB, has six goals this season and 23 in a four-season career.
