Marshall goalie Kish earns C-USA award

Sep. 24, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall Thundering Herd women's soccer goalkeeper Lizzie Kish received Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week recognition.

The junior from Boyertown, Pa., has posted eight shutouts in eight matches.

She blanked Miami (Ohio) in a Sunday 1-0 victory and stopped a 25-match scoring streak for the RedHawks.

"It's exciting when you look at the image that our goalkeeper is making and the wins we're getting," Marshall coach Kevin Long said. "As a team, we're sitting in a good position going into conference play. More importantly, when you look at (Kish) individually, you see that she's really come a long way from tearing her ACL freshman year.

"She's worked so hard to get where she is in her starting position and it's really paid off."

Kish sat out the last two seasons while recovering from ACL surgery.

Marshall begins its C-USA schedule with Friday and Sunday matches at home against Old Dominion and UAB, respectively.
