Marshall's Alyssa Hardin (28) headers a ball as the Marshall University women's soccer team takes on Radford on Thursday, September 9, 2021, at Hoops Family Field in Huntington.

HUNTINGTON — For 80 minutes, the Marshall women’s soccer team played even with Radford, waiting for one of the team’s many chances to find the net.

That time would never come, however, as Radford found the net twice in the match’s final 10 minutes to earn a 2-0 win over the Thundering Herd at Hoops Family Field on Thursday night.

The teams played scoreless through the majority of the match, but Radford went up in the 81st minute when Amy Swain took a feed from Lily McLane and put it past Marshall goalkeeper Mira Pastoft.

The Herd tried to rally for the tying goal, but the Highlanders secured the victory in the 88th minute when Kat Parris scored to make it a two-goal margin.

Each team had 13 shots and Marshall had five shots on goal against Radford keeper Lauren Seedlock, who secured all five saves.

The Herd was led in the loss by Cassidy Bell and Kat Gonzalez, who combined for seven of the team’s 13 shots.
