Marshall picked up his two shutout wins against IPFW and Missouri State. In total he made 10 saves including a season-high eight spots against Missouri State in 1-0 battle. Many of the shots he turned away in that game were dangerous strikes from the Bears. He turned away two shots against IPFW.

Xavier is off to its best start (6-0-2) and is ranked as high as No. 16 by SoccerTimes. The Musketeers are No. 23 in the NSCAA poll. The eight-match unbeaten streak is tied for the longest in program history.
