A golden goal by Brett Elder 2:56 into the first overtime gave the Wright State men's soccer team a 3-2 win over Marshall in the season opener Friday night at Alumni Field.

The Raiders opened the scoring just 14:12 into the contest as freshman forward Eric Lynch recorded his first collegiate goal as he received a fast-break pass from junior midfielder Chris DuPont and drove past the Marshall goalkeeper.

The Thundering Herd tied it at the 56:37 mark of the second half, only to see WSU go back in front at the 84:24 mark as sophomore midfielder Wesley Cain posted his first goal as a Raider, heading in a free kick from junior defender Gustav Svensson.

Marshall used a free kick of its own to tie with just 1:11 remainig in regulation, setting the stage for the Elder goal in overtime as the sophomore forward took a pass from DuPont on the left side and drove to the right middle of the goal for the game-winner.

The Thundering Herd led 23-17 in shots, but Raider junior goalkeeper Craig Feehan had seven saves.

Wright State (1-0) hits the road for the next three matches, starting on Wednesday, September 11, for a 4:00 contest at Robert Morris.
