CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Despite recording the most shots and shots on goal in a match since 2019, the Mississippi State soccer program was unable to break the scoreless deadlock, and played Miami to a 0-0 draw in the opening match of the season.
The 26 shots and 11 shots on goal were the most by MSU since a 2019 match against LSU, where 32 shots and 10 shots on goal were recorded. The 11 corners taken by the Maroon and White were also the most for the program since a 2021 contest vs. Troy, in which 10 were taken.
The Bulldogs will stay in the South Beach area over the weekend as the squad makes the short trip to FIU for a match against the Panthers on Sunday. That match is scheduled for a 10 a.m. kickoff.
