Lady ‘Cats tie Notre Dame College

BUCKHANNON – The two top women’s soccer teams in the Mountain East Conference squared off Sunday as North Division leader Notre Dame College ventured to Buckhannon to take on West Virginia Wesleyan, the top squad in the south.

Most of the first half was played in the middle third of the field as both teams probed for weaknesses but with little success; each team had just four shots and the half ended tied 0-0.

The action picked up in the second half as the game became increasingly physical. The Lady Cats had a nice look at goal the 68th minute when Marissa Zetty played a pass to Casey Underwood, who had a one-on-one with the keeper, but the Falcons keeper made an excellent save to keep the game tied 0-0.

In the 80th minute, the Lady ‘Cats would have another opportunity at goal. Natalie Prater played a through ball to the corner of the box to freshman striker MaKatlyn Tucker, who fired a shot that hit the right post and out for a goal kick.

Regular time would end with the score 0-0, and the game would head to the first overtime. Both teams were able to register three shots during that 10 minute stretch, but neither team was able to get on the scoreboard. The second golden goal segment also ended scoreless and the game went in the books as a 0-0 tie.

The draw kept Wesleyan’s 11-game unbeaten streak intact but marked the second straight game when they were unable to find the back of the net. They’ll head on the road for a test at Concord on Thursday before returning to campus to host Urbana on Sunday. That game will also be senior day.
