‘Cats smother Shepherd, 5-0

SHEPHERDSTOWN — The West Virginia Wesleyan College soccer Bobcats recorded a big Mountain East Conference win by dismantling the Shepherd Rams on the road Thursday.

In a dominant performance, Wesleyan outshot their opponents 29-3 and took 11 corner kicks en route to the 5-0 win at Shepherd.

Liam Igoe was first on the board, scoring on a Matthew Bentley assist in the 15th minute. Despite controlling play, that would be Wesleyan’s only goal of the first 45 minutes and the game entered intermission at 1-0.

But things broke open in the second half. Zach Whiting scored on a header in the 53rd minute off a service from Dominic Okus. Kazuma Takagi, Tanner Amos and Bentley each scored over the next 20 minutes to put the game at the final 5-0 score.

Alex Rittenhouse picked up the shutout in goal for Wesleyan, recording three saves. J. Machado Orellano had 10 saves for the Rams.

The ‘Cats will be back in action Saturday when they take on Wheeling Jesuit at home. The game will be played on the turf and is set to start at 4:30 p.m.
