Lady Cats tie Charleston 0-0

CHARLESTON, W.Va.  One-hundred and 10 minutes of soccer was not enough to decide a winner in an intense Mountain East Conference battle between heavyweights West Virginia Wesleyan College and the University of Charleston on Wednesday.

The Lady ‘Cats traveled to the state capitol after having previously beaten Charleston 2-0 in early September. This time, however, neither team would capitalize on their chances and the double overtime match ended 0-0.

In the first half of play, both the LBC and the Golden Eagles fought hard to get shots off, but neither team was successful in putting a goal in the back of the net.

Heading into the second half, Charleston continued to fire shots towards the goal but were not able to finish one. Wesleyan worked  to bring the ball to their offensive third, but ultimately ran into the same offensive problems as the Golden Eagles. The first two halves of regular play ended scoreless for both teams, forcing the rivals into overtime.

The first 10 minutes of over-time were high intensity between the two sides, but neither were able to put the ball away, sending the game into another overtime.

The Golden Eagles worked towards the Bobcats defense in the last 10 minutes of play, but were not able to find the net, ending the MEC game in a 0-0 tie.

Statistically, things were fairly even, with UC holding a slight 4-3 edge in shots on goal and controlling a 3-1 margin in corner kicks.

The tie ended a nine-game win streak for Wesleyan that dated back to August. They’re now 9-1-1 on the season. Charleston, meanwhile, is stilling hugging the .500 mark at 6-6-1.

The Lady ‘Cats will return home to take on Notre Dame College (Ohio) on Sunday, with kickoff set for 4 p.m.
