Men drop another heartbreaker in OT

West Virginia Wesleyan Men’s Soccer took a trip to the Northern Panhandle on Wednesday evening to take on Wheeling Jesuit. Wesleyan was looking for their first win of the season after some tough losses.

The first action for Wesleyan came in the 13th minute when Andrew Polychroniadi got a shot on goal that was saved by the Wheeling keeper. Fouls were back and forth between the teams in the next stretch of the half. During that time, Wheeling found a few shot opportunities but none of them were scares for the Bobcats as they went wide. Wesleyan goalkeeper Sahil Dhunnookchand did have to make some key saves at the end of the first half to keep it scoreless. He got the job done, and Wheeling and Wesleyan went into the half scoreless.

The second half was much of the same between the teams. Wesleyan did receive their first yellow card of the match in the 74th minute. Jost Hausendorf was the Wesleyan player carded on the play. Less than five minutes later, Wesleyan had their best opportunity to score when Kazuma Takagi’s shot hit the post. The game would end up heading to OT with Shail Dhunnookchand being the star of the match thus far. The goalkeeper had 6 saves heading into OT.

Dhunnookchand would be called back into action in the first OT as he saved a header from WJU’s Jordan Simpson. Kazuma Takagi would have the last chance for Wesleyan before the game went into double overtime with a shot that went high.

Wesleyan had two shots blocked by the Wheeling Jesuit defense early in the second overtime, followed by a header shot by Mason Benchoff that was saved by the WJU goalkeeper. The shutout would end for Wesleyan as WJU’s Mckinley Fodness tacted on the golden goal in the 105th minute. This would clinch Wheeling’s third win of the season and second win in MEC play.

Wesleyan will be back in action Sunday at home where they take on the Hilltoppers of West Liberty. The game is set to start at 7 PM.
