Soccer ‘Cats can’t get offense going in 1-0 loss to Hilltoppers

WEST LIBERTY, W.Va.– West Virginia Wesleyan men’s soccer fell to West Liberty on Saturday by a 1-0 score in Mountain East Conference action.
The lone goal of the match came from Bernardo Vilchis’s penalty kick in the 32nd minute.

Liam Toman’s shot hit the hand of a Bobcat defender inside the penalty area leading to the eventual penalty conversion.

WVWC outshot the Hilltoppers 5-3 in the first half but could not convert the opportunities.
In the second half, both teams were held scoreless, thanks in part to the effort from Wesleyan keeper Logan Nelson. Nelson made four saves in the half, keeping the deficit to one.

The loss dropped the Bobcats to 4-2 overall and 3-2 in the MEC while West Liberty improved to 3-4 overall and 2-4 in the MEC.
The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday against nationally-ranked Davis & Elkins in Elkins, W.Va.
