Soccer ‘Cats drop 1-0 decision to Wheeling

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Wesleyan (6-4-3, 4-4-3) men’s soccer dropped a result versus Wheeling (6-7-1, 6-5-1) on Wednesday (Oct. 12) night at Buckhannon-Upshur High School Stadium.

In the first half, WVWC had the better of the half, having most of the possession but not being able to find the back of the net. Bryant Sheffield came up huge with a difficult save that ended up in the penalty area, but the Wheeling attacker was not able to find the goal. The Bobcats went into the half even at 0-0.

In the second half, the Cardinals started to go much more direct, forcing several first and second balls to be contested for. A ball in behind the defense found Richard Afolayanka in which he was able to place it past the Bobcat goalkeeper. The rest of the half saw a constant back-and-forth battle between both teams in which a few chances were created but nothing was enough to give the Bobcats an equalizer. The game concluded in a 1-0 loss for the Bobcats.

The WVWC Bobcats are back home on Sunday (Oct. 16) for a match versus Charleston.
