Soccer ‘Cats hold off winless Concord for 2-1 victory

BECKLEY, W.Va. — The West Virginia Wesleyan (4-1-0, 3-1-0) men’s soccer team defeated Concord, 2-1 on Wednesday (Sept. 22) at the YMCA Paul Cline Complex thanks to a late first half surge by the Orange & Black.
Concord took control early when Esteban Correa slotted one past Logan Nelson in the 13th minute.
However, the ‘Cats showed poise and equalized the match in the 34th minute when Nugzar Barkaia soared down the left-wing and laid a cross to the feet of Nika Monaselidze. Monaseldize did what he’s done all year and placed the ball into the top left corner past the Concord keeper.
Less than two minutes later, Wesleyan regained control of the game when Javier De Ona Garcia found Barkaia, who placed the ball into the bottom left corner by the diving keeper and gave the Bobcats a 2-1 lead just before halftime.
Barkaia registered a goal and an assist on the scoresheet, his first time achieving that feat in the 2021 season.
Wesleyan outshot Concord 9-4 in a scoreless second half and held on to get back into the win column.
WVWC is scheduled to hit the pitch again on Saturday (Sept. 25) at West Liberty at 3:30 p.m.
