FROSTBURG (Md.) — Eric Rostoen took a Casey Bunker pass deep behind a broken defense and West Virginia Wesleyan College men’s soccer secured its first win of the season at Frostburg State University, 1-0, in an MEC matchup Sunday.
The goal came on a 4-on-2 breakaway as the clock inched within six minutes of full time. Rostoen gained possession on the left wing at midfield with three attackers breaking through a shattered Frostburg State line. A quick pass from Rosteon to Bunker moved the ball past the 18. Bunker snapped a back pass to the middle of the field and the charging Rostoen who belted the winner beyond Frostburg keeper Joel Assal who came out of goal to defend.
The heated match saw eight cards (six on Wesleyan) including one red against Frostburg’s Mateo Cuadros in the 78th minute. Corner kicks were even at nine. Shots were 13 for Wesleyan and 14 for Frostburg State. The Bobcats’ Bryant Sheffield recorded four saves and Assal had six.
