Soccer ‘Cats tumble at home to No. 9 Charleston, 4-2

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Wesleyan (6-5-3, 4-5-3) men’s soccer team dropped a result versus no. 9 Charleston (13-1, 12-1) on Sunday (Oct. 16) afternoon at Cebe Ross Field.

In the first half, the Golden Eagles got on the scoreboard first from a ball in behind the defense that was able to find the feet of Eduardo Barros and beat the goalkeeper. This did not stop the Bobcats at all as constant pressure forced a mistake from the back of the Golden Eagles in which Javier De Ona Garcia was able to get on and chip the goalkeeper from about 25 yards out. In the 32nd minute, a well-placed corner kick from the Golden Eagles was able to find the head of Javier Sanchez in which he was able to give them the lead going into the half, 2-1.

In the second half, the Bobcats came out first with many opportunities but none were able to find the goal. In the 49th minute, a ball into the area from Sam Newell forced the Golden Eagle goalkeeper to come out but that was not enough as Luis Diaz found himself in the area and was able to put it in goal to even out the score to 2-2. Two minutes later, Eduardo Barros from Charleston was able to get one back for the Golden Eagles. Lewis Redding from Charleston sealed it for the Golden Eagles in the 55th minute when he was able to get on the end of a counter attack and put the Golden Eagles up 4-2 in the second half. The rest of the half saw a constant back and forth battle between both teams.

The WVWC Bobcats are on the road on Wednesday (Oct. 19) for a match versus Notre Dame (Ohio) at 3 p.m.
