TENNERTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buc soccer team was blanked by the visiting Wheeling Park Patriots by a 2-0 score Saturday afternoon in a home contest.
The two teams battled to a scoreless battle in the first half.
Wheeling Park got onto the scoreboard in the 59th minute when Merritt Delk scored on a penalty kick.
Ellie Reasback had Wheeling Park’s second goal to put the game away.
“It was a very physical game,” stated Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Bob Greenough. “We gave up that penalty kick midway through the second half then injuries hindered us for the rest of the game.”

They were slated to face East Fairmont Tuesday but a power outage moved the game to Wednesday night.
