Soccer Lady ‘Cats earn 2-2 tie with Fairmont State

FAIRMONT, W.Va. – The West Virginia Wesleyan (1-6-1, 1-4-1) women’s soccer team scored two goals in a span of 30 minutes to force a draw with Fairmont State (2-2-3, 2-2-2) on Sunday (Sept. 25) afternoon at Duvall-Rosier Field.

Fairmont State got on the board first after Lesbia Alejandra Puetro Sorto placed a pass to Kiera Kuzinski in stride for a breakaway goal in the 17th minute. The home team held the Lady Bobcats to zero shot attempts in the first half. The Lady Bobcats trailed by one goal after 45 minutes of play.

Kuzinski registered her second goal of the afternoon shortly after the second half started. Wesleyan responded in the 59th minute when Chloe Ramirez booted a corner kick to the head of Maggie Queen, who scored her first goal donning a WVWC kit. Queen, a transfer from Fairmont State, put the Lady ‘Cats within one goal.

Beth Burchett created a breakaway opportunity and skillfully deked the Falcons’ keeper when she dished the ball off to Ellie Pergolotti, who finished the play with a goal in the 85th minute. Neither team could break the tie score, and the game concluded in a draw.

The Fighting Falcons outshot the Lady Bobcats 13-8, and both teams recorded five shots on goal. Ally Moore saved three shots on the afternoon.

Wesleyan returns home to face Frostburg State on Wednesday (Sept. 28).
