BUCKHANNON — The West Virginia Wesleyan Lady Bobcats (1-2-0) played on its back heel for much of its 90-minute contest with the University of Charleston Golden Eagles (3-0-1) and suffered a 2-0 loss, Wednesday.
Charleston got on the board early in the ninth minute on a high arching goal by Frankie Morrow that popped over Wesleyan keeper Paige Miller and under the middle of the crossbar.
The Golden Eagles second goal came 10 minutes into the second half when Lina Jaime curled a corner kick to the waiting foot of Carina Widaur who pushed the ball into the net from within the six-yard box.
Remaining on its defensive half for most of the match, the Lady Bobcats mustered just seven shots (two on goal) to Charleston’s 22, 13 of which were on goal. The Golden Eagles also topped the Lady Bobcats on corners, taking eight to Wesleyan’s single try.
Wesleyan will host West Virginia State University at Cebe Ross Field in Buckhannon Sunday, Sept. 17 at 4 p.m.
