Lady Bobcats Eases Past Wheeling Jesuit in 3-0 Victory

BUCKHANNON – Following a pair of ties in their last two games, the West Virginia Wesleyan Lady Bobcats returned to the win column today as they cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Wheeling Jesuit Lady Cardinals in a Mountain East Conference outing at Culpepper Stadium.

In a game where head coach Patrick Holguin was able to get everyone in the game, Wesleyan had little trouble dispatching of the winless Lady Cardinals.

Wesleyan tallied their first goal in the 19th minute when Marissa Zetty played a cross from Natalie Prater and scored from 18 yards out.

Wesleyan took that 1-0 lead into the intermission.

They wasted little time adding to their lead in the second half as Kelsey Sitka scored from the 18 putting a ball over top of Wheeling Jesuit keeper Megan Herter just 90 seconds in.

Zetty was credited with the assist.

Audrey Barber (pictured) wrapped up the scoring for Wesleyan in the 62nd minute as she scored on a penalty kick after a foul in the box on Wheeling Jesuit.

Wesleyan owned a 19-9 advantage in shots and a 14-6 lead in shots on goal.

Lady Bobcat keeper Chelsea Hubner turned away six shots as she recorded her fourth shutout of the season.

There were only 13 fouls called in the contest as Wesleyan was whistled for eight and Wheeling Jesuit being called for five.

Wesleyan improved their record to 3-0-2 overall and 2-0-2 in the MEC.

Wheeling Jesuit dropped to 0-4-1 overall and 0-3-1 in the MEC.

Wesleyan will return to action this Sunday as they travel to Athens for a conference battle with the Concord Mt. Lions.

The game is slated to kick-off at 1 p.m.
