WVWC Edges WJU 2-1 For WVIAC Women's Soccer Title

(BUCKHANNON)---West Virginia Wesleyan (16-4-2) tallied both scores in a 150-second stretch of the second half as the Bobcats rallied to claim WVIAC Women's Soccer Tournament championship with a 2-1 win over rival Wheeling Jesuit (16-6-0).

Wheeling Jesuit notched the only score of the first half when Katie Groff found the back of the net.  Jessica Park assisted on the goal and the Cards had 1-0 lead that they would maintain for the next 50-plus minutes.

Wesleyan knotted the contest at 1-1 when Meghan Zayas booted in an unassisted goal at the 63-minute mark.  Mallory Smith provided the eventual game-winner only two minutes later with another unassisted score.

WVWC owned a 14-9 edge in shots on goal.  Bobcat keeper Lauren Hessian turned away seven shots.  Ashley Hitz made nine saves and allowed two goals in 65 minutes of action for the Cardinals.  Lauren Lewicki made saves on both shots directed at her in 25 minutes.

The victory awards Wesleyan an automatic into the upcoming NCAA Division II Women's Soccer Great Lakes Regional.  It also marks Wesleyan's league-high sixth conference tournament championship and snapped a three-year run for WJU atop the WVIAC.

WVIAC Women's Soccer Tournament Pairings & Preview

(PRINCETON, W.Va.)---Divisional champions West Virginia Wesleyan and Wheeling Jesuit have earned first round byes in the upcoming WVIAC Women's Soccer Tournament.  First round play opens on Tuesday when Pitt Johnstown visits Concord and Shepherd hosts Davis & Elkins.

Wesleyan (15-4-1, 11-1-1) clinched the tournament's top overall seed with an impressive 5-1 victory at Wheeling Jesuit last week.  Defending tournament champion Wheeling Jesuit (15-5-0, 11-2-0) had long clinched their opening round bye thanks to their Northern Division title.

Concord (11-7-1, 9-3-1) looks for a season sweep over Pitt Johnstown (8-12-0, 4-9-0) on Tuesday.  The Mountain Lions claimed a 3-0 win earlier this month in Johnstown as Jenny Cleland netted a pair of goals.  Concord reached the WVIAC Tournament championship match last season before falling to Wheeling Jesuit 1-0 in an overtime thriller.  Pitt Johnstown is making their first appearance in the league's post-season event.

Davis & Elkins (10-9-1, 8-4-1) and Shepherd (7-10-2, 5-7-1) have some unsettled business to take care of.  The squads played to a scoreless tie last Saturday in Shepherdstown.  D&E held an overwhelming edge in shots, but couldn't get one past Ram keeper Amy Bell.  The Senators are led by freshman Cole Dant, the WVIAC leader with 26 goals.

Semifinal action is slated for Friday.  Sunday's championship match will carry an automatic bid into the upcoming NCAA Division II Women's Soccer Tournament.
