West Virginia - away game Thursday Nov. 7

Recommended Posts

West Virginia is a team that has had their season destroyed by injuries

 

At the beginning of the season, they played to a 0-0 tie with a very good Charlotte team.

In the MAC season, they have been forced to play without their 2 best players

 

WVA is 6-7-2 overall and is 0-3-1 in the MAC

 

opened their season with a 1-0 OT win at Monmouth

2nd game was 1-0 OT loss at Delaware

 

2-1 home win over Wright State

   0-0 result at home with #12 (at the time) Charlotte

5-2 home win over then #15 ranked Coastal Carolina

 

2-1 win OT win at Cincinnati

    at that point of the season, WVA was 4-1-1   (since then they have gone 2-6-1)

 

2-0 home loss to Dayton

4-1 win....thrashing Ohio State in Columbus

3-0 home win over Penn

 

   that is their last win of the year....they have gone 0-5-1 in their last 6 games

 

4-1 loss at home to then #25 ranked San Diego  (useless trivia...here...San Diego head coach is the father of Aodhan Quinn)

3-1 loss on the road to then #18 ranked N. Carolina (UNC has struggled in the ACC...they are 7-7-2 overall and play Syracuse tonight in ACC tourney...if Syracuse wins, UNC will not be in the NCAA tourney)

 

3-1 home loss to West Virginia

4-2 home loss to Northern Illinois

3-0 loss at Bowling Green

0-0 result at SIU-E

 

after the SIU-E game, the WVA coach had these quotes:

"What a performance from our team on the road," WVU coach Marlon LeBlanc said. "We're really, really shorthanded right now, missing arguably the two best players on our team, but our guys fought tooth-and-nail and were the better team for 110 minutes tonight. It's disappointing to not get the goal that we deserved but give SIUE credit for being resilient and defending well. I thought our kids showed up tonight. The resurgence has to start somewhere – this is a good place for it to start."

 

here is what the SIU-E coach had to say about the same game

"It was a tough, good college soccer game," SIUE Head Coach Cale Wassermann said. "West Virginia is a quality team. There were some ebbs and flows. I thought we were better in the first half and they were better in the second half. It was pretty even in the overtimes.

Diogo Pacheco  was very good during his time on the field.  Definitely man of the match

what a scrum......on their near goal....

crossbar was the zips friend tonight

David Egbo really worked hard on defense.  However, the zips need to figure out a way for David to get the ball more in their half of the field

Also, the refereeing for the match was awful.  Zips were called 22 fouls vs. 9 for the home team

A nice win.  Not sure if the header off the WV corner actually crossed the line, but nice effort by the Zips to get the ball out of there.

Congrats Zips!

 

Now: win the MAC tournament, and make some noise in the NCAAs!

Former player, now coach, likely to win a "mythical" national championship with his 2019 NJ State Champion H.S. team.
