MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The men’s soccer match between No. 10 West Virginia and No. 25 Old Dominion has been deemed a no contest with no plans for a replay of the match. The game went through multiple weather delays due to thunder and lightning around Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.
The match ended with 4:07 remaining in the first half with the Mountaineers leading 1-0. Both teams had two shots on-goal with the Mountaineers recording two corner kicks.
Junior Travis Pittman got WVU on the board in the 13th minute with a volley from 12 yards out to the near side of the net. Freshman Andy Bevin got the play started by running down the right sideline, breaking past two Old Dominion defenders and sending a perfect cross to Pittman.
Goalkeeper Pat Eavenson made two terrific saves on Old Dominion’s Gideon Asante in his first half shutout.
WVU will return to action on Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 p.m., with a match against No. 8 UC Santa Barbara. The Mountaineers will then travel north to Cal Poly on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 4 p.m.
