Charleston 3, Wesleyan 2
CHARLESTON - National powers Charleston and West Virginia Wesleyan hooked up for a titanic match Saturday in West Virginia Conference soccer action.
In the end, it was the Golden Eagles walking off the Schoenbaum Stadium turf with the league's regular season trophy, winning a thriller in overtime, 3-2.
Wesleyan held a 2-1 lead midway into the second half, but Charleston tied the contest in regulation and delivered a golden goal in the first minute of the second overtime on a score from Adam Hintz.
Charleston scored first, with Nathan Schmitt heading in a Renan Ramos cross. Wesleyan's Joe Ferraracci tied the game in the final seconds of the first half, hitting in a straight on unassisted goal with a mere five seconds remaining before intermission.
Matthew Brown provided Wesleyan its first lead of the night, beating Golden Eagle goalkeeper Sean Teepen from the right, finishing off a nice ball that was fed forward by teammate Jordan Halpern.
Wesleyan turned back several Charleston pushes before Dan Wamsley tied the game at 2-2 off a corner from Rob Vincent at the 72:22 mark. Battling into the second overtime, the teams remained deadlocked until Hintz scored only 12 seconds into the second overtime.
The play hit quickly as Vincent delivered a well placed long ball down the left side of the field in fast-break fashion. Hintz hit the net with a quick one-timer that ended the game.
Charleston closed the regular season undefeated in league play with a 9-0 record.
Wesleyan falls to third in the league standings behind UC and Davis & Elkins. The Bobcats are 7-2 in the WVIAC and 12-4-1 overall.
