Late Buzzer-Beater Fails as West Virginia Soccer Ties Kentucky in Classic Match



WVU men's soccer celebrates with fans

The West Virginia men’s soccer team didn’t win their match with Kentucky on Saturday night, but they didn’t lose it either.

The Mountaineers (4-6-3, 1-1-3 Sun Belt) fought back after trailing 2-0 early in front of a rocking crowd at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.

Fifth-year senior forward Adam Burchell scored WVU’s first goal and then redshirt senior defender/midfielder Dyon Dromers tallied the other goals, including one that put the Mountaineers up 3-2 in the final minutes of the game.

That lead was short-lived though, as Kentucky would respond only 23 seconds later to tie things up at 3.

WVU almost won in a picture-perfect moment in the final 10 seconds when redshirt junior midfielder/defender Sergio Ors Navarro got his head on a corner kick. The attempt was saved and the buzzer-beater win was not to be.

The Mountaineers will be back on the pitch in Harrisonburg, Virginia to face James Madison on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. EST.
