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.
