On this night, it was the WVU women’s soccer team picking up a 3-1 win over the Panthers in Morgantown. West Virginia scored two of their 3 goals in the second half.

After the win, the official women’s soccer account put the pressure on both the men’s team and football team to take care of business in their season opening Backyard Brawls.
