WOMEN'S SOCCER vs. WEST VIRGINIA TECH
There are no upcoming games currently scheduled. Please check back at a later time.
Charleston, WV—Junior All-American Katherine Ferland showed exactly why she is one of the most prolific scorers in the USCAA, as she scored a second half hat trick and powered the #1 seed, University of Maine Fort Kent Bengals past host and #8 seed West Virginia Tech in quarterfinal action at the USCAA National Championships, 3-0. The Bengals are in pursuit of a third National Championship in four seasons.
The game was tight the entire way, and WVU played UMFK to a first half tie with neither team really having any chances to score. Ferland got the Bengals on the scoreboard in the 51st minute after a Sam Carrapellucci throw in was mishandled by the WVU back. Ferland corralled the ball and sent it past keeper Martha Reyna with her left foot.
It was Ferland again in the 59th minute as she rebounded a miss from Yosselin Burrueco and struck it past the West Virginia Tech keeper. Burrueco made a nifty move to get the ball at midfield and dribbled it to the 18 yard line and fired a shot that was saved, but Ferland was there to clean it up.
Ferland completed the hat trick late in the 87th minute after she was taken down inside the box, which drew a red card from WVU’s Alex Blumer. Ferland buried the PK and put the exclamation point on the victory.
UMFK keeper Michelle Delgadillo saved all three shots on goal she faced as she and the defense were once again rock solid, posting their 10th shutout collectively. WVU’s Reyna made two saves on five shots.
The Bengals will play again Friday evening at 5:00pm against 5th seed Florida College. FC won their quarterfinal matchup, upending #4 seed Alfred State College, 3-0.
