BUCKHANNON, W. Va. -- Third-seeded Urbana fell 3-0 to No. 2 seed West Virginia Wesleyan Wednesday in the Mountain East Conference men's soccer semifinals. The game was played in soggy conditions on Wesleyan's natural surface field in Buckhannon, West Virginia.
With the loss, UU's season comes to an end with an overall record of 10-7-0. WVWC (11-5-3) will move on to the MEC Finals against the winner of Charleston/Notre Dame.
UU controlled possession for the majority of the first half, going into halftime with a 11-3 edge on shots, but didn't take advantage with the score tied 0-0 at the break.
The second half was all Wesleyan with goals scored in the 55th, 76th and 88th minutes. The Blue Knights were able to get a few good looks but Wesleyan's keeper Cooper Zent came up big with three saves in the second period.
