WVU Tech soccer maintains solid pace

The beat goes on for the WVU Tech men’s soccer team.

The Golden Bears collected their 10th win of the season Wednesday night, defeating Southern Virginia University 5-0 at Schoenbaum Stadium in Charleston.

The first half of play included a handful of goals scored in a variety of ways. Tech landed its first goal in the 13th minute when midfielder Juan Suarez took a direct kick from just outside the box that landed in the upper right corner of the net.

Ten minutes later, the Golden Bears struck again when forward Rodrigo Manzanares placed a swift pass from 18 yards out to Dennis Fürst, who manuevered to within two yards of the goal and placed a strike into the net. In the 39th minute, Fürst scored his second goal of the match on a penalty kick, giving the Bears a 3-0 lead at the half.

The squad returned to the field after halftime with similar intensity. In the 69th minute, Suarez netted his second goal of the match on a penalty kick right down the middle of the net.

The final goal of the match came in the 82nd minute when Braeden Collins looped a cross through the front of the box to Felipe Sozinho, who landed his first goal of his collegiate career.

Keepers John Dunn and Christian Strickler combined for a shutout.
