MORGANTOWN?- Chris Atallah scored two goals Tuesday night, leading Morgantown to a 4-0 decision over visiting Buckhannon-Upshur in boys high school soccer action.
Payne Chafin and Nate Bolles added single goals for the Mohigans.
Morgantown led 1-0 at the half, and extended the advantage with three second half goals. They outshot B-U 11-2 as Buc goalkeeper Chris Orwig recorded seven saves on the evening.
"We played them pretty tough in the first half, but we made some simple mistakes that they were able to capitalize upon," Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Mike Donato said. "Conversely, we did not take advantage of their mistakes when those opportunities were there. They are a very talented team and you do not have much margin for error against a team like them."
After suffering a tough 2-1 loss last weekend to Brooke, the Bucs fall to 0-2 on the season.
B-U returns home Saturday to host Musselman in an afternoon tilt.
"It is still early in the season," Donato said. "Right now we are working on timing and ball possession. When we can eliminate some of the mistakes we are making and finish on the offensive end, we will be alright."
