Wesleyan 5, A-B 1
BUCKHANNON - West Virginia Wesleyan continued to showcase its offense Wednesday night, peppering the net five times for a convincing 5-1 victory over league rival Alderson-Broaddus.
Coach Gavin Donaldson's squad scored three goals in a 17-minute span in the second half, a rapid fire display that blew open a tight contest.
Nicholas Amberman put the Bobcats up early, scoring just four minutes in off a Matthew Brown assist. Wesleyan held on to the slim 1-0 lead until the final minutes of the half, as Brown extended the advantage to 2-0 at 37:43.
Richard Sho-Silva provided a goal that pushed the lead to 3-0 early in the second half, but Alderson-Broaddus responded quickly with a tally from Sat Dhaliwal.
There would be no Battler comeback, however, as Wesleyan scored goals just a minute apart at 67:29 and 68:54.
Andrew Eccles produced the first unassisted, while Joe Ferraracci providing the nightcap off a pass from Amberman.
Wesleyan (12-3-1, 7-1 WVIAC) travels to Charleston on Saturday. The matchup between national powers will likely determine the top seed in the WVIAC playoffs.
Alderson-Broaddus ends the season with a 5-9 overall mark and 3-6 league log.
