BUCKHANNON - West Virginia Wesleyan exploded for seven first-half goals Tuesday night, ending the issue early and cruising to a 7-0 victory over Ohio Valley in West Virginia Conference soccer action.

Six different Bobcat players scored in the balanced offensive attack.

Joe Ferraracci got the Bobcats on the board with lightning speed, hitting the net only 30 seconds into the match off a combination from Matthew Brown and Daniel Smee.

Five minutes later, the score was extended to 2-0 when Jordan Haplern scored off a pass from Sam Turner.

Goals came in pairs for the rest of the half. Smee and Halpern scored a minute apart at the 18 and 19 minute marks, while Tyler Marshall and Brown also scored a minute apart at the 32 and 33 minute marks. Adrian Eccles ended the evening's scoring barrage three minutes before intermission with the seventh goal of the match.

Smee ended the evening with three assists to match his goal, while Ferraracci tallied a pair of assists to go with a score.

The potent Bobcat offensive attack outshot the Fighting Scots 13-1 in the contest.

Wesleyan had all 10 of the game's corner kicks.

Bobcat goalkeeper Derek Ayers had one save in producing another shutout. Ohio Valley keeper Darcy Turner had six saves.
