MORGANTOWN – The Buckhannon-Upshur girls soccer team came up just short in their road battle with the Morgantown Mohigans, dropping a 2-1 decision at Pony Lewis Field in a non-conference clash.

Anna Rose Iquinto had both goals for Morgantown as she scored one early in the first half and one early in the second half.

She played a through ball down the left side of the field for her first goal and then scored on a penalty kick for her second giving Morgantown a 2-0 lead.

Buckhannon-Upshur’s goal came via the foot of Miranda Greene in the 48th minute.

Maggie Queen set her up for the goal with a pass and Greene sent it home with a shot from the right channel to the near post.

The Lady Bucs were never able though to get that game-tying goal the rest of the second half as they had to play a player down after Kennedy Samargo picked up two yellow cards.

The Lady Bucs were outshot by an 8-5 margin and trailed in corner kicks by a 3-2 margin.

Kyndal Davis turned away six shots for the Lady Bucs in the net while Madysen Scheller made four saves for Morgantown.

Morgantown improved to 3-0 on the season.

The Lady Bucs saw their four-game unbeaten streak come to an end as their record fell to 9-3-1 on the year.

The Lady Bucs’ game today with Parkersburg South was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

If there are athletic contests next week in Upshur County due to the COVID-19 color coded map, Buckhannon-Upshur will visit Philip Barbour Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and Bridgeport Thursday at 8 p.m. for a pair of Big 10 Conference road contests.
