Men's Soccer: WVU Heads on Road Trip


The West Virginia University men's soccer team will travel to Seton Hall for a match on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., in South Orange, N.J. The game will be held at Owen T. Carroll Field.


"Seton Hall is always a team that can attack and score goals in bunches," coach Marlon LeBlanc says. "They are a young team this year that is still trying to figure themselves out. Some of the results have been impressing with the biggest one being a 0-0 draw with Maryland. This is not slouch and anything can happen in BIG EAST games."


            The Mountaineers were last in action last Saturday evening, falling 2-1 to Providence at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. Nick Claudio scored in the losing effort with his first career goal in the 47th minute, before a Providence goal from Marc Cintron in the 87th minute gave Providence the go-ahead lead. Before the loss, WVU defeated then-ranked No. 1 Connecticut 2-0 on Wednesday evening.


            WVU has outscored its opponents 20-16, as well as taking more shots (191-129) and corner kicks (98-62).


            Shadow Sebele continues to lead WVU in points with 19 (6 g, 7 a), while Andy Bevin has six goals and two assists for 14 points. Peabo Doue, Uwem Etuk and Eric Schoenle each have two goals. Doue and Etuk both have four assists.


In between the posts, Justin Holmes has started 11 matches, playing 1010 minutes in goal. He has allowed 10 goals, while making 30 saves for a 0.89 goals-against average. Holmes also has five shutouts.


Seton Hall is 4-9-2 overall and 0-6-0 in BIG EAST play. The Pirates are getting outscored 35-16, as well as outshot 229-183. The team's biggest result came in a 0-0 draw with No. 1 Maryland earlier in the season.


Offensively, Max Garcia has scored a team-leading five goals in 14 games with one game-winning goal. Garcia has taken 23 of the teams 65 shots on-goal. Giovanni Zammiello, Adriano Gabriele and Jason Wellington have all scored two goals, while Damian Bziukiewicz has a team-leading four assists.


Seton Hall has used four goalies, including three different keepers in the past four matches. Mario DeClerico has played in seven games, starting six, while allowing 20 goals with a 2.89 goals-against average. Position player Anthony Reichwaldt had started six matches in goal, including last Saturday in a 3-0 loss to Marquette. Reichwaldt has allowed nine goals and has made 25 saves for a 2-2-1 record.


Following the match, WVU will hit the road for a match on Saturday, Oct. 29, with Notre Dame.
