Morgantown, WV - West Virginia rallied for three second-half goals Friday night to defeat Cal State Fullerton, 3-1, in the Big East Partners Weekend men's soccer event at West Virginia.
The Mountaineers improved to 3-2 by getting goals from Moeryhan Doue in the 54th and 72nd minutes and then a late own goal. Fullerton fell to 0-3-2 despite Nick Posthuma's third goal of the seaon in the 26th minute.
"I thought the first half was some of our best play up to this point in the season," said CSF Head Coach Bob Ammann. "Our game plan was executed perfectly and the goal was superb.
"A terrible decision gave West Virginia the equalizer and, unfortunately, completely changed the momentum of the game."
The Titans have lost two matches in a row by the same formula -- a 1-0 first-half lead disappears to a second half rally by the opponent, first Washington and now WVU.
Trevor Whiddon made 8 saves as the Mountaineers outshot Fullerton.
The Titans play again Sunday morning at 11 a.m.Eastern time against Pittsburgh.
