[WEST VIRGINIA-CONNECTICUT] No. 1 Connecticut suffered its first loss of the season when it fell to West Virginia, 2-0, in front of 1,719 fans on Tuesday evening at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.
 
The Mountaineers held Connecticut (13-1-1) to just five shots on goal, including only one in the second half, and became the first team in almost three years to score as many as two goals against the Huskies.
 
“Not only did we execute the game plan, we carried the bulk, momentum and tempo of the game, and that was really important for us,” West Virginia coach Marlon LeBlanc said. “They are a very dynamic and explosive team and I thought we did a fantastic job of neutralizing what they did well and really played to our strengths.”

West Virginia, now 4-1-1 against UConn under LeBlanc, opened the scoring the 34th minute when midfielder Shadow Sebele scored on a penalty kick for his sixth goal of the season.
 
“This is going to give us a lot of confidence going forward,” Sebele said. “We knew this was the best defensive team in the nation, so scoring two goals against them and having a shutout is big for us.”

Defender Eric Schoenle added an insurance goal on a header in the 78th minute.
