WAYNESBURG, PA -
Frostburg State continued its recent stretch of strong play with a 2-0 shutout of host Waynesburg Thursday afternoon.
The Bobcats improved to 7-4-2 with the win and are 7-1-2 in their last 10 matches after opening the season with three straight one-goal losses.
Sophomore Matt Moffa (Baltimore, Md./Eastern Tech) began the scoring in the eighth minute when he found the net off an assist from junior Jamie Romano (John Carroll/Joppatowne, Md.). The tally marked Moffa's team-high eighth goal of the year. It was also his third game-winning goal of the season.
Fellow sophomore Kodjo Gnatiko (Montgomery Village, Md./Montgomery Blair) completed the scoring in the 70th minute.
Sophomore Bryn Varhol (Alexandria, Va./Bishop O'Connell) made two saves to earn the shutout.
The Bobcats held a 15-2 advantage in shots over the Yellow Jackets (5-11) and posted their third shutout in their last four matches.
"We knocked the ball around really well and did a good job of switching the point of attack through the midfield," said Bobcat head coach Keith Byrnes. "However, we still need to improve on creating opportunities inside the 18-yard box."
The Bobcats return to action Saturday when they host defending Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference champion Pitt-Greensburg at 3:00 pm. FSU is currently tied with Penn State Behrend for first in the AMCC at 4-0, while UPG is second at 4-1.
