MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The nationally ranked Martinsburg boys soccer team extended its record to 9-0 on Thursday with a 3-0 victory over Musselman.
Senior goalkeeper Roger Ausherman rarely was called into action in recording his seventh shutout of the season for Martinsburg - ranked No. 1 in West Virginia and 16th by the National Soccer Coaches of America.
The schools battled to a scoreless tie in the opening 40 minutes, but Martinsburg broke the deadlock 10 minutes into the second half on Eliud Vegas' goal from the deep right corner. Teammates Michael Trumble and Maan Amer followed with goals to complete the scoring.
"The defense has been solid all season and they did the job again tonight," Martinsburg coach Greg Miller said. "I thought Matt Yates did a nice job, but the entire defense played well.
