The No. 6 MSU men's soccer team lost its second game and road game of the season to the West Virginia Mountaineers, 1-0. 

This makes the Spartans record 9-2-2 and prevents MSU head coach Damon Rensing from getting his 100th career win at the helm of the Spartan program.

The Mountaineers scored their lone goal on the evening during the 50th minute, thanks to defenseman Albert Andres-Llop. This was Andres-Liop's fifth goal of the season, making him West Virginia's leading scorer this season.

MSU appeared to have a goal in the 75th minute, but the goal was negated by a late offsides call by the referees. Defenseman John Freitag would get a yellow card just after the play, MSU's second on the evening.

Even if the Spartans didn't score a goal, they still led in shots, 10-5, but the Mountaineers led with shots on goal, 3-2. The Spartans also led in corner kicks, 7-4.

The Spartans will look to get back on track this Saturday against the 2-8-2 Penn State Nittany Lions, with kickoff scheduled for 3 p.m. at DeMartin Stadium.
