WATCH No. 1 Charleston (WV)'s game-winning header from Williams N'Dah

  Williams N'Dah played the hero for Charleston (WV) with a last-second header for the game-winner.

The No. 1-ranked Charleston (WV) soccer team moved to 5-0 Thursday night. It wasn't in typical Golden Eagles fashion though.

Charleston won its first four games this season, outscoring its opponents 11-1. The Golden Eagles hadn't allowed a goal in three straight matches. That wasn't the case Thursday.

Unranked Wheeling Jesuit hung with DII soccer's best team right up to the final minute. Despite an all-out 29-shot assault, Wheeling Jesuit keeper Tyler Shotwell deterred most of the Golden Eagles attack, making 10 saves while allowing just one goal.

That was until there were a mere four seconds remaining on the clock. 

Freshman midfielder Keiran Bywater lauched a corner kick to the middle of the box where Williams N'Dah rose up and sent the shot into the net to clinch a 2-1 win. Sometimes even the best teams need a hero, and Thursday night that honor went to N'Dah.

Charleston looks to remain unbeaten in another Mountain East Conference matchup on Sunday at Shepherdstown, West Virginia against Shepherd.
