The second half was more of the same with Winfield taking seven shots on goal to Parkersburg's four. The Generals maintained a significant advantage in ball possession time throughout the final forty minutes.
"We're really conditioned," Boggs said. "So we can run to the ball and get the 50-50s."
Winning the loose balls was something the Winfield players did the entire game.
"I think we outplayed them," Foster said. "We had way more opportunities on goal than they did."
The win went beyond the rankings. This was about how important it is to defeat the Big Reds, who Winfield hadn't defeated since 2004.
"That's a great win for us," Foster said.
"They are always a good team (and) beating them was a pretty good goal this year," said Boggs, who was in elementary school the last time Winfield beat Parkersburg. "It's a huge step, a big confidence builder."
Taylor put Winfield up 2-0 at the 34:52 mark of the second half. Garrett Kruger kept the Big Reds' hopes alive with an unassisted score just two minutes later.
Preston Sheldon gave the Generals some breathing room with an unassisted scored with 24:54 remaining.
Boggs finished with six saves and Strobl 11.
Winfield faces another tough test Thursday when ninth-ranked South Charleston (5-3-0) visits.
