Four minutes in the second half was all the RedHawks of Miami (Ohio) University needed to beat the Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team on Friday night, 2-1 at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex.

Wyoming went into the locker room at the end of the first half leading 1-0 after out shooting the RedHawks 14-1. "I told the team in the locker room that the RedHawks are a second half team and they will come out firing in the first five minutes," UW head coach Anne Moore said. "We had a total let down and it cost us."

Miami came out of the second half gates strong and scored two quick goals within the first four minutes. Senior Katie Boyd scored both goals, the first at the 48:16 mark and the second at the 49:16 mark. Sophomore Danielle Hays had the first assist and freshman Jodi Zwingelberg had the second RedHawk assist.

"The first goal was a mis-touch by us on a corner kick, the second was just a lack of marking players on the back post," Cowgirl senior defender Carolyn Clarke said.

The Cowgirls scored their only goal in the 24th minute by sophomore Tamika Wilson, her first of the year. "I just tried to create space on the backside and Comfort (Adetoye) did a good job of finding me," Wilson said.

The Cowgirls will get a chance to break a two-game losing streak Sunday as they take on the Lady Monarchs of Old Dominion. Game time is set for 11:00 a.m. at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex.
