The University of Wyoming Cowgirl Soccer team was defeated by the James Madison Dukes 3-1 in the opening round of the Comfort Inn Invitational Tournament in Harrisonburg, Va. on Friday night. Wyoming falls to 1-1-0 on the season while the Dukes improved to 4-0-0.

"Tonight's match was very exciting and suspenseful," head coach Anne Moore said. "There was a lot of speed and both teams played well enough to win."

Wyoming junior Tamika Wilson scored Wyoming's lone goal at the 8:15 mark in the second half on a shot just inside the penalty box. Sophomore Emily Layton was credited with an assist on the play.

James Madison took an early 1-0 lead in the first half and then scored two more goals late in the second half to give the Dukes the 3-1 victory. JMU freshman Teresa Rynier scored two goals and assisted on the third score for the Dukes.

"James Madison is a team that likes to play the ball over the top and use their speed to score and that's what they did tonight," Moore continued. "Their keeper came up with some great saves and we can't give the other team so many opportunities to win."

Wyoming will take on the Hofstra Pride tomorrow at 9 a.m. in the Cowgirls final game of the Comfort Inn Invitational. Hofstra improved their record to 3-0-0 by defeating Richmond 2-1 Friday night.
