MOSCOW, Idaho -
The University of Wyoming Cowgirls earned a victory away from the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex as they defeated Idaho 3-0 Friday afternoon in Moscow.
"Today I was very pleased with the effort on offense and defense. We scored on great opportunities and beat a good Idaho team," said UW head coach Danny Sanchez.
The Cowgirls scored early at the 23:18 mark when senior Amanda Lathrop scored her first of two goals on the day on an unassisted play. The Cowgirls had the lead at halftime 1-0.
In the second half junior Emily Layton scored her fourth goal of the season on a pass from Lathrop in the 54th minute. Later Lathrop added her second unassisted goal of the day at the 66:53 minute to put the Cowgirls ahead 3-0. The Cowgirls outshot Idaho 20-6 for the game.
"Our offense played aggressive and took a lot of quality shots," Sanchez continued. "I feel like we have some momentum now going into the next game."
Senior Jamie Scarcliff was back as the Cowgirls goalkeeper after suffering an injury against Montana last Sunday. She played the entire 90 minutes and had one save. Scarcliff and the Cowgirls allowed only one Idaho shot in the second half.
Wyoming will continue the road trip on Sunday when they take on Gonzaga. The game between the Cowgirls and Bulldogs will be the fifth meeting between the two schools. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. in Spokane, Wash.
