SPOKANE, Wash. -
The University of Wyoming Cowgirls won their second game in a row Sunday afternoon as they defeated Gonzaga 1-0 in Spokane, Washington.
Senior Amanda Lathrop scored a very early goal at the 8:32 mark to get the only goal of the game for both teams. The score came on a corner kick from sophomore Nichole Rice, and Lathrop put the ball into the right side of the net. Lathrop had three goals this weekend in the two wins.
"It was nice to get the early goal from Lathrop and play with a lead early in the game," said UW head coach Danny Sanchez. "Our defense played well today. They were able to withstand the pressure that Gonzaga put on us after the early goal."
Senior goalkeeper Jamie Scarcliff had three saves in the victory. Scarcliff and the rest of the Wyoming defense shutout both opponents this weekend.
"It's great to win two games on the road against quality teams," Sanchez continued. "We played well in both games and I am pleased with our play."
Wyoming will travel to Pocatello, Idaho to play in the Idaho State Classic for their next two games. First they will take on Utah Valley State on Friday, September 19 at 4 p.m., and then will play host school Idaho State on Sunday starting at 2 p.m.
