The University of Wyoming soccer team dropped a 1-0 contest to Portland State Friday afternoon on a neutral field at the Soccer Etc.-Nike Invitational in Boise, Idaho.

The Cowgirls move to 4-3-1 on the season while Portland State improves to 3-4-0.

The Vikings took advantage of their offensive attack in the 72nd minute when PSU's Amanda Dutra received a pass from Emily Dent. Dutra was straight on when she took the shot that got past UW keeper Courtney Merkle for the goal.

Neither team was able to get a strong offensive attack going in the game. Both teams took 10 shots, three on goal for the Cowgirls while Portland State had four.

The Vikings controlled the ball enough to take four corner kicks. UW did not have a corner kick opportunity in the game.

Wyoming will continue to stay in Boise for their next game against host school Boise State on Sunday. First kick between the Cowgirls and Broncos is set for Noon.
