LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team was unable to win their fourth game in a row on Sunday, as they lost to New Mexico 1-0 at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex.
In the first half both teams had few chances to score. Wyoming had three shots in the first half while New Mexico had five. The only goal came off a corner kick when New Mexico's Jael Fanning got the ball to Samanta Bevis who was able to get past Cowgirl goalkeeper Jamie Scarcliff at the 23:07 mark.
"New Mexico deserves all the credit, there weren't a lot of chances in this game, but they took care of the ball," said UW head coach Danny Sanchez. "There are only so many 1-0 games you can win and eventually one will go against you."
In the second half the Cowgirls had scoring opportunities by taking four corner kicks and taking 13 shots, but were unable to tie the game.
"We played with a little more urgency at the end but it was too little too late," Sanchez said. "Today was a game that could have gone either way. We need to bounce back and get ready for the week ahead."
The Cowgirls drop to 8-6-1 overall and 2-1 in the conference. New Mexico advances to 7-3-4 and 2-1 in MWC play.
Up next the Cowgirls will travel to UNLV and San Diego State. On Friday the Cowgirls will take on the Rebels at 5 p.m., and Sunday will play San Diego State at 2 p.m.
