Wyoming outshot their opponent for the seventh time this season, but fell short losing to New Mexico 1-0 in Albuquerque Friday night. The Cowgirls fell to 5-7-0, 0-1-0 in the MWC, while the Lobos improved to 7-2-2, 1-0-0 in the MWC.

"This game can be so incredibly frustrating it is hard to bear it," UW head coach Anne Moore said. "We played great soccer tonight and just couldn't get a break. We made one save tonight, they made three, everything else just missed."

The lone goal of the night was scored at the 52:31 mark by Lobo freshman Alexis Ball, her fifth of the year. Ball headed a corner kick past UW keeper Jamie Scarcliff for the game winning goal.

Wyoming was led by sophomore Emily Layton with five shots and junior Tamika Wilson with four shots.

Not only did the Cowgirls outshot the Lobos, they attempted nine corner kicks and were unable to score.

"We had three shots go off the post tonight and several other shots just miss," Moore continued. "We are playing so hard and if we continue to compete the way we have been, good things are going to happen to us."

The Cowgirls will travel to Colorado Springs, Colo. to face the Air Force Falcons on Sunday, October 14, at 12 p.m. The Falcons dropped their second Mountain West contest Friday night losing to the San Diego State Aztecs 2-0. Air Force is 2-9-2, 0-2-0 in the MWC.
