Junior midfielder Mandy Meyer headed home the game-winner in the 52nd minute to push the Cowgirls past Boise State 1-0 on Friday afternoon at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex. The young Wyoming team broke the all-time season shutout record as they recorded their eighth shutout of the season. UW now holds an overall record of 8-5-4 and a 4-4-1 Mountain West record.

"I thought the team did a fantastic job of following the game plan," Cowgirl soccer head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "It's a great thing to have the most shutouts in school history, especially with having the youngest back line we have ever had."

Meyer's goal came off a rebounded save from Boise State's goalkeeper Janelle Flores. The goal notched Meyer's first score of the year and second of her career.

The Cowgirl's dominated both sides of the pitch outshooting the Broncos 18-9 and only allowing four shots on goal. Wyoming also had the upper hand in corner kicks, recording seven to Boise State's two. Junior forward Laurel Ramer led Wyoming in shots with four, two of which were on goal. Sophomore Kaitlyn Lomsnes recorded three shots, two of which were on goal. Meyer, along with defenders Alisha Bass, Sammi Dunda and Alyssa Murray each tallied two shots throughout the match. Defenders Katie Marcheso and Taylor Burton and midfielder Summer Halle notched one shot of their own. Freshman goalkeeper Cassidy Entsminger, who played all 90 minutes of the match, kept the Broncos scoreless as she recorded four saves on the afternoon.

Wyoming will return to the pitch on Sunday for its last home match of the season to take on the Utah State Aggies. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. MT. The first 100 fans at the game will receive a Poke's mug.
