The University of Wyoming soccer team looks to bounce back after a 3-1 defeat to Northern Colorado in Cheyenne on Tuesday night. The Cowgirls are hoping to keep their home winning streak alive as they will play host to Idaho State on Friday afternoon at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex. Kickoff is slated for a 4 p.m. start.

"Idaho State is a very hardworking, gritty team similar to Northern Colorado," Cowgirl soccer head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "We have to prove we can handle a team like that."

The Cowgirls have won nine straight matches at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex. UW is 3-0 this season at home. Wyoming has outscored opponents 6-2 at home this season and have not allowed more than one goal in a match on their home pitch in four-straight matches dating back to last season.

UW has been successful on the offensive end, scoring at least one goal in five of their seven games. The Cowgirls have not allowed three goals in one game since Oct. 24, 2014, against San Diego State. Wyoming is 3-3-1 all-time against Idaho State.

The Bengals are led by Maria Sanchez with seven goals on the season. She has also accumulated three assists. ISU will come into Laramie with a 1-6-1 record. The Bengals beat Westminster College for their only win on the season. Idaho State beat the Cowgirls 3-2 at their last meeting in Pocatello.
