LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming women's soccer team (7-6-1, 5-1-0 MW) will return on the road at Fresno State and San Jose State this weekend. The Cowgirls will play Fresno State on Friday at 8 p.m. MT and Sunday at San Jose State at 1 p.m. The Cowgirls are coming off two-consecutive wins this past weekend at home against Colorado College and Air Force. UW's freshman forward Kaitlyn Lomsnes scored three of her team-leading six goals last weekend and has three assists on the season.
"Fresno is 2-1 in its last three games and San Jose has some good results at home," UW head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "Every Mountain West game is a tough game, especially when you get on the road. We will approach every game with a business mentality and bring the same level of play to each game."
Last time vs. Fresno State: Wyoming trails in the series, 0-2-1, with last meeting on Oct. 18, 2013, for a scoreless draw. In that match-up, UW recorded a season-high of 19 shots and controlled the match, limiting the Bulldogs to five shots.
The Bulldogs fell 2-1 in overtime to Utah State on Sunday at the Chuck and Gloria Bell Field in Logan, Utah.
