Wyoming Soccer Drops Two Over Weekend
Sept. 30, 2001
Wyoming ended a disappointing weekend with two losses, first to Cal State Fullerton on Fri., Sept. 28 and then on Sun., Sept. 30 versus UC Riverside.
Friday's match-up against the Titans resulted in the second shut-out of the season for the Cowgirls. They held off Cal State in the first period, but Erica Jacalone shot one in at 67:05. UW adjusted their playing style, but the Titans went on to score again and win the game, 2-0.
The Cowgirls' could not capitalize on one-on-one opportunities at the goal. Despite five break-away plays, Wyoming was kept goal-less.
"Fullerton is very fast and physical," said Wyoming head coach Anne Moore. "We got pretty beat up. They're a very good team." The Titans improved their record to 4-4-0 with the win, and are now on a three-game winning streak.
Sunday's game versus the University of California at Riverside was additionally challenging. The Highlanders came out immediately and scored a goal only :43 seconds into play.
UW's Sancy Florquist answered back and brought the Cowgirls back in the game at 5:29 when she scored UW's only goal. Florquist leads UW with three goals this season.
Wyoming was unable to score again, and the Highlanders put away the game with shot from Jill Intarachote at 67:08.
"We did not play well," said Moore. "We have a lot of injuries right now,
and those who could play were playing hurt. It's been frustrating. Our
team is trying to get it together, but it's hard right now with all the
injuries we've been having."
The Cowgirls' have two home matches this week, the first a make-up game versus San Francisco on Thurs., Oct. 4 at 1 p.m. in Laramie. Sun., Oct. 7 Denver University makes their way to Cowgirl Field for their 1 p.m. match.
