Oct. 17, 2004
LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team lost to the UNLV Rebels, 3-1, Sunday afternoon at the Peter Johann Memorial Soccer Field in Las Vegas, Nev.
With the loss, the Cowgirls fall to 7-5-4 overall and 1-2 in the Mountain West Conference, while UNLV improves to 10-3-2 and 3-1 in MWC play.
UNLV came out and got the best of the Cowgirls on the offensive end throughout the match, outshooting Wyoming 25-9. They scored their first goal of the game at the 22:48 mark of the first half when Annii Magliulo headed a rebound into the back of the Cowgirl net. Erica Frizzell and Jessica Brown picked up assists on the goal. Jessica Destito put the Rebels up 2-0, with a goal at the 33:42 mark on an Ashley O'Harrow assist. The Cowgirls trailed 2-0 at the half.
The Cowgirls, playing without center defender Kristen Stangl who was injured against San Diego State, could not find an answer to the UNLV offense and they scored a insurance goal in the 83rd minute to go up 3-0. Frizzell put a Magliulo cross into the back of the Cowgirl net for the goal. Wyoming junior Mercy Adetoye put the Cowgirls on the board in the 89th minute when she beat two Rebel defenders and scored on a breakaway. The goal however was to little and too late and the Cowgirls fell to the Rebels by a final score of 3-1.
"Today wasn't our best day, we came out a little sluggish," said UW head coach Anne Moore. "We weren't as organized on defense as we normally are because of some injuries and that really hurt us. Hopefully we can come back, have a good week of practice, and have better performances as we close out the regular season at home."
The Cowgirls will return to Laramie to close out the regular season
with three MWC matches at home. They will play host to BYU this
Thursday and to Utah on Saturday. Thursday's game is set for 3 p.m.
and Saturday's game will begin at 1 p.m. Both games will be played
at the UW Soccer Stadium. The Cowgirls will close out the regular
season against New Mexico on Saturday, Oct. 3.
