Nevada Falls To New Mexico

Posted: Updated:

 

The University of Nevada soccer team fell to the New Mexico Lobos 1-0 Sunday afternoon.

 "Our possessions were poorly executed in the opening half," head coach Dr. Melissa Price said.  "We made some changes at halftime that resulted in us creating more opportunities, but ultimately fell short of our goal."

 With the loss, Nevada drops to (4-8-1, 0-2 MW), while New Mexico improves to (8-4-1, 2-0 MW).

 New Mexico jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, as Natalie Jenks deflected a shot by Stephanie Rowe past sophomore Melanie Bertrand at the 2:45 minute mark. Bertrand recorded her first career start at goalkeeper for Nevada. The Wolf Pack held a five to three shot advantage over the Lobos in the opening half, but could not capitalize as the team entered halftime scoreless.

 Nevada began the second period aggressive on the offensive end by creating multiple shots. Wolf Pack junior Chelsea Fricke's header in the 67th minute nearly tied the match, but it sailed just wide of the net. The New Mexico defense was solid down the stretch, as the Lobos claimed the 1-0 win.

 The Wolf Pack will travel to Laramie, Wyo., to face the Cowgirls Friday at 2 p.m.
