SAN DIEGO, Calif.---The University of New Mexico women's soccer team settled to a 0-0, double-overtime draw in their first game of Mountain West competition. The Lobos are now 6-4-3 on the season and are 0-0-1 in conference games.
Late in the second half UNM looked to score on a free kick, knocking the ball around in the box. Sinead Fleming took a shot from seven yards out that flew over the net.
New Mexico tallied six shots in overtime, while the Aztecs were unable to find a look at the net. In the second overtime period, Brianna Martinez failed to convert on a breakaway shot as the ball landed to the right of the net. Moments later, Jennifer Williams fed the ball to Martinez, who's sliding kick went right of the goal.
With just under six minutes remaining in the double overtime period, Rachel Montoya had a clear look at the net from the left side of the box, but the shot went high. Williams blasted the final shot of the match toward the net, but the attempt was saved by the SDSU keeper.
The Lobos placed two shots on goal, both of which came from Williams, and held the shot advantage 11-9 over SDSU. Williams led all players in the match with four shots.
Goalkeeper Kelli Cornell was credited with four saves in 110 minutes of action.
The Lobos return to the UNM Soccer Complex on Saturday, Oct. 8 as they host Wyoming at 5 p.m.
