Final Stats

PROVO, Utah--The University of New Mexico women's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision to No. 12 BYU in Provo, Utah tonight. The Lobos were shutout for only the second time this season. The loss drops UNM to 10-3-2 on the season and 2-2-0 in Mountain West Conference play. BYU improves to 12-2-2 and moves into first place of the MWC with a record of 3-0-1.

"BYU is a very tough and athletic team," said head coach Kit Vela. "We played with a youthful tentativeness. It wasn't a complete game for us but we had moments of our real self showing. It was a great learning opportunity."

New Mexico fired off seven shots with four on goal against one of the top defenses in the MWC. The Lobos' best opportunity came early in the second half when sophomore Jennifer Williams ripped a shot on frame. Williams' shot barely caught the hands of BYU keeper McKinze Olson. Williams paced the Lobos offensively with three shots on goal.

The New Mexico defense held BYU to just 13 shots in the match.

The Lobos will play Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday at 7 p.m. MT. For more information visit www.GoLobos.com.
