Box Score

Missoula, Mont. - Natasha Kai's goal with less than a minute remaining in the first half proved to be the game-winner as Hawai'i outlasted New Mexico 1-0 in the first game of the Montana Invitational this afternoon. UNM goalkeeper Kristen Winters played all 90 minutes and made four saves for the Lobos (3-5-0). Hawaii improved to 6-2-1 on the year.

Kai's presence was the difference in the game as the Hawai'i junior recorded 8 of the Rainbow Wahine's 14 shots. New Mexico had several opportunities off of corner kicks where it held a 6-4 advantage over Hawai'i.

Early in the second half, the Lobos were forced to play one player short after sophomore defender Samantha Sullivan received her second yellow card in the 63rd minute.

New Mexico will have a chance to rebound on Sunday when it faces host Montana at 2 p.m. (MDT).
