LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of New Mexico women's soccer team suffered a tough loss to Mountain West Conference foe Wyoming this afternoon in Laramie, Wyo., falling 1-0 in double overtime. The Lobos dropped to 4-6-4, 1-3-1 MWC while the Cowgirls improved to 6-6-3, 2-3 in conference play.
Wyoming scored the golden goal at 105:07 heading into the second overtime. Forward Tamika Wilson, who leads the Cowgirls in game winning goals, scored off a pass from fellow forward Mercy Adetoye.
