Box Score

San Diego State, Calif. - The University of New Mexico women's soccer team fell to San Diego State 1-0 in overtime Sunday afternoon in San Diego, Calif. The Lobos (5-8-0, 1-2 Mountain West Conference) return to Albuquerque, N.M. this weekend to host their last two home matches of the season at the UNM Soccer Complex.

In the first and second half of the game, neither team left any opportunities open for scoring. UNM goalkeeper Kristen Winters had five saves in the game against the Aztecs while SDSU's Sophia Perez had three.

SDSU outshot UNM 14 to 6 and had five corner kicks compared to New Mexico's one.

The overtime was the first for the Lobos this season. San Diego State's Jen Klunder captured the game-winning goal at the 93rd minute that appeared to be scored while she was offsides, but no call was made. Ashley Cooper and Lisa Nielsen each had the assist.

"In the first half, San Diego State started off fast and we looked nervous after losing Friday's match (vs. UNLV)," said UNM head coach Kit Vela. "We dominated in the second half. The goal scored in overtime was questionable, but I'm very proud of our girls because they kept fighting."

New Mexico hosts Utah on Thursday, October 21 at 6 p.m. (MDT) and BYU on Saturday, October 23 at 11 a.m. (MDT).
