Redshirt senior forward Madisyn Olguin netted an unassisted goal early in the second half against NMSU to lead the New Mexico women's soccer team to its first victory of the season.

Head coach Heather Dyche also won her first game as a Lobo in Wednesday's 1-0 decision in Las Cruces.

It was UNM's fifth straight victory over the in-state rival Aggies.



"It feels really good, but honestly the credit goes to them," Dyche said in a statement, referring to her team. "They put in a lot of hard work to get this result and to give us momentum moving forward."

According to the release recapping the game, Olguin scored in the 46th minute after the Aggie defense halted a junior midfielder Maddie Irwin scoring chance.

Olguin netted her first goal of the season, and it was the second for the Lobos. 

"I thought Maddie's goal was outstanding," Dyche said in the release. "It was a good, composed finish for her."

The Lobos (1-2) fired 16 shots at NMSU's defense, six on goal, while limiting the Aggies to five shots with only one on goal. UNM also attempted seven corner kicks and did not allow NMSU to take any.

In fact, in the first half Irwin had more chances than the whole New Mexico State team. She took four shots with two on goal to NMSU's two shots, none on goal.

Redshirt senior goalie Cassie Ulrich's shutout was the 14th of her career.
