Women’s Soccer: Lobos beat Nevada to extend winning run

“It doesn’t have to be pretty, but you have to find a way to win on Sundays,” UNM head coach Heather Dyche said. The Lobos won their second Mountain West Conference game 1-0 against the University of Nevada. In conference play, teams typically play games on Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Last year, the Lobos only won one of their five Sunday conference games. By comparison, the Lobos performed well on Friday nights last year, winning four of six. Dyche said she wanted her team to learn from last year’s results — that winning on Fridays meant little if the team could not get a result on Sunday.

Men’s soccer: Lobos win their second exhibition game 3-1

The University of New Mexico men’s soccer team took the field last night at their second exhibition game at the UNM Soccer Complex against Colorado School of Mines winning the game 3-1. Although the Lobos dominated early possession in the first half, opportunities were created for both teams to break the deadlock. There were a couple of mix-ups within the Lobos defense which, could have gone either way. However, the visitors failed to capitalize on it. Given this was an exhibition game, teams made sure to utilize different plays and tactics to help them sharpen up for the upcoming season. Both teams made use of their substitutions in the first half to get on the scoreboard, but neither could hit the back of the net.
