Honored senior vies for bid

In her final year, Lobo women’s soccer forward Jen Williams has high but very reachable expectations. Williams hopes to lead her team to a second Mountain West Conference championship and an NCAA tournament bid for the second straight year. “Our goals for this season are to make it to the NCAA tournament again and to go as far as we can,” she said.


Embattled game ends in overtime

Dominating in every stat does not always lead to victory. The UNM women’s soccer team tied Saint Mary’s 1-1 in overtime on Friday after controlling much of the game and out-shooting the Gaels 26-16 in its regular season opener.

No longer nationally neglected

Sure, the UNM women’s soccer team is well-aware of the significance of Saturday’s game, but there’s no sense in stressing about it. The Lobos, currently 11-1-4, tied Wyoming 1-1 tie Sunday in Laramie, Wyo., extending their undefeated streak to nine games.

Overtime drive grinds out win

Everybody wanted to be like Mike on Friday. With 24 seconds left in the first overtime, defender Michael Reed dribbled past three defenders on the left wing and found midfielder Michael Green in the box for the go-ahead goal, giving the Lobos a 2-1 victory over UNLV at the UNM Soccer Complex. “I got the ball, and I just went at them,” Reed said.

Realigned conference still a rigorous road

If the UNM men’s soccer team took one small step with its nonconference schedule this season, its making one giant leap to reclaim what the Lobos rightfully owned for four years: the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation title. The MPSF restructured the league into two four-team divisions, but that doesn’t matter to the Lobos.

Holmes handles the heat

Lobo goalkeeper Justin Holmes was more worried about the sun than Harvard’s offensive attack Sunday. For nearly 110 minutes, Holmes shut out the Crimson at the UNM soccer complex on Sunday.

Awaiting the Crimson tide

Yet another weekend of rigid competition stands before the UNM men’s soccer team. The Lobos welcome Buffalo on Friday and then face their fifth-ranked opponent this season when they play No.

Portland breaks hearts again

It was better late than never for the visiting Portland Pilots on Sunday at the UNM Soccer Complex. Portland, which defeated the UNM men’s soccer team in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last season, lifted themselves past the Lobos 2-1 again after a late goal by defender Ryan Kawulok. The Pilots scored in the 89th minute with only their third shot on the goal. “It’s a game where you need to take care of your chances.

Slim victory over rookie team

It was a great way to start the rivalry for the UNM women’s soccer team. The Lobos continue to dominate the early part of their 2010 season with a 1-0 victory over in-state rival New Mexico State on Friday at the UNM Soccer Complex. Since the Aggies have only fielded a women’s soccer team for the last two years, UNM head coach Kit Vela said she was disappointed in the lack of Lobo offense. “It was frustrating not to score more,” she said.
