Men's Soccer: Lobos play Friday to keep 2015 season alive

Saying Friday night will be a big one for the UNM men’s soccer team is an understatement. The final game of the season will decide whether or not the team will make the playoffs. UNM (7-5-4, 1-4-2 C-USA) will face Florida Atlantic University at 7 p.m. on Senior Night in hopes of getting a spot in this year’s Conference USA tournament. Only the top seven teams in the conference are admitted, and New Mexico is clinging to a spot, currently sitting in seventh place.

Women's soccer: Lobos advance to Mountain West semifinals

New Mexico kept its season going at the Mountain West women’s soccer tournament Tuesday evening in San Diego, capturing a 2-0 victory over UNLV. Senior Lindsey Guice helped secure the win with the go-ahead goal and an assist on the insurance. The win avenged a loss earlier in the season to UNLV. It also moves No. 3 seed UNM (10-8-1) into the tournament semifinals at 5 p.m. Thursday against San Jose State. The winner moves on to Saturday’s championship bout.

The UNM men’s soccer team gained another Conference USA point after battling to a scoreless draw with Florida International on Saturday night.

Women's soccer: NCAA bid on the line at MW tourney

In all likelihood, the Mountain West will only send one representative to the NCAA women’s soccer tournament. That means the Lobos’ season lives or dies by this week’s Mountain West tournament in San Diego. And if they happen to make it, the Lobos will get some measure of revenge along the way against the only three teams they lost to during the conference schedule. UNM (9-8-1, 7-3-1 MW), as the No. 3 seed, takes on sixth-seeded UNLV Tuesday at 5 p.m. Mountain Time in the tournament’s first round. Should the Lobos advance, they’ll play No. 2 San Jose State on Thursday. UNLV defeated UNM 3-1 on Oct. 4, while SJSU claimed a 2-1 overtime win on Oct. 16.

With just two games left in the regular season, the UNM men’s soccer team is feeling the pressure more than ever. The Lobos (7-5-3, 1-4-1 C-USA) are yet to earn their spot in this year’s Conference USA Championship. The top seven teams in the conference will be able to compete, and although the Lobos are currently in the seventh spot, that could change very quickly—for better or worse.

Women's soccer: Lobos, Spartans in pivotal MW game Friday

New Mexico and San Jose State are both trying to position themselves to knock off three-time Mountain West women’s soccer champ San Diego State.
