Men's soccer: Lobos end Missouri State's shutout streak in 1-0 win

The Missouri State Bears had gone 411 minutes and 26 seconds without allowing a goal. Friday night, the Lobos put a stop to that shutout streak in a 1-0 victory over Missouri State. New Mexico (4-1-1) defeated MSU (1-2-2) 1-0 with a second-half goal during their first match of the TLC Plumbing & Utility Invitational.

Sports Issue: Coach constructs culture for new Lobo soccer

Heather Dyche never coached a NCAA Division I soccer team before the 2015 season, but that doesn't diminish her qualifications. She’s been around the game for quite a while. A coach licensed with organizations like the U.S. Soccer Federation, CONCACAF, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and the U.S. Youth Soccer Association, the Albuquerque native also served as an assistant for the U14 U.S. national team. Her playing days included a stop at Florida State University.

Junior midfielder Christopher Wehan once again came to the rescue scoring his fifth goal of the season, giving the UNM Lobos (2-1-1) a 1-0 overtime win against the Cal State Northridge Matadors (1-3-0). This was an even game when it came to shots, at least on paper.

Men's soccer: Lobos to battle unscored-upon Lions

This past weekend, the Lobos (1-1-1) played in the Grange & Ashwill Memorial Invitational and became co-champions, along with the University of Denver (3-0-1). The Lobos finished the tournament with a 2-2 draw with then-No. 18 San Diego and a 2-1 win against UC Santa Barbara.

Men's Soccer: Lobos score first season win against Santa Barbara

The UNM men’s soccer team got its first win of the season Sunday night after defeating No. 19 UC Santa Barbara 2-1. This win was made possible thanks to redshirt junior midfielder Christopher Wehan’s second brace of the weekend. The first half of the match was even in shots, with six coming from each side. But the Gauchos took a 1-0 lead during the 23rd minute when sophomore forward Ahinga Selemani struck from about 22 yards away.

Women's soccer: Lobos cruise past Idaho State for second win

New Mexico’s sound defense provided plenty of problems for Idaho State’s offense en route to a 4-1 victory on Thursday afternoon at the UNM Soccer Complex. Following a troubling 4-0 loss against Colorado on August 30, UNM bounced back to blow out the Bengals, playing mainly on ISU’s side of the field.

The University of New Mexico men’s soccer team will play San Diego and UC Santa Barbara for its first two home matches this weekend at the Grange & Ashwill Memorial Invitational. The Lobos are coming off a 0-1 loss on Saturday to No. 1 UCLA.

Women's soccer: Lobos must clean up play at the 18s, coach says

At this early stage in the women’s soccer team, head coach Heather Dyche acknowledges that there are some things her team needs to work on. Among them, Dyche said, the Lobos need to clean up their play inside the 18-yard box. Issues inside both UNM’s box defensively and Colorado’s box offensively plagued the Lobos in Sunday’s 4-0 loss at Colorado, she said. “I think they were the better team,” Dyche said at the first coaches’ luncheon of the year on Tuesday at University Stadium. “I’m not trying to say we deserved to win that game, but I think a 4-0 result would suggest it was a 4-0 game, and it wasn’t. We created enough. We had some brilliant opportunities and we didn’t put them away."

Men's soccer: Starting keeper sets his own bar high

Goalie: the position that can take you from hero to zero and back again in less than five seconds. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. And sophomore Jason Beaulieu has been doing it 10 years. Beaulieu is the starting goalie for New Mexico. He is in his second season at UNM, but he’s quickly becoming one of the most accomplished goalies in Lobo history. Last season, Beaulieu ended with a 6-4-0 record, which earned him the second most wins ever by a freshman keeper in program history.

Women's soccer: Lobos off to rocky start after Colorado

So far, the nonconference schedule for the New Mexico women’s soccer team is proving to be as challenging as advertised. The Lobos gave up four goals -- two in each half -- and failed to score in a shutout loss at Colorado on Sunday. UNM (1-3) opened its season with two losses to No. 1 Florida State and then No. 15 Texas Tech, with road tests at Minnesota and Michigan State still looming.
