NMSU Soccer Falls To Albany 3-1

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

TUCSON, AZ - The New Mexico State women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision against Albany in Tucson, Ariz., Sunday afternoon.

"It was another tough one for us," said head coach Rob Baarts. "We're starting to move the ball well and creating a lot of opportunities but just not scoring. Unfortunately, when that happens the other team goes down and scores."

NM State (0-2-0) had a chance to start the scoring, but a shot from Micaela Milavec in the 24th minute went wide before Albany (2-0-0) was able to get on the board in the 35th when Mariah Williams scored.

The Aggies had a few opportunities to tie it up before halftime, but Kelly Burton's shot in the 39th minute went wide while freshman Sarah Trent's shot was blocked by the Albany defense before it could reach goal in the 41st minute.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

SAN DIEGO, CA - The New Mexico State Women’s soccer team battled all night, but gave up a late goal in a 1-0 loss against San Diego State Friday night at the San Diego State Sports Deck.

“We let one slip,” said head coach Rob Baarts. “To be fair, we had a great performance, we battled in the first half and played very well in the second half and just couldn’t get it done.”

The Aztecs (1-0-0), who were the preseason favorites to win the Mountain West Conference, set the tone early and controlled the first 20 minutes of the match, but a red card in the 22nd minute against SDSU’s Chloe Frisch seemed to change the momentum. Immediately following Frisch’s sending off, Aileen Galicia had a chance but her header missed high in the 23rd minute.

NM State (0-1-0) had another chance to take the lead before halftime but Emma Smith’s volley in the 39th minute sailed just over the crossbar.  Continue Reading This Post >>
