HOBBS, N.M. (Oct. 12, 2019) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's soccer team fell to University of the Southwest (USW) 1-0 on Saturday. The Saints drop to 7-4-1 on the season and 4-2 in Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) play. The Mustangs improve to 7-4-1 overall and 4-0-1 in conference.
Head Coach Arthur Salazar commented on the game saying, "Once again we struggled to find the back of the net, and it cost us. That being said, I was proud of their efforts. We made some tactical changes and the team responded well, limiting a very aggressive USW team. Unfortunately, we just weren't clean enough to take advantage of the opportunities we created."
The Saints recorded two more shots on goal than the Mustangs despite the loss. OLLU's defense didn't allow a corner kick from Southwest and had three of their own. Southwest stopped all five shots faced and scored the game-winning goal at the 75th minute from Kimberly Nevarez. This is the first time this season the Saints have lost back-to-back conference matches.
