The New Mexico State soccer team ended the regular season with a 3-0 loss to Utah State. Utah State scored very quickly with a goal by Shantel Flanary 18 seconds into the match. USU added a second goal just two and a half minutes later at the 2:49 mark as Heather Pond scored from 20 yards out. "We came out a little flat, we gave up a goal in the first 18 seconds which really put us on our heels," said Coach Needham. "To give up a goal in the first 18 seconds and then another one shortly after that, it's the first time we've done that all year, let somebody kind of jump on us."

New Mexico State went into the half trailing 2-0. The Aggies fared better in the second half even though Utah State's Lauren Hansen added a third Utah State goal in the 56th minute to put the UtAgs up 3-0. "We're pretty resilient in the back. We're a bunch of tough kids. We're athletic and we have an outstanding goal keeper. We're typically going to be in games. All credit to Utah State today. They put us under a ton of pressure in the first 10 minutes and scored two goals. That changes the game dramatically and opens it up a little bit."

New Mexico State was outshot 20-8 in the match and was held without a corner kick. Jazmin Cardoso led the Aggies taking five shots, two on goal. Crystal Burns, Kelly Heiman and Yolanda McMillion each attempted shots for the Aggies.

Aggie goal keeper Katie Graul was credited with five saves, three in the first half and two in the second half.

The loss coupled with wins by Boise State and Nevada drop the Aggies to the 5-seed in this week's WAC tournament in Boise, ID. San Jose State will be the No. 1 seed while Utah State earned the No. 2 seed with their victory over New Mexico State today. Nevada will earn the three seed by virtue of a head-to-head win over Boise State in the regular season. Both Boise State and Nevada finish the season with 15 points. The Aggies will be the No. 5 after earning 13 points. Fresno State will be the No. 6 seed after earning 12 points. Fresno State will face host Boise State while New Mexico State will face Nevada in Thursday's quarterfinal action.
