LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State soccer team fell 1-0 despite outshooting the Idaho Vandals on Sunday, Oct. 27 at the NM State Soccer Complex.

The Aggies managed to outshoot the Vandals 18-7 with seven shots on goal. Juniors Jennae Cambra and Layla Todd each had four shots on the game, two on goal and senior Mary Kate Koziol had two shots during the 90 minutes.

“Tactically, we did everything we wanted to do attacking wise and we outshot them 18-7 and it could have even been more than that,” head coach Blair Quinn said. “We just have to figure out how to tuck one away. That’s the most frustrating thing about this game sometimes – to play that hard and that long and the best team doesn’t always win because it only takes one goal.”

Idaho got the game-winning goal in the 67th minute of play. The goal was off a long pass for a shot about 15 yards out.

“My kids played hard. They played awesome and I am proud of them. At the same time, I am sad for them that they didn’t get out of this game what I thought they deserved.”

NM State (4-12-2; 1-7-1 WAC) concludes its regular season at home with Utah Valley on Friday, Nov. 1 at 3 p.m. and Bakersfield on Nov. 3 at 1 p.m.
