Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

CHICAGO, IL - Second half woes continues to hurt the New Mexico State women's soccer team as it dropped a 4-1 decision to UIC Sunday afternoon at Flames Filed.

"I thought we adjusted pretty well in the first half," Aggie head coach Freddy Delgado said. "I was proud of our effort and how we kept fighting in the game. In the second half we started off strong and got the goal, but then we had a mental let down and allowed them to score. As a team, we're still continuing to mature to not let our highs get too high and our lows go too low. We have to do a better job playing at our peak performance no matter the score, time or opponent."  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

SEATTLE, WA - It was a tale of two halves for the New Mexico State women’s soccer team on Sunday at Championship Field against Seattle U as the Aggies fell to the Redhawks, 3-0, despite a solid performance in the second half.

“The thing was we played well in the first half,” said head coach Freddy Delgado. “Of the three goals they had, two were deflections and one was a penalty where we made a mistake.”

The Redhawks got on the board first when Karli White booted a penalty shot past Rian Nials in the 10th minute.

Rebecca Mazzie had a great look on goal at the 24:28 mark, but her strike was saved by SU’s Brianna Smallidge to keep NM State (3-12-0, 2-3-0 WAC) off the board. Shortly after, Seattle U’s Karli White netted her second goal of the day with 25:23 on the clock.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State Aggies attacked the CSU Bakersfield goal relentlessly Friday afternoon, but only netted one score in falling to the Roadrunners 2-1 in Western Athletic Conference action at the NM State Soccer Athletic Complex.

The Aggies (2-9-0, 1-1-0) outshot the Runners (3-6-2, 1-0-1) 22-19 for the day, equaling season highs with those attempts and the 10 shots on goal.

"We created a lot of opportunities, but we're falling one step behind on the attacking side," said NM State Head Coach Freddy Delgado. "Honestly, we should have scored six-to-eight goals today. We had four balls that hit the post. Some say it's bad luck, but I think we need to take that extra piece of concentration and finish those goals. We can't give chances like that away."

The Aggies 10 shots on goal don't count the shots that ricocheted off the posts and crossbar.  Continue Reading This Post >>
