Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State Aggies saw UTEP collect three goals in the last 24 minutes as the Miners upended the Aggies 3-1 on Wednesday afternoon at the NM State Soccer Athletic Complex.

The Aggies (1-6) held control of the match for the first 60 minutes of play, but the Miners (4-3) started controlling possession, then began firing away.

The Miners collected goals off of three set pieces, a throw-in and two corner kicks, and handed the Aggies their sixth loss of the season.

“We didn’t have much effort in the second half,” said a disappointed NM State Head Coach Freddy Delgado. “We come so far and played some very good teams very hard and very aggressive, but I don’t know who came out the second half. That’s not what we’ve shown this year.”

The Aggies opened the match strong battling the more physical Miners evenly, then got the advantage on their own set piece.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State Aggies played 70 strong minutes on Friday, but Weber State took advantage of some Aggie errors to grab a 3-1 victory in non-conference play at the NM State Soccer Athletic Complex.

"We lost our focus for about 20 minutes in the game and it cost us," said NM State soccer coach Freddy Delgado. "We played well for 70 minutes and our attacking was fluid. We just have to find a way to play well for 90 minutes."

The Wildcats (3-2) grabbed the advantage with two goals less than 30 minutes in the game.

Weber State's Mackenzie Harrison got a strong feed from Madison Garlock and Stacy Blair for the contest's first goal in the 27th minute.

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

MOSCOW, ID - The New Mexico State women’s soccer team fell at the hands of Idaho 3-0 on Friday at Guy Wicks Stadium.

The Aggies, who were traveling for the first time this season, started the match a little sluggish, allowing two first-half goals to the Vandals to fall behind early. The young NM State squad showed signs of young it is and could never recover from the two-goal deficit.

“Tonight’s game was two completely different halves,” Aggie head coach Freddy Delgado said. “It took us a half to get used to the physicality, speed and direction of the game. I expected games like this early in the season because we are a young team.”

NM State was outshot 25-9, but seven of those nine shots were on goal. Freshmen Audrey Chavez and Aileen Galicia both came off the bench and had some good production on the pitch as Chavez finished with three shots on goal while Galicia added a couple more.  Continue Reading This Post >>
