Mountain West Women's Soccer Weekly Release
San Diego State Wins Third Straight MW Women's Soccer Championship
San Diego State’s Katie Perry scored in the 96th minute to break a scoreless tie and propel No. 1 San Diego State past No. 2 Wyoming 1-0 in the 2014 MW Women’s Soccer Championship match on Oct. 8 at the SDSU Sports Deck.
Perry, a senior midfielder, was moved into scoring range off a nice touch from sophomore forward Morgan Darling and settled the ball with a pair of dribbles before she let loose a shot from just outside the 18-yard box. Wyoming junior goalkeeper Alex Boehm dove and managed to get a piece of the ball with her right hand, but it wasn’t enough to keep it from crossing the goal line and earning San Diego State (15-4-2) its third straight MW Women’s Soccer tournament title. For her efforts, Perry was named Most Valuable Player of the 2014 MW Women’s Soccer Championship.
The Aztecs, who earned the Conference’s automatic bid with the tournament title, have also won the last three MW regular-season championships.
