Mountain West Women's Soccer Weekly Release No. 2
Aug. 21, 2012
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
Mountain West women's soccer teams posted a collective 9-5-2 record over the first weekend of regular-season action. Seven of the nine victories were shutouts, with Air Force and San Diego State accounting for two apiece.
- Air Force is off to a 2-0 start for the second straight season and third time in the last 10 years after kicking off the home portion of its schedule with back-to-back shutouts of Lamar (3-0) and Montana (1-0).
- Boise State captured the crown at its own Holiday Inn Classic, defeating New Mexico State (1-0) and North Dakota State (4-1), giving the Broncos a 2-0 start for the first time since opening the 2008 season with a similar mark. The four goals BSU scored against NDSU were the most since a 6-0 shutout of New Mexico State on Oct. 8, 2010.
- New Mexico's season-opener against TCU ended in a 1-1 tie after a lightning storm forced a 62-minute delay between the end of regulation and the start of overtime. The Lobos also dropped a 2-0 decision to Texas Tech in their first road outing of 2012, marking the first time UNM has fallen to TTU since the 2001 season.
- UNLV split its first two home matches, blanking Northern Arizona (2-0) before dropping a 5-4 decision to Hawai`i. The nine combined goals in the Hawai`i contest tied a UNLV record for most in a single match (9-0 win vs. Nevada on Sept. 8, 2002).
