Soccer Stays Winless On The Road With 1-0 Loss At Eastern Washington
Sept. 5, 2004
CHENEY, Wash. - In spite of outshooting Eastern Washington 20-6, Utah State's soccer team failed to put a shot in the net and subsequently fell to the Eagles, 1-0 here Sunday.
The Aggies remain winless on the road with the loss and drop to 1-3 on the year. The Eagles, meanwhile, improved to 2-2 overall.
"You can't win games when you outshot somebody 20-6 and do not score," said head coach Heather Cairns. "We had our opportunities, but we just couldn't put one in the net."
Eastern Washington recorded what proved to be the game-winning goal at 36:38 of the opening period as freshman Cyeeta Mott scored in the middle of a clustered goalie box off an assist from teammate Jennie Summers.
"We possessed a lot and had enough shots, but in the end, it was a bad mistake and we couldn't overcome that," added Cairns.
EWU goalkeeper Tiera Como recorded the shutout as she had five saves on the day. Keeper Megan Mills went the distance for the Aggies, recording one save.
Charlsie Harris, Utah State's leading scorer thus far, led USU with six shots, while Lacy (Gustaveson) Kennington tallied four. Mott led the Eagles with three shots.
Utah State makes its last stop on its three-game road swing as it travels to Provo, Utah to take on BYU on Tues., Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. (MST)
