SAN ANTONIO - After falling behind in the first minute of the match, the Utah State soccer team was not able to recover and lost to the University of Texas at San Antonio, 1-0, in San Antonio on Friday.
With the loss, the Aggies fall to 3-2-1, while the Roadrunners improve to 3-3 with the home win. USU is in the midst of a three-match winless streak after losses to UTSA and No. 20 Oklahoma State and a tie against Wyoming. The series with the Roadrunners is now tied 1-1 with both teams winning on their home field.
"Their early goal really put us on our heels, and we had to press the entire rest of the game," USU head coach Heather Cairns said. "They didn't have to worry about creating and did a good job of limiting our opportunities. The outcome was a result of two things the opportunities that they gave us we didn't do enough with them, and the opportunities that they gave us were few and far between."
UTSA capitalized on their first possession and their first shot on goal less than a minute into the match. Junior forward Allison Dillion took a corner kick from freshman forward Kara Hoffman and put the ball in the back of the net, slipping the ball past USU sophomore goalkeeper Molli Merrill.
Utah State had 17 shots attempts, 12 of which came in the second half. UTSA goalkeeper Dacia Webb posted her second-straight shutout, keeping the Aggies from tying the match with three consecutive saves early on in the stanza and two crucial stops in the last 10 minutes of the match. Webb made eight saves in the match.
The Roadrunners would go to play with a lead for 89 minutes.
Junior Aleena Shelton saw her first action as an Aggie in the second half, taking over goalkeeping duties from Merrill in the second half. Shelton had three saves and did not allow a goal. The two USU goalkeepers combined for five saves.
The Aggies remain on the road for a match against Houston Baptist on Sunday, Sept. 13. This is the first meeting between the Huskies and the Aggies. The following week, the Aggies head to the home state of junior forward Lauren Hansen. USU takes on Washington on Friday, Sept. 18 before facing Seattle University on Sunday, Sept. 20.
