ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (UNLVRebels.com) - New Mexico scored the lone goal of the game in the 11th minute, as the Lobos (7-4-3, 1-0-1 MW) handed the UNLV women's soccer team (5-8-2, 1-1 MW) a 1-0 loss on Saturday afternoon in Mountain West action at the UNM Soccer Complex.
Jennifer Williams scored the goal for New Mexico, as she received a pass from Natalie Jenks on the left side, and sent a shot across the goal to the right corner for the score.
