LAS CRUCES, N.M. (Sept. 17)-The New Mexico State soccer team defeated Alabama A&M, 8-0, and tied the school record for goals in a match. Sophomore midfielder/forward Crystal Burns scored a match-high two goals for NM State.


The Aggies improved to 4-1-2 on the season while the Lady Bulldogs fell to 0-8-0. This is NM State’s second consecutive shutout, and freshman goalkeeper Erin Wosick recorded her second career shutout.


Burns gave the Aggies a 1-0 lead less than two minutes into the match on a free kick from 32-yards away on the left side. Freshman forward Kristen Powers scored her first goal of the season on a penalty kick at the six-minute mark.


“This was a tale of two halves,” head coach Michael Needham said. “After halftime, we came out with the urgency we needed, and scoring six goals in 45 minutes is impressive.”


In the second half, freshman defender Olivia Sierra scored on a corner kick in the 48th minute to increase the Aggie advantage to 3-0. The goal was a career first for Sierra.


At the 51st-minute mark, Subu recorded her first goal of the year on a free kick when senior midfielder Baili Foutz found her on the left side of the field that allowed Subu to tap it around the goalie.


Burns scored her second goal of the match in the 60th minute on a strike from 15 yards, and then freshman midfielder/forward Dani De La Vina followed with the Aggies’ sixth goal in the 62nd minute.


Redshirt freshman Lauren Allen and sophomore forward Cassie De Leon scored in the 79th and 86th minute, respectively, for their first goals of the season.


The Aggies continue non-conference play when they host Lamar, Sunday, Sept. 19.
