RENO, Nev. (Oct. 1)-The New Mexico State soccer team opened WAC play at Nevada with a 2-1 loss in double overtime. The Aggies fall to 6-3-2 and 0-1-0 while the Wolf Pack moved to 6-4-2 and 1-0-0.


The match was scoreless until the 84th minute when senior defender Erin Smith scored for Nevada to take a 1-0 advantage.


The Aggies answered less than a minute later and tied the contest, 1-1, with a strike from freshman forward Kristen Powers on a corner kick from senior midfielder Baili Foutz. The goal was Powers’ second of the season.


“We were pretty resilient and that’s a good thing,” head coach Michael Needham said. “It’s a tough environment, and Nevada is a good team. When they scored, it woke us up. We showed a lot of battle and worked hard, and we’re looking forward to Sunday.”


After a scoreless 10 minutes of extra time, Nevada scored in the 104th minute on Smith’s second goal of the match.


In the defensive struggle, redshirt freshman Mikaela Bitner grabbed a career-high 11 saves.


The Aggies return home to host Utah State, Sunday, Oct. 3 at noon.
