LAS CRUCES, N.M. (Oct. 29)-In the regular season finale, the New Mexico State soccer team fell to Louisiana Tech, 2-0, on senior night. Following the match the Aggies honored senior midfielders Baili Foutz and Nina Yanes, who played their final contest for the Crimson and White.


The Aggies concluded the 2010 season with a 7-8-3 overall record and 1-6-1 WAC record. The Lady Techsters moved to 15-5-0 and 5-3-0 in the conference, and they return to Ruston, La., to host the WAC Tournament next week.


“It was a tale of two halves,” head coach Michael Needham said. “I thought we came out a little flat, and we made two bad mistakes in the first half and they punished us for it.”


Louisiana Tech posted a 2-0 lead at halftime after goals in the 26th and 43rd minute. The Aggies recorded a 4-3 advantage in shots on goal but couldn’t capitalize.


“I thought we did a great job in the second half of putting them under a lot of pressure,” he said. “Sometimes the ball goes in the net and sometimes it doesn’t.”


The Aggies will have 26 players returning to the squad next season after a successful second year.


“This season was definitely a step forward,” Needham said. “It was very positive. I thought we improved on the attacking side of the ball. We also found places we need to get better.”
