ALBUQUERQUE — On the heels of the program’s first regular-season loss at home in nearly two years, the fifth-ranked were looking for an answer at home against Denver University (5-3-3).
The Lobos had to wait 106 minutes Sunday afternoon before getting the game’s only goal from Devon Sandoval.
Sandoval, a senior from Albuquerque, recorded his fourth game-winning goal of the season after capitalizing on a defensive miscue by the Denver back line.
A Pioneer defender misplayed a long Michael Calderon ball, which bounced long off his chest to Sandoval, who buried it for his eighth goal of the season.
“I felt it was a deserving win, and I thought we played really well,” said Lobo head coach Jeremy Fishbein. “Today was eerily similar to Friday in that we created a lot of great chances but didn’t put them in the net.”
Sandoval’s goal in double overtime ended a contest that saw the Lobos miss out on several scoring opportunities. UNM out-shot Denver 18-11 and held an 11-4 advantage in corner kicks.
After a slow-paced opening ten minutes of play, the Lobos began to threaten on deep attacking runs. On several occasions Lobo players elected to pass instead of shoot.
