UNM falls to Falcons again, 2-1

-A A +A

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The ninth-ranked University of New Mexico Lobos men’s soccer team lost at the hands of Air Force (6-6-1) for the second time in a week by the score of 2-1 Friday night.
Air Force’s Caleb Downey scored the game-winner in the 75th minute for the Falcons. Downey also tallied the game-winner for Air Force in their overtime win at the UNM  Soccer Complex one week ago.
The loss marks the first time New Mexico has lost to Air Force twice in a season since 2001.
The Lobos suffered their third loss of the season and currently have a record of 9-3-0 (2-2-0 MPSF). They held the advantage in shots (16-11) and corner kicks (7-4) for the match, but it wouldn’t be enough to overcome the Falcons.
The Lobos were out-shot by their opponent (6-5) in the first half for the first time since UNM’s double overtime win over UC Irvine Sept. 16. Of  New Mexico’s five shots, only Matthew Gibbon’s attempt in the ninth minute was on goal.
New Mexico will look to bounce back in their second road match of the weekend. The Lobos will travel to Denver University to face the Pioneers this afternoon.
UNM conceded the match’s first goal in the fifth minute on a 30-yard shot from Kevin Durr.
