• Lobos rebound to top Denver in overtime
    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.

  • ENMU expects penalty
    PORTALES (AP) — Eastern New Mexico University's president says he expects the school to receive some form of punishment from the NCAA because of eligibility issues it discovered with many student-athletes. Steven Gamble tells the Portales News-Tribune that he expects the college's eligibility issues to be cleared up by mid-November. The issues were not the fault of students and the university reported them to the NCAA after problems were discovered. The problems range from lack of signatures on required forms to a lack of degree plans or needed credit-hours to play sports. The university has 11 affected sports. Only non-NCAA sanctioned rodeo teams are not affected. ENMU is reviewing all of its 408 current student-athlete files and notifying the NCAA of those where it discovers problems.

  • UNM’s Nare named MW Player of Week
    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Liz Nare has had a season of firsts so far, including her first career goal and first career assist.   Monday, Nare picked up her first Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week award as well. She was named for her play in UNM’s 1-0 win over New Mexico State University. Nare is the second Lobo in three weeks to earn a conference honor, as Jordan Craig was named MW Offensive Player of the Week after scoring three goals in wins over SMU and Texas. Originally from Lake Forest, Calif., Nare anchored the UNM defense in the 1-0 double-overtime victory over in-state rival NMSU. The Lobo defense allowed just three shots and none from inside 25 yards of the goal.   Nare drew an assist on the winning goal, as her long pass found Jordan Craig at the edge of the box, who settled the ball and passed to Elba Holguin for the winning shot. That game was Nare’s 50th consecutive start — she hasn’t missed a game in her career. Despite playing in the back, Nare is tied for third on the team in scoring with a goal and two assists. She held down the fort with teammate Lauren Irwin in front of Kelli Cornell as UNM saw a change in the defensive back line on Sunday due to an injury.
