October 17, 2021 — The Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team dominated Nevada to the tune of a 6-1 victory this afternoon in Laramie. The win pushes Wyoming to 7-8-1 overall and 3-5-0 in Mountain West Conference play, while the loss drops the Wolf Pack to 3-10-2 overall and a 2-4-2 in league action.
“This team has been so close to a game like this the entire year,” head coach Colleen Corbin said. “The season is going to always have ebbs and flows, and you’re going to have ups and downs. The conversation we had with (the team) was about waking up on Sunday and being ready to win. I don’t care what you have to do, be ready to win.”
Six different Cowgirls found the back of the net. That collective attack led to the highest goal total in a single game for Wyoming since 2007. Cowgirls’ goals were scored by Nikayla Copenhaver, Eliza-Grace Smith, Savannah Warner, Sydney Miller, Hannah Hagen, and Liz Stutzman. The Cowgirls ended the game with a 19-8 shot advantage.
This upcoming week, Wyoming takes to the road, traveling to Boise State on Thursday before a Sunday match at Utah State.
Cowgirl Volleyball now on a four-match winning streak
Jackie McBride hit her milestone 1,000th career kill Saturday night as the Cowgirl Volleyball Team won its fourth-straight in a home straight-set sweep over New Mexico, 25-20, 25-23, and 26-24. McBride tallied 11 kills on the night.
The win upped the Cowgirls record to 12-8 on the season and 4-4 in the Mountain West. New Mexico falls to 5-3 in conference and 14-5 on the year.
“I think the biggest change I’ve seen from our team in the last four matches compared to the first four to begin conference play is confidence,” said Head Coach Chad Callihan post-match. “We made a lot of errors in those first four matches, and you saw a little of that both Thursday and tonight, but we’ve built some confidence so that we can still pull those types of things out. Overall we’re just playing a lot cleaner.”
This week, Wyoming will return to the road with a Thursday match at UNLV (14-5/5-3 in MW) and then at home against San Diego State (6-14, 3-5 in MW).
