WSU soccer to play first indoor match in 18 seasons

Sep 12 2013 - 9:04pm


LARAMIE, Wyo. -- The Weber State women's soccer team looks to rebound from its first loss of the season when it clashes with Wyoming this afternoon.

Kickoff between the Wildcats (2-1-2) and Cowgirls (3-1-1) is set for 4 p.m. at Wyoming's indoor practice facility.

The match was moved indoors due to expected inclement weather in the Laramie area. It will be the first time in Weber State's 18-year history that it will play an official NCAA match indoors.

The Wildcats are 2-4-0 against the Cowgirls, but have dropped their last two meetings after winning the first four times in the series. The two teams met last season in Ogden, with Wyoming edging the Wildcats 1-0 at Wildcat Soccer Field.

The Cowgirls played one member of the Big Sky Conference already this year, taking on Montana in Missoula, Mont., and playing to a 0-0 draw. UW has won two straight overall, having defeated Nebraska-Omaha 2-1 in its last outing.

Weber State went 0-1-1 in two matches last weekend in Boise, Idaho, drawing Boise State 0-0, before falling to Washington State 1-0.

The Wildcats have allowed just three goals in five matches and currently have a .54 goals-against average. 

Offensively, Weber State has scored six goals, led by junior midfielder Mackenzie 'Tiger' Day who has scored twice. Sophomore forward Stacy Bair has three points (one goal, one assist), while three other Wildcats have scored once each.

Sophomore central midfielder Chansi Crompton has two assists.

Weber State will return home to take on in-state rival Utah at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Ute Field in Salt Lake City.
