Over the weekend the UTSA women’s soccer team beat the Nicholls Colonels 1-0 after losing to the Southeastern Louisiana lady Lions. The weekend was also the last time the UTSA women’s soccer team will play a home match this season.

Even though the Roadrunners  seemed to have ball control for most of the match during the Oct. 22 match against the Lady Lions, the Lions managed to make the most of its chances and scored a goal at the 56 minute mark.

A stalemate prevented either team from scoring a goal and after 90 minutes of play, the Lady Lions walked off the field with the win.

Friday’s match was also UTSA’s first loss since the beginning of October.

The weekend was not without good news for the Roadrunners.  Sunday’s match progressed much like Friday’s match. No goals were scored until the second half, and the Roadrunners seemed to have dominant ball control. In this game the Roadrunners managed to score a goal.

At 49 minutes Kimberly Sellman shot the ball unassisted over the keeper’s head from the right side making, the score 1-0 in UTSA’s favor. For the remainder of the game the Roadrunners kept trying to get a second goal, but despite many opportunities, the game ended with the score 1-0 in favor of the Roadrunners.

Attendance for both games was high, especially Friday’s match which attracted 672 fans.

UTSA faces off against Sam Houston State and Stephen F. Austin in the Southland Conference play.
