UW Heads To New Mexico To Face Lobos
SEATTLE – The Huskies are set to face New Mexico in Albuquerque on Sunday morning at 11:00. UW is looking to bounce back after a tough 1-0 home loss to Portland on Thursday night.
In Thursday's contest, UW out-shot Portland 15-4 but couldn't find the back of the net. Claudia Longo earned her first career start while Summer Yates had six shots in total on the night as well as having two opportunities rattle off the post in the opening 45 minutes.
The Huskies have created many chances at goal in the first four games of the year (46 shot attempts), but look to turn more of those opportunities into goals.
• The Huskies have played the Lobos four times in program history, winning all four games. UW most recently defeated New Mexico 2-1 in September of 2019.
• UNM won the Mountain West Conference in spring of 2021, as well as reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament, a first in program history, beating Navy in penalty kicks in the first round.
• Entering the week, goalkeeper Olivia Sekany leads the Pac-12 conference in total saves (15) as well as saves per game (5.00).
• Through four games, 21 different players have earned playing time for Washington.
• The Dawgs return home the following Saturday to face Long Beach State at 4:00 p.m. at Husky Soccer Stadium.
• Summer Yates has been named to the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List. The Hermann Trophy is giving annually to the top individual collegiate soccer player in the country.
• Defender Kala McDaniel has played all 360 minutes this season, the only Husky to do so besides goalkeeper Olivia Sekany.
