Lions fall to Eastern New Mexico 1-0

PORTALES, N.M. — The Texas A&M University-Commerce Lions lost in the second game of road trip to fall to .500 in conference play after a 1-0 defeat to Eastern New Mexico. Sophomore defender Victoria Perez headed in the only goal off a free kick on the 37th minute. The Lions return home for the next five games on the schedule.

A&M-Commerce out shot the Zias and had two great chances right before the lone goal by Eastern when Brionna Minde had back-to-back shots turned away by Zia goaltender Xan Ortiz. A&M-Commerce also had chances at the end of the first half when Callie Annett and Eva Brutto both had shots saved by Ortiz.

The second half was a back and forth affair as neither the Lions nor the Zias could find the back of the goal. Minde and Wright had chances earlier in the first half but Minde’s header went over the crossbar and Wright was turned aside by Ortiz, recording six saves, as part of her shutout.

A&M-Commerce returns home for the next five games on the schedule, all of which are Lone Star Conference games. The Lions take on Angelo State on Sept. 21 at Lion Soccer Field with game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
