The tough season continued for UTSA soccer on Sunday evening as they fell to Louisiana Tech 2-0 at the Techsters Soccer Complex. A goal in each half was enough for LA Tech to get the win that sees UTSA slipping away.
It was an horrific start to the night as Louisiana Tech opened the scoring just three minutes in to the match. The ball came in to Lisanne Kieygrewe who found Kathryn Sioan, allowing her to get a shot away which took a deflection, redirecting it in to the back of the net.
That didn’t stop Louisiana Tech from going on the attack as they continued to attack and create chances. But the UTSA defence was coming on strongly after that initial error and got stuck in, denying LA Tech clear chances.
UTSA had a good chance late in the half as Lauren Hodgson did well to get a shot away. But Louisiana Tech were determined to not concede as Kylee Soto made a great save to keep it 1-0 at half-time.
Louisiana Tech came out from the break determined to double their lead as they came out creating plenty of chances. But UTSA were let off the hook as the shooting was consistently off target.
But UTSA failed to take advantage of those missed opportunities as the LA Tech defense did well to keep UTSA’s chances down. But as long as the match was just a one goal deficit the Roadrunners seemed to have a chance.
In the 79th minute those hopes of a comeback were dashed as Lousiana Tech were able to make it two. Mylene Roy-Ouellet sent in a cross for Monica Gebler who was able to bury it and hand LA Tech the win.
There was one last chance for UTSA in the 82nd minute as Channing Machen was able to get a shot away. But that effort went wide of goal, across the face, keeping it 2-0 at the final whistle.
