In a close match on Sunday, Aug. 28, the Wildcats lost in the final moments against the undefeated Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners.

The Roadrunners controlled the match early on. It only took until the seventh minute of game time for Kiran Singh to put the ball into the net from a corner kick. Taking a 1-0 lead, the Roadrunners kept the pressure on the Wildcats with a shot advantage of 7-2 after the half.

Even though the first half belonged to the Roadrunners, the Wildcats made the second half more competitive.

In the 58th minute of the game, redshirt junior midfielder Caylee Thornhill took the ball down the field, finding senior forward Kyler Goins for the game-tying goal, the first goal the Roadrunners allowed all season.

The half stayed balanced as the Roadrunners held a small shot advantage of 8-6. The match was leading to a tie until the 88th minute. Roadrunner Sasjah Dade was assisted on the game-winning goal from the first goal scorer of the game, Singh, securing a 2-1 victory over the Wildcats.

The Wildcats finish the first month of the season with a 1-2-1 record. They look to set themselves back to an even record on Thursday, Sept. 1 against 0-3 Weber State in Ogden, Utah in a battle between Wildcats.
