Lobos Knock Off No. 16 Hoyas 3-1

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The 22nd-ranked New Mexico Lobos men's soccer team beat No. 16 Georgetown 3-1 on Friday night at the Lobo Soccer Complex to set up a rematch Sunday with the No. 18 Portland Pilots.

Lobos Levi Ross and Lance Rozeboom scored in a two-minute span of the second half, turning a 1-0 lead into a 3-0 rout in the nightcap of a TLC Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Invitational doubleheader.

The Hoyas' Seth C'deBaca, a Sandia Prep graduate, picked up a red card on Rozeboom's long-distance shot, leaving Georgetown a man short.

The Pilots eliminated the Lobos from the NCAA Touranament last year, a 2-1 overtime win at UNM. Portland and Denver played to a 3-3 double-overtime draw earlier Friday.

The Lobos dominated Georgetown on the stats sheet, outshooting the Hoyas 17-6. UNM had 10 corners to five for Georgetown.
