Men, Women Win Via Shutout

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — One goal has been enough lately to win for the New Mexico men's soccer team. On Friday, they doubled that output, leading to a comfortable 2-0 victory over visiting Seattle University.

Goals by Josh Caffey and Travis Campbell helped the Lobos (7-4-2, 4-2) prevail in what otherwise was a hard-fought victory over the last-place team in the Pacific Division of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. The Lobos, who had won their previous two games 1-0 on late goals, outshot Seattle 12-9, and had a 7-4 edge in on-goal shots.

The regular-season home finale figures to be tougher for the Lobos. Pacific-leading Cal State-Bakersfield visits Sunday at 1 p.m.

UNM WOMEN 1, AIR FORCE 0 (2OT): In Colorado Springs, senior Rachel Fields' fifth goal of the season gave the Lobos their seventh straight victory.

Ranked 17th, UNM improved to 11-1-3 overall and remained unbeaten (5-0) in Mountain West Conference play.

New Mexico outshot Air Force 21-6 on the way to the Lobos' 11th shutout this season.

UNM plays again Sunday at Wyoming.
