Ups and downs for soccer — Vandals win one, lose one over weekend


The Idaho soccer team lots its second game of the weekend in a scoreless loss after shutting out Utah Valley on Friday.

The Cal State-Bakersfield Roadrunners shut out the Vandals 1-0 in 90 minutes of play on Sunday.

The Vandals were outplayed for the duration of the game against the Roadrunners allowing 14 shots of which 10 were on goal compared to the two shots that the Vandals were able to muster.

Vandal goalkeeper Marina Siegl played the entire match for the first time this season and was able to stop nine shots on goal.

“Marina has been fantastic for us,” Idaho coach Pete Showler said. “She did everything she could to keep us in the game.”

Showler said this match did not have the consistency he was looking for. In the first 26 minutes of the match, the Vandals allowed five shots.

“If the other team is hungrier and we are second best everywhere; we got the results we deserved,” Showler said. ” We are still looking for that elusive 90 minute complete performance.”

The only goal of the game came in the 43rd minute of the match off the head of Roadrunner Emily Noethe. Noethe scored that goal — her second goal of the season — from a corner kick.

Idaho’s WAC record fell to 3-2 putting them in fourth place in the WAC.

Idaho will continue their two-week away stretch as they play Grand Canyon State on Oct. 18 for the second time this season.

The last time the two teams met on the pitch was at Idaho’s Guy Wicks Field where the Vandals beat the Antelopes 3-1 for their first win of the season.
