Lobo soccer: UNM rolls as Mountain West title defense begins

New Mexico may not have needed a wakeup call Friday when it began defense of its Mountain West soccer championship, but Wyoming certainly provided an early one.

“We were all a little nervous,” said Molly Myers, who scored twice. “It was our first conference game and we were getting our nerves out.
