Lobos win Mountain West soccer title on dramatic goal in OT

All season, New Mexico soccer coach Heather Dyche has spoken about the resiliency of her Lobos squad.

Saturday the team proved just how prophetic she is, winning the Mountain West tournament championship 2-1 over host and sixth-seeded Boise State (11-8-4) in overtime after allowing the equalizing goal with 11 minutes left in regulation. The win earns the No. 1 Lobos (14-4-2) a second straight NCAA appearance. They learn their tournament draw Monday.

“I would certainly appreciate it if we didn’t do it. It would make my life a lot easier,” Dyche told conference broadcast crew following the game.
