SAN ANTONIO – Vic Bohdan (73’) scored her second goal of the season and Emily Parrott delivered four saves but UTEP (3-5-2, 2-2-1 C-USA) was upended at UTSA (3-6-1, 1-4 C-USA) Monday evening.
The Miners compiled six shots, including three on target. They also took a pair of corner kicks.
UTEP generated good pressure early on with a pair of shots in the first three minutes, both by Kam Fisher. UTSA then went on the attack with Parrott making a save by Lexi Bolton in the eighth minute. Two minutes later she came up with another stop, this time by Ellis Patterson, but the rebound was put away by Abby Kassal.
UTEP regrouped and tried to find the equalizer but shots from both Kristen Prevosto (11’) and Bohdan (12’) were saved by Jil Schneider. The Miners earned their first corner kick of the contest in the 40th minute, but it was cleared away by the Roadrunners with a header.
UTSA tacked on a second goal in the 47th minute with a goal on a penalty kick by Kassal. UTEP countered on the ensuing sequence to earn a corner kick, but Prevosto’s shot was off the mark. The Miners got on the board in the 73rd minute when Bohdan buried the chance.
UTEP pressured down the stretch but its best opportunity was wiped out by an offside call.
The Miners will wrap up the regular season when they play at Rice at 6 p.m. MT Thursday.
