Pugsley’s Performance Helping Stabilize UTEP Soccer

At 5-11 and with solid speed, redshirt sophomore Nicole Pugsley can do anything and everything on the pitch.

Her all-around skillset was on display in Thursday’s 2-0 shutout against LA Tech, which vaulted UTEP up to a tie for sixth place in the C-USA standings.

Playing in the midfield, Pugsley used her height off a corner kick to get the Miners on the board in the 30th minute with a powerful header. She added an assist on UTEP’s second goal, but her impact was also felt defensively.

She helped keep LA Tech, which entered the match second in the nation for goals, to just one shot on goal during the match. Pugsley won balls in the air while also showing off steady one-on-one defending to aid in slowing down the high-octane attack of the Lady Techsters. In all, it was a microcosm of what Pugsley brings to the table for a youth-laden Miner soccer team.

“I’d say my role is to be a leader on and off the field for the team,” Pugsley said. “Make sure that everyone is held accountable. It’s really nice getting a shutout, it feels good for the team.

Pugsley, who has started every match of her career, has been used both as a defender and midfielder in 2019. While she can thrive in both, she does have a preference of where to play.

“Probably midfield because I do like going in offensively,” Pugsley said. “As a center back you are not supposed to go forward at all.”

A biochemical science major, Pugsley aspires to get into the pharmacy field once her soccer career is over.

“Academics are very important to me because I do need to get into pharmacy school,” Pugsley said. “I need to keep my grades up.”

She has certainly done that, securing a C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal (min. 3.75 GPA) in back-to-back years.

The Texas native features a direct, no-nonsense approach to leadership, one that has her on track to one day be a captain of the squad.

“Consistency is really important in leadership and also not being a hypocrite,” Pugsley said. “If a leader is not doing as they say, then how are you going to trust that leader? And then being consistent, making sure I’m not ever doing what I’m not supposed to be doing.”

Pugsley is a workhouse who has logged the most minutes (1335) of any Miner field player on the year. She is also one of two Miners to start all 15 matches, and has been instrumental to the team’s turnaround in 2019 under first-year head coach Kathryn Balogun. UTEP (8-4-3, 3-2-1 C-USA) has already surpassed both its overall and conference win total from a year ago, and has a legitimate chance to qualify for the C-USA Tournament for the first time since 2016.

“Really buying in to what all the coaches brought in has been key,” Pugsley said. “I think we all did a really good job of that in the spring. It has brought all of our team closer in realizing we were ready for a change and to come in and do what Coach Kat brought us.”

Her UTEP career didn’t start out as planned, with an injury forcing her to take a redshirt in 2017. But even that proved to have a benefit.

“Watching the game from the sideline I learned a lot,” Pugsley said. “Being on the sideline is terrible but recovery is really important.”

UTEP is certainly fortunate to have her back on the pitch now, making plays all over like she did in Thursday’s crucial win against LA Tech. With the regular season winding down, Pugsley remains consistent in her approach and with her goals.

“For us to keep defining how UTEP soccer is played, both offensively and defensively,” Pugsley said. “And then, to ultimately get to the conference tournament.”

UTEP Soccer Cruises Past LA Tech 2-0

Behind goals from Nicole Pugsley (31′) and Tessa Carlin (46′) and smothering defense, UTEP rolled past LA Tech, 2-0, at University Field Thursday evening.

The Miners (8-4-3, 3-2-1 C-USA) dominated the contest against the nation’s second-leading offense, outshooting the Lady Techsters (11-3-2, 3-3-1 C-USA) by a margin of 28-6. That included a 9-1 advantage for shots on goal.

Vanessa Cabello, Lauren Crenshaw and Pugsley all registered assists for the Orange and Blue.

“I’m super happy for the girls,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “LA Tech gave a different look than we’ve had in the past, and the girls handled it really well. We’ll continue to get better. We had 28 shots, nine on goal, and only finished two so we have got to get better there.”

Emily Parrott was credited with her fifth shutout of the season after making one save while Carlotta Cartelli registered seven stops for LA Tech.

UTEP pressured initially, with a Jojo Ngongo shot (3′) creeping just wide of the frame. She then had another attempt (5′) that went wide right. Carlin’s opportunity (9′) was blocked and Cartelli tracked down the bouncing ball. Lauren Crenshaw tried a long-distance look (17′) that was handled by Cartelli for the first save in the game. Two minutes later it was a cross from Carlin that was headed (19′) wide by Ngongo.

Crenshaw lifted one over the defense that was gobbled up by Cartelli in the 21st minute. UTEP had a wild possession in the 30th minute, recording three shots in a span of 30 seconds. One by Pugsley clanked off the post while two others were blocked.

The Miners’ persistent pressure paid dividends just a minute later, off another corner kick. Cabello served it into the box where Pugsley used her 5-11 frame to elevate and hammer it home with a header.

UTEP nearly made it 2-0 when a rocket (40′) from Moe Sais clanked off the crossbar. The shot (40′) by Kam Fisher on the rebound was denied by Cartelli.

The Miners found that all-too important second goal of the game two minutes into the second half. Pugsley set up Crenshaw, who forced a diving save by Cartelli. Carlin was there to bury the rebound for her second goal of the campaign.

Carlin almost got another one in the 55th minute, with Cartelli looking like a hockey goaltender by making a kick save. Cartelli came up with a diving save to deny Jackie Miller in the 65th minute.

The Lady Techsters had their best opportunity of the contest in the 67th minute with a free kick from just outside the box. The wall did its job, though, blocking the shot before it could reach Parrott.

The freshman delivered a leaping save to rob Jaelyn Peeples in the 74th minute. That was as close as the Lady Techsters would get, with UTEP controlling play down the stretch to close out the contest in style.  ​

The Orange and Blue will look to make it a perfect weekend at home when they play host to Southern Miss at 12 p.m. MT Sunday. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids, and may be purchased by calling (915) 747-5234.

UTEP Soccer wraps up homestand with two games this week

The UTEP soccer team (7-4-3, 2-2-1 C-USA) will conclude a three-game homestand by squaring off against LA Tech (11-2-2, 3-2-1 C-USA) at 7 p.m. MT Thursday and Southern Miss (6-7, 1-4 C-USA) at 12 p.m. MT Sunday. 

“With five games left in the season, every game is important and every point is important,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “However we want our girls to take each game as an individual task. We have a big opportunity to walk away with some big home points, but the goal is to remain focused on the next task ahead which is LA Tech. They have had some really good results, and a couple of players have had a great year finding the back of the net.”

UTEP fought hard only to be upended at home, 1-0, by WKU on Oct. 10. The Miners had a 7-6 edge for shots on goal against the Lady Toppers but couldn’t find a way to beat Anne-Marie Ulliac.

Emily Parrott delivered five saves, with her lone blemish coming on a try from Ansley Cate (52′) seven minutes into the second half.

UTEP is in search of its first win against LA Tech, which has a 3-0-1 advantage in the series with the Miners. Thursday’s match-up will mark the first in El Paso between the programs, with three previously in Ruston, La., and another at the C-USA Championships

The Miners have dominated the series with Southern Miss, posting a 10-1-1 mark in 12 prior meetings. That includes a 6-0 advantage when playing in El Paso. Last year the programs battled to a 1-1 draw in Hattiesburg, Miss.

After allowing six goals in the loss at Middle Tennessee on Oct. 6, UTEP regrouped to limit WKU to one tally last time out on Oct. 10. The Miners have posted four shutouts on the season while holding five other opponents to one goal.

With five games remaining in the regular season, the Miners are in a three-way tie for seventh place in the C-USA standings. UTEP is in search of a top-eight showing, which would allow it to qualify for the C-USA Championships for the first time since 2016.

Five league games are left on UTEP’s schedule, but it has matched its win total for both overall (seven) and C-USA contests (two) from a year ago. The Miners are playing consistently well at both home (4-2-1) and on the road (3-2-2). UTEP sports a +2 goal differential (21-19) while also staking advantages for both shots (187-169) and shots on goal (94-66).

Quick Overview On Tech

LA Tech is 11-2-2 overall, including 3-2-1 in C-USA play. The Lady Techsters pace the league and are among the nation’s best for goals (46-second), assists (38-sixth) and points (130-third). They also have the most overall wins (11) in the league. Most recently they rallied from a two-goal deficit to forge a tie against Rice (10/13). Autumn Woodward (15 goals-first C-USA/second NCAA) paces the high-scoring attack, with Amber Posthauer (eight-fourth C-USA/47th NCAA) also having been a playmaker. Carlotta Cartelli has earned the bulk of playing time in net, registering 46 saves.

Quick Overview On Southern Miss

Southern Miss compiled a 5-3 mark in nonconference action, but it has struggled through five games (1-4) in C-USA play. It has taken care of business at home (4-1), but has been challenged on the road (2-6). Hailey Pohevitz is the top goal scorer (seven), but three others have four goals each. Pohevitz also shares the squad lead in assists (two). Kendall Mindnich has garnered most of the playing time in net, racking up 47 saves.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids, and may be bought by calling (915) 747-5234.

WKU slips past UTEP 1-0

The UTEP soccer team fought hard only to be upended at home, 1-0, by WKU Thursday evening.

The Miners (7-4-3, 2-2-1 C-USA) had a 7-6 edge for shots on goal against the Lady Toppers (7-4-1, 3-2-2 C-USA) but couldn’t find a way to beat Anne-Marie Ulliac. Emily Parrott delivered five saves, with her lone blemish coming on a try from Ansley Cate (52′) seven minutes into the second half.

UTEP controlled the opening 45 minutes, holding advantages in both shots (10-5) and shots on goal (6-1). The visitors survived the onslaught and snuck away with the win after Cate’s second-half tally.

“I thought the girls came out really strong,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “Unfortunately we didn’t come out as strong in the second half and we keep giving up set-piece goals. It didn’t happen tonight. We’re going to keep pushing and keep working because this is a good team.”

WKU generated a pair of shots in the first six minutes, both of which were blocked. The Miners then went searching for a goal with Lauren Crenshaw’s shot being saved by Ulliac in the ninth minute. Jackie Miller also let loose from distance, forcing Ulliac into a save in the 18th minute.

Danielle Carreon took a shot from inside the box that appeared destined for the back of the net but Ulliac came flying over for a diving save in the 20th minute. The GK also fought off a header from Emerson Kidd on the ensuing corner kick. Three minutes later it was a half-volley by Adrianna Jimmerson that was stopped. In the 29th minute Crenshaw unleashed a blast that required a diving stop by Ulliac.

WKU’s Aleksandra Kozovic rifled a shot that scooted along the ground, but Parrott tracked it well to make the save in the 33rd minute.  The Miners had a chance wiped out due to an offside call in the 40th minute and Kam Fisher’s shot was blocked by the defense in the 43rd minute.

The visitors got on the board in the second half off a scramble from a free kick. The ball was in the box where it was headed to Cate, who bested Parrott with a sneaky shot in the 52nd minute. Four minutes later UTEP was vying for the equalizer, but Tessa Carlin was turned away by Ulliac.

There was a wild sequence in the 60th minute, with WKU taking three shots in 20 seconds. Two of them clanked off the crossbar while another was blocked by the Miners’ defense. Carlin had a good look in the 69th minute, but it whistled high.

Parrott kept the Orange and Blue in striking distance by making two fantastic saves in the final 10 minutes of the match. She delivered a leaping stop to punch a shot by Ambere Barnett over the bar in the 82nd minute. She then made a diving stop on a try by Sydney Ernst in the 83rd minute.

UTEP tried to work the ball up the pitch in the waning minutes to secure the equalizer, but it didn’t come to fruition. The best chance came off a corner kick, with a Carreon shot ending up wide in the final minute of action.

The Miners will play host to LA Tech (7 p.m., Oct. 17) in the second of three straight home contests. The homestand will conclude against Southern Miss (12 p.m., Oct. 20).

Miners Fall At Middle Tennessee 6-1

MURFREESBORO, Tn. – The UTEP soccer team dug itself a big hole early and could never get on track in an eventual 6-1 loss at Middle Tennessee Sunday afternoon.

The Miners (7-3-3, 2-1-1 C-USA), who had yielded only 12 goals in 12 games, had their four-match unbeaten streak snapped in the process.

The Blue Raiders (5-6-1, 2-1-1 C-USA) received goals from Amber Hoot (8′), Hannah Tillett (10′), Claire Ramet (12′), Peyton DePriest (19′), Sam DeBien (22′) and DePriest (55′). Lilly Marquez (81′) scored with an acrobatic shot to bury a bouncing ball for the Miners’ tally and her first career goal.

It was a physical contest with 43 total fouls (UTEP-21, MT-22) and seven yellow cards (UTEP-four, MT-three).

“Today wasn’t the result we wanted, but I’m proud of the second-half effort,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “We have a lot to learn from this weekend’s trip. The character of our team won’t be defined by the times we fall, but instead how we rise.”

UTEP pressured early, with Jojo Ngongo using a back heel to spring Danielle Carreon. Her shot sailed just wide in the fourth minute. Middle Tennessee then got things going, coming alive for three goals in a span of four minutes.

It started with Hoot’s service off a corner kick having enough pace to deflect off a header clearance attempt and still end up in the back of the net in the eighth minute. MT was then awarded a penalty kick after a handball in the box, which Hannah Tillett converted in the 10th minute. Off a free kick Hoot got it to Ramet, who bested Emily Parrott in the 12th minute.

The Blue Raiders made it 4-0 after a giveaway in the Miners’ zone sent DePriest in alone. She finished the chance in the 19th minute. Three minutes later a cross by Maddi Falter was put away by DeBien.

Parrott turned away Casey Riemer in the 39th minute, and then UTEP went on the offensive. The Miners earned a corner kick, but they couldn’t capitalize.

Middle Tennessee scored its second goal on a penalty kick early into the second half, with DePriest finishing the chance. The Miners went down and earned a pair of corner kicks after conceding the tally, but they were unable to get anything out of them.

UTEP continued to play hard as the half wore on, eventually breaking through for a goal in the 81st minute. A ball was played to the middle of the box where an athletic finish by Marquez got the Miners on the board.

UTEP will look to start a new unbeaten streak when it plays host to WKU at 7 p.m. MT Thursday.

Miners pick up point on the road with scoreless draw At UAB

BIRMINGHAM, Al. – The UTEP soccer team earned a point after battling to a scoreless draw at UAB Thursday evening. The effort keeps the Miners (7-2-3, 2-0-1 C-USA) undefeated in league action while extending their overall unbeaten streak to four.

Emily Parrott was credited with three saves in recording her fourth shutout of the season. Johanna Popp made six stops for the Blazers (2-3-4, 0-1-1). UTEP enjoyed advantages in both shots (12-9) and shots on goal (6-3), while also securing five corner kicks.

UTEP generated an early opportunity but Jojo Ngongo’s shot was just wide in the sixth minute. Lauren Crenshaw intercepted a pass and fired high on net in the 12th minute. UAB had a set piece in the 21st minute which UTEP defended perfectly, preventing even a shot. UTEP countered where Ngongo’s shot was blocked in the box.

Tessa Carlin unleashed a heavy shot from outside the box to force a diving save by Popp in the 28th minute. The Miners were called offside in the scramble to track down the loose change. Parrott was called upon for the first time of the tilt in the 36th minute, scooping up a bouncing shot from Kassandra Daniel.

The home side earned a couple of corner kicks early in the second half, which UTEP defended well both times. The Miners then generated two shots in the span of 30 seconds, including one by Ngongo that was stopped by Popp in the 57th minute. Three minutes later, Parrott snuffed out a low shot from Sarah Buse.

The Miners earned their second corner kick of the contest in the 72nd minute, but they couldn’t capitalize. Three minutes later they secured another, with a header attempt sailing errant.

Ngongo played a good ball to a cutting Carlin who blasted a hard shot that Popp managed to save in the 80th minute. The Miners quickly regained possession with a free kick. Lauren Crenshaw curved it over the wall but Popp tracked it well for the save.

UTEP had chance in the final minute of regulation, but Danielle Carreon couldn’t quite elevate high enough for a header. Cayla Payne tracked the loose ball only to have a shot whistle wide, and the match went to overtime.

The Orange and Blue pressured first in OT by earning a corner kick in the 94th minute, but a foul in the box wiped out the chance. Payne’s shot was then stopped by Popp in the 97th minute.

Parrott made a leaping stop on a slow, but dangerous header in the 109th minute in double overtime. UTEP then raced up the pitch where Carlin got some room to work with inside the box. She fired a shot that Popp got her hands on before the ball trickled just wide of the frame for a corner kick. The Miners played it into the box but couldn’t finish.

UTEP will wrap up its three-game roadswing when it plays at Middle Tennessee at 12 p.m. MT Sunday. The match will be streamed live on ESPN+.

UTEP Soccer to wrap up roadswing with two games this week

The UTEP soccer team (7-2-2, 2-0 C-USA)) will cap off a three-game roadswing by playing at UAB (2-3-3, 0-1 C-USA) at 6 p.m. MT Thursday and at Middle Tennessee (4-6-1, 1-1-1 C-USA) at 12 p.m. MT Sunday.

“This weekend will be a tough one against two very good teams on the road,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “UAB had a tough loss against FAU. We know they want to earn points this weekend. Then we will head to Middle Tennessee. We are their only opponent this weekend. This weekend will require a lot of grit in order to be successful in earning points on the road.”

The Miners are riding a three-match winning streak, including a come-from-behind 3-2 victory at Marshall on Sept. 26 last time out.

UTEP got two goals in a span of less than a minute early in the second half to help fuel a come-from-behind 3-2 victory at Marshall on Sept. 26. The Miners overcame deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 to secure their first win against the Thundering Herd in Huntington, W. Va., in 11 years.

Parrott’s steady play key to UTEP Soccer’s strong start

Coming into the 2019 season, one of the biggest question marks surrounding the UTEP soccer team was who would replace recording-setting goalkeeper and four-year starter Alyssa Palacios.

Through 11 games played, freshman Emily Parrott has stepped up to provide stability at a critical position on the pitch.

With fellow classmate and GK Zoey Lopez sidelined with an injury since the second game of the year, the burden to perform has been placed squarely on Parrott’s shoulders. She has handled that pressure well, compiling a goals-against average of 1.11 and a .739 save percentage while starting 10 of 11 matches.

“I felt like I needed to step up and be there for my team,” Parrot said. “I know it’s a tough situation (with Lopez having been injured).”

The way she responded to the situation drew the attention of head coach Kathryn Balogun.

“She was put in a tough spot with our other GK going down with an injury early in the season,” Balogun said. “I think Emily has done a great job.  She stepped up and took the position and made it her own going into conference play. “

Her play has helped the Miners (7-2-2, 2-0 C-USA) already match both their overall and conference win totals from a year ago, and with every solid performance she gains a little more confidence.

“I expected it to be intense and to be fast paced,” Parrott said. “It’s been just that. Since the first game I’ve gotten a lot more comfortable, and it’s helped me to be more comfortable with the girls on the field and more confident in the games.”

Balogun has seen some improvement as well, and also understands the challenges that come with the position.

“Her fitness and confidence have been her greatest gains over the last two months,” Balogun said. “Goalkeeping is such a unique position in soccer. The physical demands exist but the mental IQ is so important.  You need to be good at any moment.”

At 2-0, UTEP is off to its best start in Conference USA play since 2011. Yet Parrott isn’t letting the early success change her perspective.

“Obviously I have a big picture in mind,” Parrott said. “I really think the team can do well and we have a lot of potential in conference. Every week it’s something new, and we just need to focus on each game.”

Parrott was credited with a career-best five saves in the 2-1 win at Grand Canyon (8/29/19) and then again in the 3-2 come-from-behind victory at Marshal (9/26/17). She also made four stops on three other occasions. She’s allowed a total of 12 goals in 11 games played, with two of those coming on penalty kicks. Parrott has also recorded a trio of shutouts.

“She is able to control games and has great game management as a freshman,” Balogun said. “She needs to continue to work on set pieces and her explosiveness when coming off her line.

The position is nothing new for Parrott, who has been a goalie for almost as long as she has played the sport.

“I’ve been playing soccer since I was four,” Parrott said. “I started playing goalie a couple of years after. There was a goalie coach at the field one day and my dad wanted me to go over. I pretty much liked it the first day. I like that it’s something different. It’s unpredictable, and there’s always something new every game.”

Time will tell for how the remainder of the season plays out, but her desire remains the same.

“I just want to win and for the team to do as well as it can,” Parrott said. “I love when my team does great defensively.”

UTEP storms back in second half For 3-2 win at Marshall

HUNTINGTON, W. Va. – UTEP got two goals in a span of less than a minute early in the second half to help fuel a come-from-behind 3-2 victory at Marshall Thursday evening.

The Miners (7-2-2, 2-0 C-USA) overcame deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 to secure their first win against the Thundering Herd (2-8, 0-2 C-USA) in Huntington, W. Va., in 11 years. Lauren Crenshaw (16′), an own goal (46′) and Jojo Ngongo (47′) provided enough firepower for UTEP to withstand Marshall goals by Marah Abu-Tayeh (8′) Julia Schukle (22′).

UTEP trailed at the half, 2-1, before pulling even 46 ticks into the second stanza on the own goal. Before MU could recover, Nicole Pugsley set up Ngongo’s eventual game-winning goal.

Freshman GK Emily Parrott registered a career-high tying five saves to help UTEP extend its winning streak to three. Furthermore the Orange and Blue are off to a 2-0 start in C-USA play for the first time since 2011.

“That’s two games in a row we’ve found the back of the net three times, and we needed all of them for tonight’s win,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “The staff continues to be pleased with our team’s response, but as we get further into conference we can’t count on teams allowing us to bounce back. We will get back to El Paso and put in work this weekend to prepare for another tough road weekend.”

UTEP pressured early on, with Chardonnae Harvey firing a shot that forced Marshall GK Lindsay Langley to make a kick save in the third minute. Two minutes later the Miners earned a corner kick but they couldn’t capitalize.

Marshall went on the offensive in the eighth minute. Rene Ross sent a perfect ball to the six-yard line where Abu-Tayeh finished the sequence.

In the 11th minute the Miners’ defense did well to block a point-blank chance by Metztli Gonzalez. UTEP launched a counter attack where Harvey was turned away by Langley. The Orange and Blue continued to attack, with Ngongo getting taken out in the box to set up a penalty kick in the 16th minute.

Crenshaw buried it into the lower, right corner for a clinical finish to tie the tilt at one.

The Thundering Herd regained the lead as Parrott punched away a shot toward the upper portion of the frame. Schukle tapped home the rebound before UTEP could clear in the 22nd minute.

UTEP had a chance to square the contest in the 27th minute but Tessa Carlin’s low, hard shot was denied on a diving save by Langley.

Parrott did well to come up with a save off a shot in the box by Gonzalez in the 37th minute. The Miners unleashed a counter attack only to have Adriana Lopez’s shot be pushed wide of the frame by Langley.

The Orange and Blue got the start they needed in the second half, with pressure in the box resulting in an own goal to tie the contest in the 46th minute. Less than a minute later the Miners pulled ahead, with Ngongo perfectly placing a shot into the lower left corner to give them the 3-2 advantage.

Ngongo looked to have her second goal of the half in the 55th minute but the play was nullified on an offside call. Moe Sais had another close call in the 63rd minute when her shot was blocked over the end line for a corner kick. Pugsley’s header was saved by Langley in the 71st minute.

Marshall secured a corner kick in the 77th minute, but the Orange and Blue defended it well. A long-distance try from Abu-Tayeh was well off the mark. UTEP closed the game with poise, not allowing a shot from that point on.

The Miners will return to action when they lock up at UAB on Oct. 3.

“Marshall will be our first of three straight conference away games,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “Travel in the conference is demanding, and it will be a new test for this young team. Marshall had a hard loss against a tough Florida Atlantic side in Florida. I am sure they will come out strong with their first conference home game against us. We were pleased with our first conference win but need to find a way to win big games on the road.”

The Miners have won back-to-back contests, including downing FIU, 3-1, in their C-USA opener on Sept. 22. The Thundering Herd have dropped consecutive contests, most recently falling at Florida Gulf Coast, 2-0, on Sept. 22.

UTEP scored a season-high three goals in a resounding 3-1 win against FIU in the Conference USA opener for both squads at University Field on Sept. 22.

Danielle Carreon (23′), Lauren Crenshaw (71′) and Jackie Miller (83′) provided the tallies for the Miners, who posted their fourth consecutive victory in El Paso. Jojo Ngongo (two), Adriana Lopez and Jackie Soto all were credited with assists.

UTEP won its C-USA opener for the third straight year and now stands 9-4-1 in the situation since joining the league after it bested FIU, 3-1, at University Field on Sept. 22.

It marked the first league lidlifter at home for the Miners since 2013.

UTEP has produced its best record through 10 games (6-2-2) in three years, with the Miners playing consistently well at both home (4-1-1) and on the road (2-1-1). UTEP sports a +7 goal differential (17-10) while also staking advantages for both shots (143-118) and shots on goal (69-43).

UTEP leads the series against Marshall, 6-4-1, with all of the match-ups coming since both schools joined Conference USA. The Miners won on their first trip to Huntington, W. Va., in 2008, but they are 0-3-1 in the four road meetings since.

Marshall returned 20 players from last year’s team (5-9-3, 3-6-1 C-USA). The Thundering Herd enter Thursday’s match-up at 2-7, 0-1 C-USA on the season, and in the midst of a two-game skid.

UTEP Soccer powers past FIU 3-1 in C-USA Opener

UTEP scored a season-high three goals in a resounding 3-1 win against FIU in the Conference USA opener for both squads at University Field Sunday.

“I’m really proud of how the girls started and then how they responded to the PK,”UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “There’s definitely some things we need to work at and continue to get better at but overall big picture we did well to finish strong at home. We found some grit at the end to get it and grind it out.”

Danielle Carreon (23′), Lauren Crenshaw (71′) and Jackie Miller (83′) provided the tallies for the Miners (6-2-2, 1-0 C-USA), who posted their fourth consecutive victory in El Paso. Adriana Lopez, Jojo Ngongo (two) and Jackie Soto all were credited with assists.

Yolanda Albalat (76′) put away a penalty kick to account for the only goal of the game for the Panthers (2-6, 0-1 C-USA).

Emily Parrott registered four saves in a solid day in net for the Miners.

UTEP secured a corner kick four minutes into the contest. It played it short to Soto, who crossed it into Kori Lewis. She one-timed a shot that whistled just over the frame. Cayla Payne put Christina Velazquez on alert in the 11th minute, but the shot was handled.

FIU’s Albalat had a good look in the 13th minute, but her shot deflected off the crossbar and was cleared.

UTEP got on the board in the 23rd minute when Ngongo and Lopez strung together passes to set up Carreon perfectly to beat the offside trap. She took one dribble and then buried the shot into the lower, right corner to put the Miners up, 1-0.

Crenshaw let one go from distance that was tracked and saved by Velazquez in the 35th minute.

Adrianna Jimmerson took a shot from the near post but she couldn’t sneak it past Velazquez in the 43rd minute.

A giveaway afforded Carreon a golden opportunity in the 52nd minute, but this time her shot was wide. Crenshaw elevated for a header went wide in the 60th minute. Carreon then forced a save in the 62nd minute.

Parrott preserved the Miners’ lead with a diving save to deny Ellen Halseth in the 66th minute. Two minutes later she showed off good hands by cleanly catching a hard, bouncing shot from distance.

UTEP was back on the offensive in the 71st minute, securing a penalty kick after a player was dragged down from behind in the box. Crenshaw stood over the ball and hammered it into the back of the net for her team-leading fourth goal of the year.

Four minutes later a handball in the box against UTEP led to Albalat’s goal on the PK. UTEP took the blow in stride, reinstating a two-goal cushion in the 84th minute. The Miners connected on back-to-back passes between Ngongo and Soto before finding Miller. She rifled the shot home into the back of the net for a much-needed insurance strike.

UTEP will play at Marshall at 5 p.m. MT on Thursday in the first of three straight road matches. The Miners will also lock up at UAB (6 p.m. MT, Oct. 3) and at Middle Tennessee (12 p.m. MT, Oct. 6) before having four of their final six league tilts at University Field.

“We came out really strong defensively in the second half,” UTEP head coach Kathryn Balogun said. “We didn’t even let them out of their half the first 15 minutes, and we found two goals. Hard work defensively leads to offensive opportunities, and if there’s one thing to take from tonight that would be it.”

Parrott corralled Priscilla Garcia’s long-distance blast in the 20th minute. UTEP went on the offensive four minutes later, with a thru ball sending Carlin in past the offside trap. She raced in alone only to have her shot deflect off the post. In the scramble the Orange and Blue earned a corner, and then another.

Kam Fisher had a partial breakaway but the defense tracked her down to set up a corner in the 38th minute. Nicole Pugsley’s header bested Martinez but was cleared off the line for a team save.

The loose change came back to her and this time her shot was denied by Martinez.

Jojo Ngongo vied to put the Miners on the board in the final minute of the opening frame but Martinez took the ball off her foot in a one vs. one situation.

The Orange and Blue pressured at the onset of the second stanza, with Lauren Crenshaw firing a shot that required Martinez to make a leaping save. UTEP had another chance in the 49th minute but Kidd’s try from a free kick was turned away.

UTEP broke through in the 52nd minute. Soto played the ball to Crenshaw, who crossed it to Carlin. She one-timed home the shot past Martinez from point-blank range. The Miners kept the pressure on after the goal, forcing two saves in 30 seconds on their next possession.

Carlin was in search of her second tally of the tilt in the 56th minute but Martinez deflected a shot wide with a dive.

A minute later the Miners did make it 2-0. The ball was played ahead by Carlin to Noel, who deftly touched a cross into the area. Soto tracked it down and tucked it away into the left corner of the net for her first goal of the season.

It nearly became 3-0 in the 71st minute with a blast off a free kick by Nicole Pugsley clanking off the crossbar. Three minutes later Martinez turned away Moe Sais from right in front of the goal.
