The Eastern New Mexico University Zia soccer team began its Lone Star Conference schedule with a 7-1 loss to the defending LSC champion West Texas A&M Lady Buffs Monday afternoon in Canyon, TX.
The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the Zias (3-4, 0-1 LSC South), while the Lady Buffs are undefeated (4-0, 1-0).
ENMU junior forward Samantha Lawrence tallied her sixth goal of the season mid-way through the first half. The Zias trailed 4-1 at halftime.
West Texas’ Danae Fontana scored twice as the Lady Buffs out-shot ENMU 23-10.
The Zias return home Friday for a non-conference contest against Northwestern Oklahoma State at 2 p.m.
