UH soccer loses to Fresno State

Advertiser Staff

Antonea Lugo scored a goal 27 seconds into the first overtime period to lift Fresno State to a 1-0 win over Hawaii Sunday at Bulldog Stadium in Fresno, Calif.

The win gave the Bulldogs their first Western Athletic Conference regular-season championship, while handing UH its fourth straight loss.

The Rainbow Wahine, who entered the match having qualified for the upcoming WAC Tournament, end their regular-season schedule with an 8-10-2 record overall and finished sixth in the WAC with a 2-5 mark.

The Bulldogs improved to 12-5-2, and 6-0-1. With its shutout of Hawaii, Fresno State also set a new conference record by not allowing a single goal in seven WAC matches this year.

The Rainbow Wahine next head for Reno, Nev., and the 2006 WAC Tournament, Nov. 2-5. The sixth-seed Rainbow Wahine will face third-seed and host Nevada, a team that defeated UH, 5-0, on Friday night. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. PST on Thursday, Nov. 2.
