SAN JOSE, Calif.—The San Jose State University men’s soccer team ended its winning streak at six games with a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to New Mexico as time expired in overtime Sunday afternoon at Spartan Stadium. With the win, the Lobos remain undefeated in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation action.

With time running out in overtime and the Lobos in possession of the ball deep in Spartan territory, New Mexico was awarded a corner kick and the clock was stopped at four seconds. On the ensuing kick, Ricky Francis was able to head the ball into the net off a deflection as time ran out to get the win.

The Spartans (11-7-0, 4-1-0 MPSF) dominated much of the game, holding the Lobos (15-2-0, 5-0-0 MPSF) to just one shot in the first half and nine in the game. The officials kept the action moving as much as possible, awarding no cautions, but calling 48 fouls.

New Mexico netminder Andrew Weber made four saves on 15 shots and was credited with the shutout win. The Spartans’ Eddie Dominguez made two saves on nine shots faced in the loss.

San Jose State will travel to Sacramento State to face the Hornets in the final match of the regular season next Sunday at 1:00 p.m. The Spartans will participate in the MPSF Championship beginning on Nov. 14. The tournament will be hosted by the defending MPSF champion New Mexico.
