Boise, Id. – A Boise State goal within the match’s opening five minutes was all it needed, as the San José State University women’s soccer team lost to the Broncos, 3-0, in a Mountain West match on Friday, October 11.
Boise State (8-4-2, 3-1 MW) got off to a quick start with a goal scored at the 4:29 mark. Gabby Garcia collected her own rebound for the 1-0 score.
