After getting their first win of the season UTSA Soccer has been brought back to earth as they suffered a surprise 3-1 defeat to Lamar at Park West on Sunday
Lamar got off to a perfect start as Kimmy Albeno put away Taylor Mitchell's pass just six minutes in to the match, making things hard for the Roadrunners right at the start.
UTSA had two solid early chances to hit back from Happy Orere-Amadu but both of her efforts were hit over the bar as UTSA started to work back in to the match.
UTSA really took control after the 20th minute but too often their runs were poorly timed as the offside flag denied the Roadrunners consistently.
There was always an element of control to UTSA for the final half-hour of the first half and they really started to find their tempo but they just could not find the net.
The Roadrunners had chances late on in the half to restore parity with four chances falling their way but again they couldn't keep their shots down as Lamar went to the break 1-0 up.
UTSA started the second half brightly and in the 48th minute were back on level terms as Taylor Wingerden tapped home her own rebound after Bailey Fontenot made the save.
That lead to a period of dominance for UTSA with Kauwela Neal looking dangerous but unfortunately for the Roadrunners their finishing continued to be wayward as the shots were sent over the bar.
Lamar came back and countered well and just before the hour mark they had their second coal with Mitchell turning provider again as she set up Jennifer Yacuta to restore the Cardinals' lead.
The middle period of the half saw both teams really fight for possession in what became a midfield battle as neither side was really able to create clear chances.
There was one moment of magic left as Jannet Hernandez found Stefanie Miroballi in space, 30 yards out allowing Miroballi to launch a powerful strike that came down off the crossbar and in to seal a 3-1 win for Lamar.
