The frustration mounted for the Texas State soccer team, in large part due to the shot disparity. Texas State owned the match with 34 shots to the New Mexico State’s eight.
It was not until the 77th minute that the Bobcats finally got on the scoreboard.
“In those situations we just have to stay composed and keep creating the chances,” said assistant coach Link Scoggins said.
Scoggins said the team addressed the frustrations at halftime but just had to keep pressuring and come up with the goal at the end of the shot attempts.
Rachel Grout, sophomore midfielder, scored her first goal of the season when Maddie Nichols, junior midfielder, volleyed the ball into the box to give the Bobcats the lead late in the second half.
