Final Stats

FRESNO, Calif. - Boise State women’s soccer dropped a 4-1 decision Sunday, at Fresno State. The Bulldogs (2-8-1, 1-2-1 MW) scored twice in the first seven minutes and twice more in the early stages of the second half. Brooke Heidemann scored for the Broncos (3-7-3, 1-3-0 MW), the second-straight game Heidemann found the back of the net.

Freshman goalkeeper Tara Fisher made the first start of her career and was challenged right away. Fresno State was granted a penalty kick less than 90 seconds into the match. Fisher stepped up and made the save, the first time a Bronco keeper has saved a penalty kick since 2008. Opponents had converted the last 10 penalty attempts, including three this season.

Only moments later the Bulldogs pounced on a corner kick opportunity and put away their first goal in the sixth minute. It only took 19 seconds for the home team to score again and stake itself to a 2-0 lead in the seventh minute.

Heidemann got one back in the 27th minute with her second goal in as many games. KT Clayton took a corner kick from the left side and rolled the ball into the box just yards away from the post. Baylee Blaser approached the ball before allowing it to roll between her legs and on to Heidemann’s foot. The senior tucked a shot away from right in front of the net.

The 2-1 margin would stick going into halftime, but it did not take long for the Bulldogs to add to the lead. In the 50th minute Fresno State scored on a shot in the box.

Myra Delgadillo scored her second goal of the match in the 54th minute to put the game away.

Fisher would make eight saves in the match, but the Bulldogs unloaded 21 shots against her and put 12 on goal.

Boise State managed 15 shots and put eight on target, but could not find another goal after Heidemann’s first half strike. The Broncos earned seven corner kicks, but the Bulldogs turned away the last six.

The Broncos return home to host UNLV Friday at 4 p.m., at Boas Soccer Complex.
