Final Stats

SAN DIEGO - Boise State women's soccer saw its season come to an end Tuesday, with a 2-0 loss against San Diego State in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Championship. The third-seeded Aztecs scored once in each half to knock off the sixth-seeded Broncos.

Boise State pressured the Aztecs early and often, getting its first shot on goal just 39 seconds into the match. The Broncos outshot San Diego State 6-5 in the first half and put four of their six shots on target.

It was the Aztecs who got on the board, though. A San Diego State counter attack in the 14th minute resulted in a long run into the box. The Bronco back line cut off the run, but the referee whistled a foul and pointed to the spot to award a penalty kick.

Victoria Barba stepped up to take the penalty and went to the right post. Boise State goalkeeper Janelle Flores sprawled for the save, but Barba raced in to poke home the rebound.

Barba scored both of San Diego State's goals. She added a 36-yard free kick goal in the 66th minute.

Boise State freshman Raimee Sherle led the Bronco attack. Sherle took four shots and put two on frame.

The Broncos never let up, putting a shot on goal and earning a corner kick in the closing minutes but it was not to be. Boise State finishes the season 6-11-4. The Broncos earned a result in eight of their final 13 matches after starting the season 1-7-1.

San Diego State advances to face No. 2 seed San Jose State Thursday, in the semifinals.
