Boise State Soccer Falls 3-0 at San Jose State...
Broncos to play Louisiana Tech in WAC Tournament on Thursday.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (10/31/2010) - The Boise State Broncos fell 3-0 at San Jose State Sunday afternoon in the regular season finale for both teams. There was no magical comeback for the Broncos on Sunday like they did on Friday as Boise State fell behind early and could not rally. The Spartans took the lead on a Boise State own goal in the 23rd minute then added insurance goals in the 39th and 57th minutes to claim the win over the Broncos and a share of the Western Athletic Conference regular-season title. Both teams will advance to the WAC Tournament this coming week in Ruston, La.

San Jose State opened the scoring when Jessica Ingram fired a shot at the Boise State goal that was blocked by a defender, however the deflection sailed into the net for a Bronco own goal and a 1-0 Spartan lead in the 23rd minute. Sarah Fraser extended the Spartan advantage before halftime when she headed a cross into the Bronco goal in the 39th minute.

San Jose State put the match out of reach in the 57th minute when Katie Knopp scored her fourth goal of the season to make it 3-0 Spartans.

Boise State played better in the second period but was unable to close the gap. Kati Lucas put the first of four Boise State shots on goal in the match on target in the 52nd minute but was denied by Meghan Maiwald in the Spartan goal.

Katy Oehring took the second shot in the 79th minute followed by Cheyenne Jones and Ashley Walsh in the 87th minute. All four Boise State scoring opportunities were stopped by Maiwald for SJSU.

Megan Blanchard, a sophomore from Fresno, Calif., recorded her first career start for Boise State in goal making six saves on nine Spartan shots on goal. 

Next up for Boise State is the WAC Tournament quarterfinals in Ruston. La., on Thursday. The Broncos enter the tournament as the number five seed and will face the host and number four seeded Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters in the second contest of the day at approximately 2:00 p.m. (Mountain).
