SAN JOSE, Calif. - Fresh off a 2-0 win over Colorado College and a narrow 3-2 loss in double overtime on the road against Air Force, San Jose State women's soccer is feeling good and ready to keep the ball rolling as they move into the second weekend of Mountain West action. The Spartans will host Wyoming and Colorado State on Friday and Sunday as part of doubleheaders with the men's soccer team. It is Breast Cancer Awareness Weekend out at the Spartan Soccer Complex. Fans who wear pink will receive free admission and all fans will receive a pink Spartan wristband in support of finding a cure for breast cancer.

First Touches

  • Freshman midfielder Taylor Phillips has already proven to be one of the top offensive threats on the Spartans' young roster with 10 games under her belt. Phillips has made eight starts and currently leads the team with six points (two goals, two assists).
  • A total of eight Spartans have found the back of the net through the team's first 10 games. Phillips is the lone player to net multiple goals. Five of those eight are newcomers - Phillips, Kayla Fortenberry, Carly Burns, Tiana Cello and Kiana Miyazato.
  • Wyoming is currently 5-4-1 and fifth in the MW Standings after a 1-1 opening weekend in league play. The Cowgirls fell to New Mexico in a 4-1 final in Albuquerque before taking down San Diego State 3-1 at home.
  • Wyoming is led by first year head coach Collen Corbin. The Cowgirls have seen nine different players notch a goal in 2021 with the trio of Jamie Tatum, Alyssa Bedard and Faith Joiner leading the way with three goals apiece. Tatum is the team's leading point scorer with 10 on the season.
  • The series between the Spartans and Cowgirls has been mostly even throughout the years, with SJSU owning the overall lead at 5-3-1, including a 3-2-0 record in San Jose. However, the Spartans are looking for their first win over Wyoming since a 3-1 final on Oct. 14, 2016.
  • Colorado State had a frustrating start to league play with a pair of 1-0 losses, both in Fort Collins, to San Diego State and New Mexico. The Rams are 1-4-2 overall.
  • Led by first-year head coach Keeley Hagen, the Rams have seen four players find the back of the net this season led by Kristen Noonan's three goals for a team-best six points.
  • SJSU has historically controlled the all-time series against Colorado State, however it was the Rams that took the last meeting in a 2-1 final in 2019. Prior to that the Spartans were a perfect 5-0 over the Rams and are 3-0 in San Jose.
