Sacramento State women’s soccer saw its two game winning streak snapped Sunday  3-2 against the University of Reno, Nevada.

The Hornets were led by a pair of sophomore forwards Alyssa Anderson and Josie Jogwe scoring one goal apiece.

It only took 24 minutes until the first goal was scored, Nevada’s Kori Disarufino put one past Hornets junior goalkeeper Kimberly Mata in the top right corner from 15 yards out.

Sac State would answer back just 12 minutes later when Anderson scored her fourth goal of the season to tie the game at 1-1.

However, Nevada would regain the lead with a late first half goal by the Wolfpack’s Chelsea Fricke by way of a header. The first half ended 2-1.

Nevada put the pressure on the defense in the first half by outshooting the Hornets 10-4 and having the advantage in corner kicks, 8-0.

In the 70th minute, Sac State scored the game tying goal when sophomore forward Josie Jogwe put the ball past the Nevada goalkeeper.

Unfortunately for the Hornets, the tie game did not last long as the Hornets gave up the eventual game winning goal just five minutes later to the Wolfpack.

Sac State was outplayed by Nevada on the stat sheet. The Hornets were outshot 18-11 as well as losing the advantage on corner kicks 10-6.

Sac State will play again Friday at 4 p.m. as the Hornets will take on the Fresno State Bulldogs at Hornet Field.
