No. 8 New Mexico put a 2-0 shut out on the Denver Pioneers soccer team on Sunday.

The Denver Pioneers soccer team couldn't hold off the No. 8 New Mexico Lobos on Sunday, falling 2-0 at CIBER Field.

Denver and New Mexico traded shots throughout the first half, with Denver hitting a crossbar and New Mexico missing a chance from inside the six-yard box. Despite good opportunities and 13 shots between the teams, neither could capitalize on any chances and the teams were scoreless at halftime.

It took only five minutes for the Lobos to break the deadlock, as James Rogers earned a one-on-one with the keeper and slotted it home from seven yards out. They added another goal in the 70th minute as Rogers got the ball to Devon Sandoval inside the goal area, who put it home.

Denver managed to outshoot New Mexico following the second goal, but they couldn't get one past goalkeeper Victor Rodriguez.

Sunday's loss dropped the Pios to 6-4-3 on the season.

The Pioneers will continue their four-game homestand when they face off against the San Jose State Spartans on Friday. The two teams will kick off at 7:30 p.m. MT at CIBER Field.
