Lady Techsters Fall 3-1 To Utah State
The Louisiana Tech soccer team fell 3-1 to Western Athletic Conference foe Utah State on Sunday afternoon at Chuck and Gloria Bell Soccer Field to remain winless in the Beehive State.

Coming away with points will be a tall order though for LA Tech as they have never beaten Utah State in the seven years they have been conference opponents. Last season, the Lady Techsters fell in Logan by a score of 3-1 at the hands of Heather Cairns' squad.

To get the programs' first ever victory against the WAC power, the team will need to rely heavily on freshman midfielder Brittany Beddow, who has emerged as the points leader with 16 and has both goals to her credit in the past two losses.

On defense, freshman goalkeeper Corina Brown and the backline which has been so dominate will have to reorganize and regroup after giving up multiple goals in the two losses. Utah State has a trio of scorers who have double digit points on the year in Mari Miyashiro, Jennifer Flynn and Jade Tarver.

Regardless of the outcome, LA Tech will find itself playing in the first round on Nov. 1 at the Chuck and Gloria Bell Soccer Field in only their second WAC Tournament qualification ever and can finish anywhere from a No. 3 seed to a No. 5 seed.
