[NEW MEXICO-BYU WOMEN] Almost a year after their last meeting made national headlines for all the wrong reasons, New Mexico and BYU faced off again on Saturday night with both teams ranked in the Soccer America Women's Top 25 and the Mountain West lead at stake. The Lobos prevailed, 1-0, in overtime to the delight of 2,029 fans on Senior Night. It was only the fourth win over BYU in New Mexico history.

(Click here for highlights.)

Liz Lambert's rough play -- including pulling a BYU player by the pony tail -- made national news and led to her suspension.

She was reinstated early in the 2010 season but has seen limited action in only five games and did not play on Saturday night in Albuquerque.

Fellow senior Kate Wyrick scored the game-winning goal for UNM in the 102nd minute off an assist from Jennifer Williams.

"It was pretty great," Wyrick said of the game. "There was so much at stake. BYU played an awesome game. I have to hand it to them. It was a back and fourth game. We both hit the posts a number of times. I think we just wanted it more.

New Mexico is now the only undefeated team in Mountain West competition at 4-0-0, one game ahead of BYU and San Diego State at 3-1-0.

"Whoever won this game went into first by themselves," Lobos coach Kit Vela said. "The girls were pretty pumped for it. No matter what [BYU] threw at us we kept our composure, kept our patience and waited our turn."

New Mexico improved to 10-1-3 and has a current unbeaten streak of seven games (6-0-1). It hits the road for its final three conference matchups before the MWC tournament in San Diego Nov. 4-7.
