[WASHINGTON-NEW MEXICO: Men] New Mexico ended top-ranked Washington's bid for its first trip to the final four with a 1-0 win on Saturday night. Despite  freezing temperatures and a frozen field, the Lobos got a goal by Ben McKendry to cap a first-half of total domination -- 10-1 edge in shots -- and defeat the Huskies, who finished the regular season first in the Soccer America Top 25.

For all their chances, the Lobos managed only one goal by McKendry from point-blank range after being set up by James Rogers and Oniel Fisher.

UW came out in the second half and had its chances, but the Lobos managed to absorb the pressure from Washington’s long throw-ins launched by flip-throw-in specialist Michael Harris.

The loss ended UW coach Jamie Clark's bid to join his father Bobby at the Men's College Cup in a rare father-son clash. Instead, New Mexico will face Notre Dame in Friday's semifinals.

Jamie Clark, who begun his coaching career as an assistant under UNM coach Jeremy Fishbein, took the blame for the loss, saying his team should have worn flats like UNM did.

Washington finished the season with a 16-2-4 record and is 41-11-9 in three seasons under Clark.

New Mexico advances to its second-ever College Cup. Its first trip came in 2005 when it fell in the final to Maryland, 1-0, in the final. The Terrapins will also be at PPL Park, where they will face ACC rival Virginia.
