Wyoming soccer falls on the road at San Diego State
SAN DIEGO, Calif., – The University of Wyoming soccer team rallied from behind once Sunday in its match at San Diego State. Unfortunately for the Cowgirls, they couldn’t construct a second rally.

Junior Alyssa Bedard was responsible for the game’s lone equalizing score. She scored in transition off a feed from sophomore Maddie Chance in the 59th minute that leveled the game at 1-1.
The score was Bedard’s third of the season and second in as many games, while the assist was Chance’s first of 2022. It marked Bedard’s eighth goal of her career.
