Sometimes all it takes is one momentary lapse — or one beautifully played sequence — to make the difference between victory and defeat.
That’s pretty much all it took for New Mexico Highlands (11-4-4) to break through against Fort Lewis on Wednesday evening in the opening match of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s soccer tournament.
Highlands won 1-0 and will play the No. 1 seed, Colorado School of Mines, in a tourney semifinal 2 p.m. Friday in Golden, Colo. Mines is the No. 9 ranked team in NCAA Division II.
