CNJ staff

COMMERCE, Texas — Erin de Wolfe scored two goals Friday and Texas A&M-Commerce handed struggling Eastern New Mexico University its fourth consecutive shutout with a 4-0 win in a Lone Star Conference women’s soccer match.

The Zias (10-7-1, 3-4-1 LSC), who have managed two scoreless ties during the drought, close the LSC and regular season on Sunday at Texas Woman’s and likely need a win to earn the first LSC postseason tournament berth in the three-year history of the program.

After Wolfe’s second goal made it 2-0 in the 56th minute, Jessica Pierce and Melissa Arnold added late goals for the Lions (10-5-2, 4-2-2), who ensured themselves a tournament berth with the victory.
