By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M.

The university athletic director, Paul Krebs, announced the disciplinary action as the school forfeited the team's season-opening match against Texas Tech University, resulting in a $5,000 fine against UNM. Kit Vela, entering her 14th season as coach of women's soccer at the university, will be placed on suspension for one week without pay, starting on Monday, forcing her to miss one scrimmage but no official games.
