Pack drops one on the road at Fort Lewis
Fort Lewis 4, CSU-Pueblo 0
Durango, Colo. --- The CSU-Pueblo Men's soccer team traveled the long trip down to Durango to play against host Fort Lewis, before falling 4-0 to the always tough Skyhawks.
Early on in the game the Pack came out with "energy and with several opportunities to score" said Men's head coach Roy Stanley. Battling the cold temperatures on a brisk day in Durango, the T-Wolves kept battling with a few "minor mistakes" said Stanley.
With the opportunities there, the Pack was unable to execute any type of threat in the first half as Fort Lewis built a 3-0 lead heading to the half.
The second half the T-Wolves defense became more solid in holding the Skyhawks to just a lone goal, "Our guys showed class, the hustle the showed I believe kept us ready for our next game"
"With the shot count at what it was, that does not reflect how our guys played and with the opportunities that were there throughout the game, and the energy our guys showed, we know we will be ready for when they (Ft. Lewis) come to Pueblo," Stanley said.
With the loss the Pack drops to 5-5 (1-4 RMAC) and will continue on their Western slope trip north to take on the Mesa State Mavericks on Sunday, game time scheduled for 3 pm.
