ThunderWolves shutout at West Texas

CANYON, Tex. (September 11, 2016) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo men's soccer team wrapped up its first road trip of the season Sunday falling 3-0 at West Texas A&M University.

The ThunderWolves fell behind 3-0 before the 13th minute after a scurry of chances at the net by WT.

"In the first half of today's game we found out more about our team," said Pack head coach Roy Stanley. "The second half was a more realistic showing of where our guys are.

The Buffs outshot the Pack in the first half 13-5 and held a 2-1 corner kick advantage. Three WT players each netted goals.

CSU-Pueblo opened the second half more focused and played toe-to-toe against West Texas.

"I felt like we created the better opportunites in the second half," Stanley said. "We defended and attacked well and our attackers have the opportunities and confidence to score some goals."

The ThunderWolves were guided by Dycus Kelly (So., Laramie, Wyo.) and Connor Marth (Jr., Tulsa, Okla.) who each fired three shots in the game.

Chandler Syrett (Fr., Sandy, Utah) saw his first action at goalkeeper, making four saves in forty-five minutes. Erich Frey (Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) came on in the second half and made one save on seven shots.

"West Texas is a good team. They are going to be someone in the top ten in the region throughout the season."

CSU-Pueblo (2-2) returns home Friday to begin a five-game homestand and open Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play. The Pack welcomes Colorado Christian to the Art & Lorraine Gonzales Soccer Stadium for a 7 p.m. matchup under the lights.
