WICHITA, Kan. (September 9, 2017) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo men's soccer team lost its fourth straight game to begin the season, falling 4-1 Saturday at Newman University.

The home team jumped on the Pack early as they took quick possession on CSU-Pueblo's side of the field and connected on a shot by Newman's Jared Rangel in the fourth minute for an early 1-0 lead.

The Jets kept their foot on the gas pedal and caused several Pack miscues before taking control again on the Pack's side of the field and scoring again in the 23rd minute.

CSU-Pueblo's first quality shot came more than half way thru the period from Cameron Campbell (So., Laramie, Wyo.) causing Jets' goalkeeper Chase Bowman to do a double-take and make the save.

Newman added two more goals in a two minute span before the end of the half and took a 4-0 lead into intermission.

Through the first half Newman led 7-3 in shots.

In the second period CSU-Pueblo made a change at the goalkeeper and in stepped Erich Frey (R-Jr., Colorado Springs, Colo.) to face the Newman attack.

The teams continued the physical play on the field causing the referee to issue a flurry of caution yellow cards.

The Pack got on the board in the 55th minute on a score by Miles Sanchez (So., Bothell, Wash.), his first goal of the season.

The final thirty minutes saw the teams exchange shots at the goal but went virtually silent, ending the game 4-1.

Both teams ended with five corner kicks taken.
