Pack finds goal vs. Metro, but falls in defeat
DENVER, Colo. - There was one bright spot for the ThunderWolves Friday in their road match against Metro State - they broke the nearly six-game long goal drought against the Roadrunners, but ended up on the short end, losing 7-1.
The Pack held strong for nearly 20 minutes before Metro drew first blood as Madison McQuilliams netted her fifth goal of the season.
However, the goal opened the flood gates, as the Roadrunners opened up a 3-0 lead at halftime, and was up 7-0 before the ThunderWolved netted a goal in the 67th minute as Marli Martin (Sr., West Jordan, Utah) got a good look in front of the Metro goal after starting keeper Becca Maloney was pulled.
The Pack's loss drops them to below .500 for the first time this season at 6-7-2 overall and 4-5-1 in RMAC play. The ThunderWolves will look to re-establish their place in the RMAC standings Sunday when they travel to Regis to take on the Rangers.
