ThunderWolves drop one on the road to #13 Metro State
Metro State 4, CSU-Pueblo 1
DENVER, Colo. - The CSU-Pueblo Women's soccer team traveled the short two hour distance north to take on the #13 Metro State, in Denver; despite tying the score early in the first half, the T-Wolves couldn't stop the nationally ranked Roadrunners, losing 4-1.
An early goal scored by the Roadrunners was responded in the 20th minute when Morgan Purkey (Fr., Pueblo, Colo.) connected on a 25-yard direct kick to the top left corner of the goal, for her fourth on the year. That was all the offense the Pack would be allowed as Metro State's back defenders helped in keeping the shot count for the T-Wolves to a minimum, with a final count at 24-6.
Despite the loss, the Pack still remains in the thick of the RMAC tournament, presently in 7th and just one game out of the contention for the top six teams who play in the tournament.
The Pack will return back to Pueblo and host Fort Lewis on Friday, game time at 4 pm.
