CSU-Pueblo holds off Christian
The CSU-Pueblo Women's Soccer team braved through the cold temps on Sunday to defeat Colorado Christian 2-1 in the last home game for the Pack, as well as Senior Day.
The Pack struck early in just the fourth minute of the game when Felicia Gilbreath (Sr., Colo. Springs, Colo.) delivered a beautiful cross-pass to the feet of a waiting Candice Duffy (Sr., Idaho Falls, Idaho) who then shot passed a diving Cougar goalkeeper; her fourth of the year.
Battling through the blistering weather conditions, the Pack played one of their most defensive-dominated performances in out-shooting the Cougars 9-8.
In the second half, CSU-Pueblo played stellar soccer in keeping the Cougars from any type of comeback. Almost immediately at the start of the second half the Pack connected once again on another nice pass from Melissa Christensen (So., Kenosha, Wisc.) who served the ball 20-yards to a waiting and ready Cameron Giebel (So., Pueblo, Colo.), her first on the year.
CSU-Pueblo who improves to 5-11-2 (4-9-1 RMAC) will now head on the road to finish the season as they travel to Mesa State and Fort Lewis on Friday and Sunday next week.
