PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 24, 2010) - The CSU-Pueblo women's soccer team fell 1-0 Friday night against the Regis Rangers. The game featured the second ranked team in the RMAC as well as the ThunderWolves who were coming off a defeat against rival UC-Colorado Springs.
The game was held scoreless until the 88th minute when Regis struck through with a unassisted goal by Jordan Miller. Miller found herself with an open look at goal and struck a shot past the outreached arms of keeper Savannah Thompson (Fr., Upland, Calif.).
Thompson was the star of the game for the ThunderWolves saving seven shots to keep the Rangers from ever taking a commanding lead. The defense was also solid blocking scoring attempts and putting pressure on Regis forwards.
The offense struggled to find any quality scoring chances throughout the game and constantly battled against the wind in the second half. The ThunderWolves ended the game with a total of seven shots.
Katie Thiebaut (Sr., Pueblo, Colo) offered the best scoring opportunity in the 62nd minute as she knifed through defenders only to have her shot saved by Regis keeper Ellen Augsburger.
With the loss the ThunderWolves dropped to 2-1 in RMAC play and 3-4 overall. The Pack have a chance to redeem themselves Sunday as they face Nebraska-Kearney at Rawlings Sports Complex. The game is scheduled for noon with the men's soccer team facing Colorado Christian in a doubleheader.
Sunday is also youth soccer day at Rawlings Sports Complex. Kids 12 and under are free to the game with a guest appearance by the Colorado Rapids mascot scheduled.
