LAKEWOOD, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 22, 2010) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo ThunderWolves were defeated 1-0 Friday by Colorado Christian University. Their third consecutive loss in a recent bad stretch for the Pack
It only took three minutes for freshmen Sally Larsen to score her first collegiate goal to put the Cougars up 1-0 over the ThunderWolves. A goal that would hold 87 minutes and become the eventual game-winner for Colorado Christian.
CSU-Pueblo's best chance to tie the game came 33 seconds after Larsen's goal when forward Katie Thiebaut (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) hit a shot that rang off of the post.
The game was evenly matched on the stat sheet with the Pack getting a slight advantage in shots on goal, 12-11.
The loss drops the Pack to 4-10-1 overall and 2-8-1 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play.
