PUEBLO, Colo. (September 17, 2014) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo women's soccer team battled the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls to a 0-0 draw Wednesday, in the opener of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference portion of the schedule for both teams.
CSU-Pueblo, (2-1-1, 0-0-1 RMAC) in the midst of a four-game homestand, went on the attack right from the start, collecting the first shot of the game just one minute into play.
Despite a 10-7 shot advantage for Highlands after the first half, the ThunderWolves defense continued to hold their ground as they faced numerous shots from the opposition. Highlands would finish the game having outshot the ThunderWolves 29-13.
"We had good energy," said head coach Paul Regrutto. "Most of their shots were from distance, we did have fewer shots but we had better opportunities."
Pack goalkeeper Jenn Rucker (Sr., Renton, Wash.) had another stellar performance, making eleven saves on 29 Cowgirl shots.
"We played hard but made the game difficult on ourselves by not doing the simple things," added Regrutto.
CSU-Pueblo will conclude the homestand Friday when they welcome No. 7 Colorado School of Mines, kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Art & Lorraine Gonzales Soccer Complex.
