ThunderWolves fall 2-1 versus Regis on Senior Night

PUEBLO, Colo. (Art and Lorraine Gonzalez Complex) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo women's soccer team suffered a 2-1 loss to visiting Regis University Friday, in its final home game of the season and last home match for seven seniors.  

Shots totaled 13-11 in favor of Regis (12-4-1, 10-3-0 RMAC), but shots on goal were even at 3-3 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference contest. The Rangers totaled nine corner kicks to the ThunderWolves' (6-8-2, 4-7-2 RMAC) one, while CSU-Pueblo totaled nine fouls to RU's seven.

The Pack conclude the regular season Sunday, Nov. 2 at University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The game is likely to decide who claims the sixth and final spot in the RMAC Tournament. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.

Regis started the scoring in the 12th minute of play and it remained 1-0 all the way to halftime, with shots on goal tied 1-1.

The ThunderWolves pressured early in the second half and found the equalizer at 48:36 to knot the contest 1-1. Sophomore Amanda Jorgensen (F, Wailuku, Hawaii) collected the ball after a clearing attempt by Regis following a corner kick and made a quick move into the 18-yard box. She then fed the ball across the six-yard box to a streaking senior Brittany Kliesen (F, Pueblo, Colo.) for a one-touch goal past the Ranger goalkeeper.

The tally was the third of the season for Kliesen, while it marked the team-leading fourth assist for Jorgensen.

The Rangers found what would be the game winner at 69:17 on a strong shot from just inside the 18 by Mickie Piechowski that beat senior goalkeeper Jenn Rucker (Renton, Wash.) to her right.

Before the game, seven Pack seniors were honored for their hard work and commitment to the program. Those seven student-athletes were: Melissa Chavez (Pueblo, Colo.), Kliesen, Anna Larmore (Everett, Wash.), Samantha Lewis (Tucson, Ariz.), Priscilla Llanos (Rowland Heights, Calif.), Kailyn Provin (Torrance, Calif.), and Rucker.
