LAS VEGAS, N.M.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Michael Messina Field.

CSU-Pueblo will remain on the road over the weekend with a match against No. 16 ranked Colorado School of Mines Friday, before wrapping up the weekend Sunday versus Colorado Christian in a nonconference tilt.

Goalkeeper Alison Darr (Jr., Placerville, Calif.) has played strong at the net thus far, making 26 saves good for a .765 save percentage. Darr has allowed eight goals and holds a 1.14 goal against average this season.

Her four shutouts places her second in the RMAC in that category.
