The CSU-Pueblo Mens soccer team hosted the No. 16 Colorado Mines Orediggers on Friday, losing 4-3, the first of a weekend doubleheader.
Fresh off a big conference win at Mesa State on the road last Sunday the Pack headed into today's game ready to play. "We were ready since Monday afternoon," said head coach Roy Stanley. Although a quick start from the Orediggers who took an early 3-0 lead just 17 minutes into the game, quickly quieted the Pack, only momentarily. Seven minutes after the Orediggers third goal, the Pack scored a goal on a penalty kick by Eric Andersen (Sr., Phoenix, Ariz.) who later collected another goal in the 87th minute on yet another pk kick, goals number 7 and 8 on the season. Robert Kinsey (So., Denver, Colo.) also scored when he received the ball on a pass from Brenden Hughes (Fr., Fort Collins, Colo.) kicking it right past the diving goalkeeper.
The Pack had multiple opportunities staying in Oredigger territory for alot of the game, outshooting Mines 15-9.
"Our guys continue to work hard offensively and our the opportunity is there, Stanley said, we showed alot of patience but the little mistakes and not playing a full 90-minute game is what hurt us."
The T-Wolves will take one day off then will be right back on Sunday when they play host to UCCS at Rawlings Complex, game time scheduled for 1 pm.
