DENVER, Colo. (October 15, 2017) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo men's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision Sunday at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
The Pack was dealt a blow in the 37th minute when a red card was issued, causing the Pack to play a man down the remainder of the match.
MSU Denver scored in the opening minutes on a breakaway goal by the Roadrunners catching the Pack defense asleep.
In the first half CSU-Pueblo outshot MSUD 7-5 and 2-1 shots on goal. Lorenz Delaney (Sr., Phoenix, Ariz.) paced the ThunderWolves with two shots in the half.
In the second half the ThunderWolves kept the pressure on MSUD.

The home team added another goal two minutes later with the Pack still reeling from the previous score.
Miles Sanchez (So., Bothell, Wash.) and Delaney finished the match with two shots apiece.
