DENVER, Colo. (September 30, 2018) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo men's soccer team suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of Regis University Friday at Regis Match Pitch.
The road trip had a bit of a rocky start for the ThunderWolves as problems with the bus cause for a delay of over an hour long and moved the kickoff to 4:30 p.m. at Regis Match Pitch.
Through the first fifteen minutes of play Regis held possession in Pack territory and the strong play by the Pack's backline allowed for minimal good looks by the home team. Regis was called off-sides one time in that period.
The ThunderWolves picked up the energy at midfield and created numerous turnovers against the Rangers. CSU-Pueblo got their first shot attempt in the 18' by Archie Jones (Fr., London, England).
Ten minutes later Regis earned the game's first corner kick but the attempt landed high above the crossbar.
Regis scored the first goal of the game in the 38' and take a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. The home team added a second score five minutes later and took a two-goal lead at intermission.
At the break Regis led 4-1 in two categories, shots and corner kicks.
In the second period the ThunderWolves best scoring chance came in the 52' on a shot by Santiago Tinta (Sr., Quito, Ecuador) and was followed by a second corner kick in the match.
Cesar Zamudio (Jr., Guayquil, Ecuador) fired his first shot at the Rangers goalkeeper in the 55' off a corner kick.
Minutes later the ThunderWolves kept the ball in Rangers territory and Brayden Ballman (So., Seattle, Wash.) hit one of his two shots in the match causing the Regis goalkeeper to make the save.
The Rangers extended the lead in the 85' to a commanding 3-0 lead with less than five minutes left in regulation.
Pack goalkeeper Tyler Harvey (Jr., Henderson, Nev.) made four saves and faced 13 shots in the game.
CSU-Pueblo (4-4-1, 1-3-1 RMAC) stays on the road and plays Sunday at UCCS. Kickoff is set for 1 PM at Mountain Lion Stadium.
