PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 3, 2010) - The CSU-Pueblo women's soccer team was defeated 4-3 in overtime sunday afternoon by New Mexico Highlands.
The Pack got off to a blazing first half, controlling the game and scoring two early goals. Tamra Nee (Fr., Honolulu, HI.) scored her first goal of the season off a deflection in front of the net. Three minutes later Katie Thiebaut (Sr., Pueblo, Colo) would add her sixth goal of the year on a shot that beat goalkeeper Amanda Rose Johnson to the upper right corner.
The momentum would shift back to the Cowgirls in the second half after two goals evened the game up. The Pack would break the even tie and take the lead 3-2 when Thiebaut scored her second goal of the game off a accurately placed kick to the right corner that beat Johnson.
New Mexico Highlands would respond with a goal from Tierra Saban to tie the game and send it to overtime.
The game would only last one minute into the overtime as Krista Mashak took a pass from Britney Cottrell to seal the game in favor of the Cowgirls.
The loss drops the Pack to 3-7 overall and 1-5 in RMAC conference play.
The Pack will look to move forward past this game when they take to the pitch 7 p.m. Friday night in a home game against Adams State.
