PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 24, 2010) - It was a fitting end for ten seniors playing their final home game of their collegiate careers Sunday. The Colorado State Univeristy-Pueblo ThunderWolves were able to hold off the Mavericks to win 1-0, sending the ten players off on a high note.
Katie Thiebaut (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) scored the only goal for the Pack after an apparent misplay by Mavericks goalkeeper Alicia Kahler. A fitting end for the senior who joined the team only this year but managed to lead the team in goals with 11.
Goalkeeper Katie Martinet (Sr., Pueblo, Colo.) earned the win for the Pack, saving two shots in limited work. Jessica Stumpf (Sr., Baltimore, Md.) and Savannah Thompson (Fr., Upland, Calif.) combined with Martinet to preserve the win for the ThunderWolves.
Sarah Deziel (Jr., Eau Claire, Wisc.), who was lost year in the preseason due to a knee injury, was also honored on the day as she got the opportunity to start in limited time.
The ThunderWolves will finish out the regular season on the road as they travel to play New Mexico Highlands Friday at 3:00 p.m. and Colorado School of Mines Sunday at noon.
With the win the ThunderWolves improve to 5-10-1 overall and 3-8-1 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play.
