PUEBLO, Colo.

Friday the Pack kickoff at 7:30 p.m., the second game of a doubleheader following the men's 5 p.m. kickoff. Sunday the women begin at noon and the men's game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

The ThunderWolves return to the pitch after a strong showing at home against No. 1 Western Washington Wednesday despite a 1-0 defeat.
