Pack suffer 3-0 defeat at No. 14 Mines

GOLDEN, Colo. (October 1, 2017) - The Colorado State University-Pueblo women's soccer team suffered its first loss of RMAC play falling 3-0 Sunday at No. 14 Colorado School of Mines.

The ThunderWolves allowed three first half goals and played most of the period on the defense. Mines' potent offense kept the Pack on their toes as they fired thirteen first half shots.

CSM scored the first goal in the 22nd minute, converting on one of seven corner kicks earned.

The home team tacked on the second and third scores in a two minute and 23 second span on misplayed balls by Pack goalkeeper Rylie Martin (So., Colorado Springs, Colo.) who allowed a chip-in goal and one to bounce over her reach into the net.

CSU-Pueblo's shots came from Jessica Westhoff (Sr., Centennial, Colo.) and Justine Martinez (So., Pueblo, Colo.).

Martin finished the match with six saves on nineteen shots by the Orediggers.

CSU-Pueblo (4-4-1, 3-1-1 RMAC) continues on the road next week for RMAC matches at Regis (Oct. 6) and MSU Denver (Oct. 8).
