Men's Soccer: Pack ties RMAC foe in Denver

By  | 

DENVER, Colo. The Colorado State University-Pueblo men's soccer saw its match with Metro State end in a scoreless tie Sunday.
Following the defensive bout, which saw the Roadrunners take 39 shots, 13 coming on goal, and the ThunderWolves take 15 shots, four coming on goal, the Pack are now 1-6-1 (0-3-1 RMAC).
"The biggest thing is not to put one person out there, but to say we defended well as a team," head coach Roy Stanley said. "I think our whole team deserves mention for the defensive effort. I don't know if it was just one guy, but as a defensive unit, we did much better today."
Although the result was one of the better outcomes for the ThunderWolves men's soccer unit this season, they were shut out for the second straight game, and have not scored since the 89th minute against Colorado School of Mines on Sept. 22.
"I think we're getting better, but I still say there were times where we weren't moving enough, we weren't active enough, and we still have more to show," Stanley said.
In the 71st minute, Roadrunner Michael Jordahl received a red card, giving the Pack a one man advantage until the 85th minute when Pack midfielder/defender Ashton Carlson (So. Aurora, Colo.) was given a red card.
"The red card for Ashton I think was really unfortunate, I think it was a yellow card," Stanley said. "It was a hard tackle, it was a little late but it wasn't nasty, it wasn't anything that really deserves further action."
Next up, the Pack will take on the Colorado School of Mines at the Rawlings Complex on Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.
