Pink Week celebration to kickoff with soccer double-header at home

By  | 

PUEBLO, Colo. ( - October 16, 2013) - The CSU-Pueblo men's soccer team will kickoff the annual "Pink Week" celebration with a match-up against Fort Lewis College on Friday afternoon at the Rawlings Soccer Complex.
The match-up will be the second time this season the two teams have met. They recently played in Durango, with the SkyHawks winning by a score of 1-0 after a CSU-Pueblo own goal. Pack goalkeeper Sam Haseltine (So., St. Louis, Mo.) recorded seven saves in that game.
The ThunderWolves are currently 1-10-1 on the season and are ranked last in the RMAC weekly standings.
Fort Lewis is 6-4-1 and are third in the conference standings.
Although the ThunderWolves are coming off a recent loss at Colorado Christian, their last game showed the team's best offensive effort of the season. Headed into the last third of their schedule, the Pack are sure to bring their emerging offensive game to the field and have been playing well at the net.
Kickoff is at 4:30 pm and will be followed by the women's match-up against New Mexico Highlands at 7pm.
Women's soccer traveled to Las Vegas, N.M. for their last meet up against the Cowgirls. They suffered a 1-0 loss that game, despite a solid defensive effort.
The ThunderWolves have gone 2-1 over the last three games and have shown momentum offensively, while playing more physically on defense. They are currently 5-6 and in seventh place in the RMAC standings.
As part of the "Kickin' Cancer" weekend of events, fans are asked to dress in pink to show their support of breast cancer. Official "Pink Week" t-shirts are available for purchase in the CSU-Pueblo bookstore for $15.
Live stats will be available for both games.
