No. 5 Mines Stalls Rangers On Road, 3-1

DENVER – NSCAA No. 5 Colorado School of Mines women's soccer continued its in-conference dominance Wednesday afternoon, posting a workmanlike 3-1 win over defending RMAC regular season champion Regis at the Regis Match Pitch in Denver.

Senior Anna Evans initiated the scoring 5:51 after the opening whistle, directing a close right wing pass from freshman Anna Deleray straight-on to the low, left net for her team-leading seventh goal.

Sophomore RMAC Offensive Player of the Week Rachael Turner followed with her fourth of the season, bullying a path through a handful of defenders, before putting away the easy, point blank score to the right side at 31:32.

Deleray added her fourth 7:26 into the second 45:00, stinging a feed played back by Turner from the top of the 18-yard box.

Evans and Deleray led the women with two shots on goal apiece, while Turner, senior Jordan Hopper, sophomore Deirdre Johnson and freshman Caitlin Kaltenbaugh each had one.

Second-year keeper Jayln Yates (12-0-1) made four saves in 89:13 minutes, including two in the final 8:04, and just missed on a third with 54 seconds remaining; however was unable to slow the short momentum of the attempt by Catherine Anger.

The score marked the second time Regis (4-7-1, 2-6-1 RMAC) has snapped the Orediggers record-tying shutout streak at five matches this season. Prior to the last-minute goal, the women established the program record for consecutive scoreless minutes at 639:33.

Mines (12-0-1, 9-0 RMAC) has won nine straight and is unbeaten over its last 27 matches – tied for seventh-longest in Division II lore.

The Orediggers have trailed only 92 seconds in the previous 1822:38 minutes, giving up four scores in 19 matches and accruing three separate five-game shutout streaks.

The women return home for the second-to-last time of the regular season Friday, Oct. 18, hosting Fort Lewis (10-2, 6-2 RMAC) at 7 p.m. at CSM Soccer Stadium.
