Regis would hold the one-goal lead heading into halftime in search of one more to put the game away.
The ThunderWolves fought from behind to find the equalizer just after the start of the second half in the 49th minute of play. With the score back at a tie and neither team backing down, the Rangers would respond in the 70th minute of play.
Freshman forward Mickie Piechowski (Boise, Idaho) netted the go-ahead goal when she received a pass from Anger just outside the 18-yard box and progressed forward for a better angle slotting the game-winning goal past ThunderWolves goalkeeper Jenn Rucker. This goal was Piechowski's third goal of the season and her second game-winner.
The Rangers slightly edged out the shot advantage with 13 to the ThunderWolves 11. Regis earned an impressive nine corner kicks throughout the match to just one for CSU-Pueblo. Sophomore goalkeeper Kat Crump (Huntsville, Alabama) played all 90 minutes of action between the posts and made two saves, one in each half.
