DENVER, Colo.: It was a cold and chilly day on the Regis match pitch for the Rangers. Despite the windy, brisk cold, Regis women's soccer outshot CSU-Pueblo 19-10, with 10 of the Rangers' shots being on goal.
Senior Ellen Augsburger had a brilliant day in the net, putting up an impressive eight saves while holding the opposition to no goals throughout 90:00 minutes.
RU had a few chances in the first half to no avail, so the team came into the second half with aggressive play.
Even with hard effort, the clock began winding down to just a few minutes left. At the 10 minute mark until the end of regulation, the game changed towards Regis' favor.
Shortly after entering the match, freshman Taylor Hendren broke away from the ThunderWolves with the ball in her possession. She then passed in to sophomoreSade Akindele who ripped a shot through the defensive line for her fourth goal of the season for a huge goal to put the Rangers up 1-0.
Then less than four minutes later, RU was fouled by Pueblo from within the penalty box and from the sidelines, head coach JB Belzer knew who he wanted to shoot the ball for his team.
Senior defender Alison Cahill took the opportunity. She sent the ball top left of the goal to put the Rangers up 2-0 and score her first goal of the 2013 season.
Regis advances to 7-7-2 overall and 5-6-2 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference after the big victory this afternoon.
The Rangers will return to the Regis Match Pitch on Sunday, November 3 at 1:00 p.m. to take on New Mexico Highlands University for their last RMAC regular season matchup.
