With defensive shutouts and an offensive supremacy reflected in
the 9-0, 5-0 and 2-0 scores over Kansas State, Kansas and Northern
Colorado, respectively, the CSU women’s club soccer team made it to
the final round in the University of Colorado Tournament. After
three dominating games, the Rams lost the championship game to CU
“We played really well together, for how early on in the season
it is,” said senior forward Nellie Stisser. “We dominated most of
the tournament and we were just unlucky against CU.”
The men’s soccer team was also in action over the weekend with a
couple of games. The highlight was the annual Green-Gold game on
Friday night. It was an exciting game with the score remaining tied
going into the second half. The Gold team picked up the pace in the
second half, scoring twice and the game ended 2-0.
“We played really well,” said senior Steve Krecsbach. “It was a
great game to watch.”
Action continued Saturday, as the men’s squad played UNC on the
Intramural Field. They used home-field advantage to take the win
2-0. The team then traveled to Laramie, Wyo., on Sunday to play the
University of Wyoming. In a closer match than the previous two
games, the Rams slid by with a 1-0 victory.
The men and women’s rugby teams played in the Jackalope
Tournament in Wyoming over the weekend. The lady Rams finished
fourth out of eight teams, winning one game and losing two. Their
win came against Wyoming in a hard-fought match, coming out on top

10-7, after a controversial offsides call gave the Buffaloes a

well. They lost a 10-8 nail-biter to Wyoming on the game’s last
play. On the following day, Wyoming dropped out of the championship
game, bumping the Rams into the open slot. CSU faced a tough Utah
team and lost 31-7.
“Utah is one of the top four teams in the nation,” said rugby
club president Jacob Silverman. “CSU was beaten fairly, but scored
a try as a consolation.”
The baseball team continued its fall ball scrimmage schedule as
it played CU in a doubleheader on Sunday. The Rams won the first
game but lost the second.
“We were pretty rusty and it showed as we played poorly
overall,” said baseball club president David Schultz.
The baseball team will continue play this weekend against Otero
Junior College with a doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday.
