Last week, the lady Rams gold soccer team won both of its games,

with the first win coming against CSU-Green. Eryn Gallager scored

the lone goal in the 1-0 victory.

The team also defeated Northern Colorado by a score of 3-0.

Senior forward Kerry Greer scored two goals while Kirsten Nelson

added the other. The women are now 14-2 on the year. The two loses

both came against in-state rival Colorado. With another matchup

this Friday, the women are looking for payback.

“We definitely owe them a loss,” Greer said. “We may have lost

twice to them, but we’re the better team. We need to come out ready

to play.

Hard-hitting Rams hockey

The CSU hockey team went 1-1-1 last weekend, bringing its

overall record to 5-1-1. The team tied Stoney Brooke in the first

game of the tournament. The Rams then beat Wagner 2-1 on a

game-winning goal with two minutes left in the third period. In the

last game, CSU lost a tough game to Davenport 11-2. The highlight

of the weekend came from aggressive, illegal play as the Rams

tallied 72 total penalty minutes in three games.

“It was sweet. Keith Steigerwald got in a fight and won. But we

are playing some awesome hockey in the first part of the year,”

said Jordan Stover, CSU hockey president.

Unfortunately, the Rams will be without defensive leader Chris

Hau, who was suspended for 30 days after fighting in the Davenport

game. The next game will be against Utah State 7:30 p.m. Friday at

Edora Pool Ice Center, 1801 Riverside Ave.

Ultimate wins seven at Plain Nasty

The CSU ultimate Frisbee team returned from Oklahoma after

playing in the Plain Nasty Ultimate Frisbee Tournament. CSU’s team

took two teams down in the tourney, one going 4-0 and the other

3-1. Combined, the players took home a sixth-place finish. With a

young bunch of guys, the year still looks to be a positive one for

the team.

“We have a lot rookies, but most have played before,” said Zach

Taylor, a veteran of three years. “We hope to take on nationals in

the spring.”

Rugby teams pick up wins

The men’s rugby team scorched New Mexico State 74-0 in its only

game of the weekend.

“We were up 43-0 at halftime and the referee called the game

with 12 minutes left,” said CSU coach Todd Gates.

The Rams will take on the Fort Collins men’s team noon on

Saturday at Boltz Junior High. Their next Eastern Rockies Rugby

Football Union league match will come on Oct. 31 at the Air Force

Academy.

The rugby women played at home Sunday, beating Wyoming 12-0.

Locks Alyssa Amason and Amanda Kehmeier scored one try each in the

victory. The team’s overall record is 3-3 and 1-1 in the Eastern

Rockies Rugby Football Union. This weekend the players will travel

to Albuquerque, N.M., for the High Dirt Tournament.
