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

Gold 0-3.

“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

17-10. The Rams then lost their final game against CU on Sunday

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

penalty kick to win the game.

“We did great for the amount of new people that are on the

team,” said senior Alyssa Amason. “The team needs some more

practice in rucking.”

The men’s team finished the tournament with a 1-2 record as

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.
