FHSU women's soccer falls to Thunderwolves in Pueblo

Posted Sep 13, 2021 12:34 AM

PUEBLO, Colo. - FHSU women's soccer took its first loss of the season at CSU-Pueblo on Sunday by a final score of 1-0.

The Tiger offense made many attempts to get on the board but could not find the back of the net in either of their matches in Colorado this week, one resulting in a tie and one in a loss. The Tigers are now 2-1-1 overall and the ThunderWolves picked up their first win of the season, now 1-3.

The first half contained quite a few shots from both sides, as each team looked to score early. However, the first goal did not come until the second half as the ThunderWolves broke the stalemate in the 54th minute of action. The Tigers won the shot battle 12-9, but the ThunderWolves put six shots on target opposed to four from the Tigers. The FHSU defense gave up their first goal of the season, but keeper Deonna Wellbrock still managed five saves in the first loss of the season.

The Tigers look to find their way back to the win column on Friday (Sept. 17) as Emporia State comes to Hays for a non-conference match. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 pm at FHSU Soccer Stadium.
