Metro women’s soccer topped Colorado Mesa University 2-0 Oct. 31 at Auraria Field, and advances to the semifinals of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament.
Although the Roadrunners dominated the offense in the first half, with 13 shots, the ladies couldn’t find the back of the net. The Mavericks didn’t see much of the Roadrunners territory, and had a total of six shots in the half. The teams were scoreless going into halftime.
The lady Runners continued to control the pace in the second half, pressuring the Mavericks’ backline, and outshooting them 17-3.
The Roadrunners scored in the 67th minute, when forward Karisa Price got an open shot from the top of the box after maneuvering through multiple Maverick defenders down the right side of the field. It was the sophomore’s 15th goal of the season.
The second Runner goal was at 78:12 in the game, again from the top box. Sophomore forward Brandi Farley received the ball off a header from Price, who received a pass from senior forward Aubrey Fondy.
The Roadrunners are now 13-4-2 overall, and will play at No. 2 seed Colorado School of Mines Nov. 2 at noon in the RMAC semifinals.
