DENVER, Colo. - The Colorado State women's soccer program officially opened up its 2013 campaign on Sunday afternoon as they played a hard-fought match against No. 10 Metro State, falling to the Roadrunners 2-0 in the exhibition.

"It was really cool to be out here," Head Coach Bill Hempen said. "They are listening and the recognize what it takes to succeed. You don't want to lose, but everyone got to play and it helped me evaluate where I can slip kids from one moment to the next."

The Rams started off strong, hitting the crossbar on a great goal-scoring opportunity just 12 minutes into the match, but couldn't capitalize as the two squads went into the half tied at 0-0.

Both teams continued to play to a scoreless draw until the 77th minute, when Karissa Price headed in a corner from Maggie Rojas. Less than 10 minutes later, Brandi Farley extended the lead for Metro State, heading in a cross from Abby Rolph to secure the victory for the Roadrunners.

Goalkeeper Elena Eidson led the way for the Rams with a strong showing and five saves in the first half.

Sunday's match was the Rams' lone tune-up before beginning the regular season in Lubbock, Texas on Aug. 23 vs. Lubbock Christian University.
