FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State Rams (1-6-2, 0-2-0 Mountain West) lost in the Border War to Wyoming (4-6-2, 1-0-0) 3-0 in front of 450 fans decked out in their orange gear at Fort Collins Soccer Complex Sunday.

The Cowgirls got on the board early with what turned out to be the game-winning goal from just inside the penalty box by Sammi Dunda in the 10th minute of play.

From there the Rams won the time of possession battle and saw an opportunity as the defense pushed forward on a shot from sophomore Megan Speed, but CSU was unable to find the back of the net.

Wyoming's Lucie McDowell then added a goal in the 69th minute. She currently ranks second in the Mountain West with six on the year.

Mollee Ramsay tallied the third and final goal 5 minutes later for the Cowgirls on a crafty move around CSU's Elena Eidson. McDowell picked up another point with an assist on the play.

Head Coach Bill Hempen commented on how Wyoming seemed to take advantage of CSU's errors. "Any mistake we made, we were punished for."

After Maggie Sherman got the start in goal for the Rams, CSU began the second half with Eidson as keeper, but after allowing two balls past her, Hempen decided Sherman would finish the match.

The Rams had their best scoring chance in the final minute of the match on an open look from Catherine Ruder, but Wyoming's Alex Boehm closed off the angle, stopping her shot.

Colorado State will travel to San Diego State (4-5-2, 2-0-0 MW) Friday, before returning to FCSC to host New Mexico (4-7-1, 2-0-0) in its first-annual Pink Out on Sunday.
