LAS VEGAS, Nev. - In a hard-fought match on the road against the UNLV Rebels (7-6-2, 2-3-0 MW), the Colorado State Rams (2-9-2, 1-5-0 MW) were defeated 1-0.

Colorado State was seeking its second win of the week, and looked to defend in the early stages of the match.

While the Rebels applied pressure at the beginning of the match and looked to score an early goal, the Rams stayed composed on defense. Colorado State contained the UNLV attackers and limited the Rebels to very few scoring opportunities.

In the first half, UNLV registered 11 shots and four on goal, but none of them tested junior goalkeeper Maggie Sherman too much. The Rams, by comparison, had three shots and one shot on goal in the first half as the two teams went into halftime tied at 0-0.

The second half began much like the first half had started; the Rebels attacked, while the Rams defended vigorously.

In the 70th minute however, UNLV finally broke through and capitalized on a scoring chance. Freshman forward Dakota Blazak scored her first career goal when she found the back of the net on a play that was set up on a corner kick.

For the match, Sherman tied a career high with nine saves.

Colorado State returns home for a pair of conference matches next week. The Rams will host Utah State on Friday, and will take on Boise State on Sunday. The Utah State match is slated to begin at 3 p.m. MT.
