SAN JOSE, Calif. – Colorado State applied significant pressure to try and force overtime vs. San José State at Spartan Stadium, but the Rams weren’t able to find the back of the net, falling 1-0 Sunday afternoon.
The Spartans close out Mountain West action with a 2-6-1 record (3-13-1 overall), while the Rams finish their inaugural conference slate at 1-9-0 (2-13-2 overall).
SJSU’s Alexis Venegas buried her shot behind keeper Maggie Sherman in the 54th minute of play from inside the penalty box. Sherman faced 12 shots by the Spartans and had six saves on the day.
Hoping to create some momentum as the clock was winding down, CSU pushed everyone into the offensive zone in the final 8 minutes, including Megan Speed, who took over as keeper for the first time in a Rams’ uniform. The squad generated good chances, and had their best opportunity on a shot from Sasha Pchenitchnikova from just outside the box after maintaining possession on a cleared corner kick.
“Scoring goals has been an issue all season,” commented Head Coach Bill Hempen. “It’s not for lack of trying, but we lacked that instinctive personality to finish the opportunities we did create.”
San José State nearly muzzled CSU’s pressure with 3 minutes remaining on a shot from midfield that went just wide to left of the goal.
Colorado State will play its final contest of the season Friday at Northern Colorado (9-5-4). Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. MT.
