Getting a jump on the RMAC

Emma Cannis and No. 14 Fort Lewis College got the jump on Mel Westhoff, Colorado School of Mines and the rest of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference with a 1-0 overtime victory over their archrivals Sunday at Dirks Field. FLC (4-0-1, 1-0-1 RMAC) will host two more this weekend: Adams State at 1 p.m. today and UC-Colorado Springs at 1 p.m. Sunday. Cannis assisted the Skyhawks’ golden goal against Colorado Mines. “I felt as though possession-wise and football-wise, that’s as good as we’ve ever been,” FLC head coach Damian Clarke said Sunday.
