FLC women fall 1-0 to Colorado Mesa

Skyhawks playing at Dirks again on Sunday

The visiting Colorado Mesa University Mavericks found a goal in the 73rd minute to claim a 1-0 win over the Fort Lewis College Skyhawks women's soccer team on Friday afternoon.

Fort Lewis held a 10-8 edge in shots for the match, including a 5-3 shots-on-goal advantage. Sophomore Julia Johnson and senior Katie Smith each tallied two shots for the match. Five Skyhawks chipped in shots on goal. Sophomore Katlyn Rosenbaum played all 90 minutes between the pipes and picked up two saves.

Mesa, however, prevailed to improve to 8-2-0 overall and 5-1-0 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.

“It’s obvious that this is a talented team, and I thought we created a couple really good chances,” said FLC head coach Damian Clarke. “Realistically, it’s clear that this conference is tough to play in when a team that's 3-6-1 on paper has a team receiving votes in the national poll on their heels for periods of time. Mesa does a great job with their mentality, and I also think that the way my players are competing considering the lack of result is noteworthy.“

Fort Lewis (3-6-1, 1-4-1 RMAC) remains home for a Sunday slate with Westminster College (4-2-3, 1-2-2 RMAC). Game time is set for noon at Dirks Field.

“I’m excited for what this program is building. We have a really talented group of soccer players on this field, and we keep getting better every outing. We've been building throughout the season, and I'm excited to see it all come together,” said Clarke.
