No. 22 Metro State costs to 4-0 victory over CU-Colorado Springs
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Brett Manning gave Metro State the only goal it would need when he headed in a corner kick by Dominic Duran in the 32nd minute, and the Roadrunners shut down the CU-Colorado Springs attack in a 4-0 victory Friday at 4-Diamonds Sports Complex.
Michael Ramirez broke the Mountain Lions' back in the 51st minute when he launched a 40-yarder that UCCS goalkeeper Mike Archuleta never saw. Archuleta, screened on the play, watched in disbelief as the ball went into the upper right corner of the goal.
Juan Jiminez and Daniel Gallardo, the RMAC's leading scorer with 13 goals and 27 points, added goals in the final 10 minutes after both teams had emptied their benches.
It was the final home game for UCCS seniors Joel Whalen, Fred Brown and Manuel Santana, who were honored in a pre-game ceremony.
