St. Mary's tops Mountain Lions
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs put an end to one unfortunate trend Sunday but was unable to end its losing streak, which reached seven matches with a 2-1 neutral-site loss to St. Maryâ€TMs at Wichita Falls, Texas.
After St. Maryâ€TMs took the lead on a James Cooper goal in the 23rd minute, the Mountain Lions answered exactly three minutes later when sophomore James McMonigle scored on a Juan Nolasco through pass. It was only the second time, and the first in the past seven matches, the CU-Colorado Springs had scored when trailing by fewer than two goals.
It was McMonigleâ€TMs first career goal. CU-Colorado Springs (1-8) has scored seven goals this season, each by a different player.
St. Maryâ€TMs (5-5) scored the game winner in the 43rd minute on a Tony Presenza header.
CU-Colorado Springs managed only five shots in the second half against a packed-in Rattler defense, none of which was on goal. In fact, McMonigleâ€TMs goal was the only Mountain Lions shot on goal, as St. Maryâ€TMs goalkeeper Steven Michael did not record a save.
CU-Colorado Springs goalkeeper James Bjorklund was kept busy, making nine saves and facing 26 shots overall.
