Soccer: Mountain Lions fall to No. 9 Metro State

By Matt Sandstead published October 19, 2007

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Mountain Lions fell 5-0 to the No. 9 Metro State Roadrunners Friday afternoon behind two goals by Steven Emory.

The Roadrunners opened the scoring in the 11th minute when Ola Sandquist dribbled into the Mountain Lion penalty box and laid the ball off for Shaun Elbalm who scored his third goal of the season.

In the 37th minute Ryan Brooks intercepted a Mountain Lion pass and fed the ball the to Emory who scored the first of his two goals on the day.

The Roadrunners (13-1-3, 8-0-3 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) wasted no time widening their lead in the second half when Phillip Owen capitalized on a free kick for his league-leading 16th goal of the season.

Emory notched his second goal of the game just one minute later off of a Sandquist cross. Jeromy Mereidth added another goal for the Roadrunners in the 67th minute.

Ryan Vickery made just one save as the Roadrunners recorded their sixth shutout in their past 11 matches. UCCS (3-13, 2-9 RMAC) managed just four shots overall against the stingy Metro defense.

The Mountain Lions play at Regis Sunday.
