Steel & Silver Series Begins Tonight with Men's Soccer
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 2013-14 Steel & Silver Series begins tonight with men's soccer action when the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (2-4-2, 1-3-2 RMAC) hosts Colorado State-Pueblo (1-8-1, 0-5-1 RMAC) at Mountain Lion Stadium. The game will begin at 7 p.m.
The Mountain Lions will be looking to snap a three-game losing skid, with all three games against regionally-ranked opponents. The ThunderWolves will be looking for their first conference victory of the season.
UCCS has a four-game unbeaten streak against CSU-Pueblo dating back to the 2011 season, and lead the overall series 26-21-3. The game also represents the first game of the 2013-14 Steel & Silver Series competition between the two schools, which UCCS has claimed the last eight years.
Tonight will mark the halfway point of the RMAC season, and a win tonight would put the Mountain Lions within of striking distance of a spot in the conference tournament. UCCS is seventh in the current point standings and the three points from a win would move the Mountain Lions within a point of Fort Lewis and Adams State. The top six teams after the regular season advance to the postseason tournament in November.
James Roberts, one of the top offensive student-athletes in the RMAC this season, is on pace to finish third in UCCS season records for goals per game and fourth in points per game. On the defensive side, Brandon Costa is two shutouts away from tying for second in UCCS career records.
Fans can follow the game with live stats, or through pay-per-view video streaming through America One Sports. UCCS faculty, staff, students and alumni receive free admission for tonight's game, in addition to all home regular season UCCS games.
