COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs (3-5-3 / 2-4-3 RMAC) lost a close game against the Metro State Roadrunners (8-2-3 / 6-1-2 RMAC) Friday night dropping a 1-0 decision at Mountain Lion Stadium.

 The lone goal in the match came in the 66th minute when Andy Lopez capitalized off a pass from Michael Jordahl. The goal was Lopez's sixth of the season.

J.R. Calhoun generated the most shots with five while Mathew Cox, Blake Barnes and Austin Bell all took two shots of their own respectively.
