COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A tough three game schedule lies ahead this week for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team (8-4, 5-4 RMAC) and all it kicks off tonight in Lakewood, Colo. for a rematch with Colorado Christian (4-9, 1-8 RMAC).
The Mountain Lions will look to bounce back tonight after suffering a 2-0 loss in their most recent game to No. 12 Metro State (11-0-3, 9-0-1). Sunday's loss was only the second time this season that UCCS has been held scoreless.

In the last meeting between UCCS and CCU played on Sept. 25, the Mountain Lions came away with a 2-0 victory. Agnes Arnadottir earned the game winning goal off a corner kick assisted by Kia Jeffords. Michaela Mansfield also scored her first collegiate goal in the match.
