GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Despite outshooting the Mavericks, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team (6-3, 3-3 RMAC) dropped its third consecutive one goal loss in a 3-2 decision today to Colorado Mesa (5-5, 4-2 RMAC).
Today's match was the second highest scoring game for the Mountain Lions in 2013.

Colorado Mesa came out quick after halftime as CMU midfielder Tayler Franklin netted her fourth goal of the season just 1:33 seconds into the second half. Franklin scored her second of the game just 11 minutes later to give the Mavs the 2-1 lead.
Junior forward Hannah Levett put the Mountain Lions back in the game with less than 10 minutes remaining in regulation when she beat the Mavs goalkeeper for her fifth goal of the season. Freshman midfielder Jess Freeze earned an assist on the play.
The tie was short lived as CMU forward Ashley Wallace scored the game winning goal just 78 seconds later off a corner kick. Three more shot attempts weren't enough for the Mountain Lions as the game ended in the Mavs favor.
