FORT COLLINS, Colo. -
Utah State soccer wrapped up its weekend of road competition Sunday, falling to Colorado State, 2-0.
With the loss, Utah State falls to 7-6-3 on the year with a 2-4-2 Mountain West record. Colorado State improves to 4-7-5 overall and 2-3-3 in league play with the win.
Utah State started the match with an early opportunity, taking a corner kick just three minutes in. The Aggies also had the first shot of the day, coming off the foot of freshman midfielder Ashley Cardozo. Later though, the Rams took control, taking four shots over the next 20 minutes before allowing another from the Aggie offense. Colorado State's first goal of the day came in the 35th minute on a header to the left side of the net. Utah State had the final shot of the half from senior forward Rachelle Parrish, but it was blocked by the Ram defense.
The second half proved more defensive, with both teams creating fewer offensive opportunities. The Aggies took a couple of early shots, but Colorado State added to its lead in the 63rd minute, finding the bottom right corner of the net. The teams traded shots back-and-forth for the remainder of the match, but Utah State was never able to capitalize.
Overall, Utah State and Colorado State both took 10 shots in the match, but the Rams had eight on goal, while the Aggies had just three. Senior goalkeeper Sara Cobb played the full match for the Aggies, tallying six saves.
The Aggies begin the final stretch of the 2017 regular season with a split schedule next weekend. Utah State will host UNLV on Friday, Oct. 20, at 3 p.m., and will then play at Nevada on Sunday, Oct. 22, at 1 p.m. (MT).
