Regis Defeats CSU Pueblo in Fall Home Opener

By Natalie Adrian

The Regis University Rangers defeated the CSU Pueblo ThunderWolves in their first fall lacrosse game of the season. Led by sophomore Ted Emery with four goals and supported by goalie Stuyvie Pierrepont's 12 saves, Regis finished the day with a 10-4 win.

Falling behind early in the first quarter 0-1, Regis stormed ahead of the ThunderWolves and never looked back, eventually leading at halftime by a score of 5-3. During the third quarter Emery scored two more goals and helped the Rangers pull ahead 9-4, before finalizing their win with one goal in the fourth quarter.

"I think our game went really well," says Emery, "a lot of new guys got playing time and I think that we have good chemistry on offense and the defense learned a lot of new plays. Overall, it was a good outcome and we came together as a team today."

Beginning the season facing many new challenges, Regis hopes to continue building upon their skills and working hard before they have their next game. For Coach Leach knows that "we have more areas to work on but I think it will help when we spread our players into different positions and help them find their rhythm."

With their first win under their belts, Regis can begin preparing for the remainder of their fall games, knowing that they have the skills and talent to take them into a successful 2011 season.

"We have a lot of fall ahead of us but we're definitely coming together as a team," Coach Leach says. Regis looks to add on another win during their next scheduled game, to be played on October 16 at Regis University.
