Regis Drops Game to Rivals at Metro State

DENVER, CO The Regis University, Rangers (4-7) fell to RMLC rival, the Metro State, Roadrunners (6-6), at Dicks Sporting Goods Park on Saturday by a score of 10-5.

After starting off strong, Regis led 3-1 after the first quarter but fell behind at halftime and never quite gained their momentum back. During the third and fourth quarters, Metro State came on strong due to significant injuries to key Regis players.

Regis was led by attackman Ted Emery's three goals and midfielder Jack Young's first two career MCLA goals to round-out the game. Despite having only scored five goals, this Regis team has never looked stronger, with noticeable improvements on both the offensive and defensive levels.

"We were back to 'Regis Ball' there for a while; competitive at every angle of the game." Coach Leach said. "Unfortunately, due to key injuries in the game, we were struck with some unforeseen matchups and our game plan had some significant changes, some just too difficult to adjust to in such a short amount of time."

Despite being left out of the post-season for the second year in a row, Regis looks to further improve their skills both on and off the field in the weeks and months to come.

"Our best moments in the Metro State game were reminders that we have come a long way, we have what it takes to compete, and with a little more depth, we will be in the postseason soon," says Coach Leach.

The Regis University Rangers will play their final game of the 2011 season this coming Saturday, April 30 at 1:00 p.m. versus the division leading University of Northern Colorado, Bears (6-5 overall, 3-0 in the RMLC) in Greeley.
