Regular season action in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference drew to a close on Sunday as teams made a final stab for playoff position.

Mines 1, CSU-Pueblo 0: The Colorado School of Mines women’s soccer team closed out the 2010 regular season with a 1-0 victory in RMAC women’s soccer action against CSU-Pueblo on Sunday afternoon at the CSM Soccer Stadium.
Anna Evans was on the attack early cutting back across the box and firing a shot far post in the sixth minute that skipped just wide. Evans created space hitting a shot from the top of the box in the eighth minute but CSU-Pueblo goalkeeper Katie Martinet came up with the diving save.
Mines broke through in the 62nd minute as Evans chased down a ball into the box, staying with the play and emerging on the other side of the CSU-Pueblo goalkeeper for her team-leading eighth goal of the season.
Briana Schulze collected her 26th career shutout moving her into sole possession of fourth-place on the RMAC women’s soccer all-time career shutout list. Schulze made three saves while the Mines defense held the ThunderWolves to just five total shots in the match on only one shot in the second half.
The Orediggers (10-5-3, 9-4-1 RMAC), the fourth-seed in the RMAC Tournament, will host the fifth-seed Metro State (12-4-2, 8-4-2 RMAC) at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the quarterfinal round. The winner will advance to the semifinal round to be played on Friday in Durango at host school Fort Lewis College.

Elsewhere in women’s soccer, Fort Lewis secured the RMAC title with a 1-0 win over Regis, Adams State beat Nebraska-Kearney 2-1, and Mesa State was facing UC-Colorado Springs.

Metro State 4, CSU-Pueblo 1: In men’s action, the Thunderwolves fell to the visiting Roadrunners in the regular season closer on Sunday.

The Roadrunners improved to 11-5-2 and 8-4-2 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, while the ThunderWolves fell to 7-10-1 and 6-7-2 in the RMAC.

Midfielder Steven Emory scored two more times, bringing his season total to 15 goals, as he stretched his school record streak of consecutive games with at least one point to nine games.  However, his school record streak of consecutive games with an assist ended at six games.

 Marc Herschberger opened the scoring with a goal in the 18th minute, assisted by Andrew Mejia.  Emory extended the lead to 2-0 in the 39th minute.

Walter Bertini got on the board unassisted in the 67th minute, scoring in the upper-left corner of the net.

CSU-Pueblo scored with the aid of an own goal as Jonathan Hall’s shot deflected off a Metro State defender’s back and into the net in the 69th minute.

Emory scored again in the 85th minute, off a cross from Scott Crawford.

Issa Bissau made two saves as Metro State outshot the Thunderwolves 29-8.

Metro State will host either CSU-Pueblo or Mesa State on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. in the opening round of the RMAC Tournament.
