The Colorado Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s soccer teams had a flawless Friday as six teams took the pitch for nonconference matches and all six notched wins.

The day included overwhelming triumphs from Colorado School of Mines and Adams State College, and nailbiters for Metropolitan State College of Denver and Colorado Christian. All of them, however, ended with a mark in the win column.

Mines 5, Bemidji State 0: The Orediggers went on the road and dispatched the northern Minnesota side in convincing fashion.

The Orediggers, 3-0-0, got goals from Anna Evans, Megan Woodworth, Jelli Schira, Kendra Bulawa and an own goal from Bemidji. Penny Rodgers had two saves in keeping a clean sheet.

Mines, playing in Duluth, Minn., takes on Minnesota-Duluth on Sunday before returning home.

Grizzlies 5, Texas-Permian Basin 1: Adams State feasted on the Texas visitors, grabbing a 4-0 lead in little more than 15 minutes en route to a convincing victory.

Autumn Boyer and a hat trick from Jessica Hellweg put the Grizzlies (2-0-0) up early. Allie Mercado got the fifth in the second half after Permian Basin had pulled back a lone tally.

Cougars 2, Fort Hays State 1: Megan Gilchrist and Ciara Meredith fired Colorado Christian to a lead that solid goalkeeping managed to hold up after allowing a second half strike.

Thunderwolves 2, Angelo State 0: Savannah Thompson provided 10 saves and Morgan Purkey scored once in each half as CSU-Pueblo improved to 2-1-0 on the season.

Rangers 3, Winona State 1: Jordan Miller was all the offense the Rangers would need as her hat trick fueled a win for No. 25-ranked Regis University.

Opening the home campaign, the Rangers (3-0-0) built a three-goal lead on the strength of Miller’s scoring. The 12th-ranked Warriors managed a scored in the 83rd minute, but it was too little, too late to make it a game on the Regis Match Pitch.

Roadrunners 2, Minnesota State-Mankato 1: Metro State was outdueled and nearly gave away points at home before Becca Medina provided some last-minute heroics.

With less than three minutes remaining and less than a minute after the Minnesota visitors had pulled even, Medina launched a low, left-footed shot into the back of the net.

Aubrey Fondy’s goal in the 31st minute had put the Roadrunners (3-0-0) up early, and provided the chance for a late winner. Danielle Quigley pulled in seven saves for the Roadrunners, who were outshot 16-6.
