On a sunny Sunday afternoon, the Regis women’s soccer team took on the University of New Mexico Highlands, looking to increase their win streak to six straight games. Being ranked 21st in the country, their confidence and determination looked apparent throughout the whole match.
Within the first two minutes of the game, sophomore Tori Rinsem scored being assisted by junior Bethany Hohnstein and put the Rangers up 1-0 just minutes into the game. They ended the first half with their 1-0 lead and didn’t hesitate to capitalize on their lead in the second half. The Lady Rangers scored five goals in the second half, with all six goals being scored by six different players.
The game was nothing short of exciting, as they remain undefeated throughout the year and look to rise up in the national rankings. The next game for the women’s team will be on October 13th, as they host Black Hills State University and have their final four regular-season games on the road.
The men’s soccer team got back in the right direction with their 2-0 shutout win at South Dakota School of Mines. They are now looking at a record of 6-4 and a RMAC record of 4-4. The Rangers scored a goal in the first half of the game and closed the game with another goal with seven minutes left. Sawyer Lincoln and Ryan Ebert both assists as Oliver Haines and Will Eslinger were both able to put one in the back of the net. A very satisfying win for this men’s team as they return home on October 13th to face Fort Lewis College.
