COLORADO SPRINGS – Click here to view the eighth Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men’s soccer release of the 2010 season. Included in Tuesday’s release are league Players of the Week, standings, a look at upcoming matches, news and notes from around the RMAC, a look at national and regional polls and recent results.
The Grizzlies earned their first RMAC points in the men’s soccer program’s short two-year history on Friday afternoon, recording Adams State’s first ever victory against Colorado Christian in Lakewood. Fittingly, it was a trio of players that were part of the program’s inaugural 2009 season who scored the three goals. Senior David Powers (Fairbanks, Alaska) and juniors Peter Freeman (Longmont, Colo.) and Joseph Jallow (Oldjeshwang, Gambia) each tallied a goal, while Jallow also had an assist in the victory.
Powers, Freeman and Jallow each moved atop, or near the top, of several singe-season and career scoring records in the process. Freeman’s goal was the fourth of his career, a new ASC record, and gave him an ASC career-record nine points. Powers goal, the which at the time gave Adams State a 2-0 advantage against the Cougars, was the first game-winner in Grizzly history, and his six shots in the game ties the program record. Jallow recorded his third assist of the season, an ASC season and career record, and he became just the second Grizzly ever to record three points in a game. Additionally, he became the first ASC men’s soccer player to ever record goals in back-to-back games.
Adams State was also in action Sunday against the top-ranked Orediggers of Colorado Mines, but were turned away 10-0.
Two of the Grizzlies’ remaining four games will be against nationally-ranked foes. This Friday they’ll be on the road at 10th-ranked Regis, against whom they fell 8-1 on Sunday, Oct. 10. On Sunday, they’ll be in action at UC-Colorado Springs, which topped ASC 9-0 on Oct. 8.
The Grizzlies will then see top-ranked Mines once again, this time at Murphy Field on Friday, Oct. 29 before heading to Durango to wrap-up the season against Fort Lewis, currently ranked third in the NCAA Central Region rankings.
Live stats will be available for Firday’s 3:30 p.m. match against Regis for fans who can’t make the trip to Denver.
