The Colorado State women’s soccer team lost to the Eastern Washington Eagles Sunday morning in Missoula, Montana, ending the weekend with two losses after falling to Montana on Friday.

The Eagles struck early, scoring in the seventh minute on a 2-on-1 fast break to go up 1-0, placing Colorado State in the familiar position of an early first-half deficit.

In the 20th minute, Eastern Washington’s Savannah Hoekstra found the back of the net for the Eagles again, putting the Rams down 2-0.

Janelle Stone made some threatening runs for CSU down the right side in the minutes before the half ended, but was unable to produce a goal before the buzzer sounded. Colorado State came into the second half with an early shot on goal in the 47th minute, but Eagles’ goalkeeper Nathalie Schwery came up with a save.

Neither team produced a dangerous opportunity after, until the 70th minute, when the Rams earned a corner kick.

It was booted out of the corner for a high, centered cross, but CSU couldn’t convert. The Rams ended the match without scoring, their sixth time being shut out this season. With the loss, the Rams move to a 2-6-0 record while Eastern Washington improves to 3-3-0.

Colorado State begins Mountain West conference play Friday with a home match against the UNLV Rebels. The teams will kick off on the Lagoon Field at 4 p.m.
