The Ranger men's soccer program outscored the Mavericks of Colorado Mesa University today in the RMAC Conference match. The Rangers scored the 86th minute of play to secure the win after having 22 shots, 11 of which were on goal, on the day.
After a collision in the first half, freshman defender Jordan Spring was sent to the hospital with a gash in his head. He received six staples and returned to the field. With fifteen minutes left in the match, the Parker, Colo. native was cleared by the athletic trainer and returned to the game.
With 4:35 on the clock, midfielder Stephen Reed sent a free kick toward the Maverick posts. Spring, staples and all, went up for the attempt and sent a header into the back of the net for the game-winning goal.
