Sept. 13, Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods at Kansas City
The Roadrunners fell 3-1 in the match against the Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods Monarchs. All of the scoring in the match took place in the opening half. Maple Woods scored three times with the last goal coming at the 34-minute mark.
"We got off to the slowest start that we have had all season," said Head Coach Jaime Beltran. "They weren't themselves, and it took them too long to wake up. In the second half, Maple Woods got across the midfield line twice. We were all over them, but we just couldn't find the net. We dug ourselves too big a hole to get out of. I liked our response in the second half, but we have to play all 90 minutes."
Sophomore forward Aaron La Paz led with six shots and three shots on goal in the match. Freshman forward Lesia Thetsane added two shots and one shot on goal in the match. Freshman goalkeeper Landon Dove made three saves.
