Gotta have some patience

FLC calm, cool: ‘I never really felt like we wouldn’t win’
Kosta Kordistos, despite not registering a shot, proved to be a thorn in the side of Andres Ramirez and Colorado Mines, and No. 3 Fort Lewis upended the Orediggers 3-1 in Friday’s Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament semifinal at Dirks Field.
In his second game back after a knee injury sidelined him for nearly two months, Kosta Kordistos helped FLC advance to the RMAC Tournament final for the seventh consecutive season.
Johannes Sander and the Fort Lewis defense stiffened after allowing Colorado Mines to score first, keeping Baski Baker and the Orediggers at bay in a 3-1 RMAC Tournament semifinal victory Friday at Dirks Field.
Kosta Kordistos and Fort Lewis finished with a 14-11 advantage in shots over Andres Ramirez and Colorado Mines on Friday.
Jordan Alexander didn’t score here, but he and his fellow Skyhawks eventually forced Colorado Mines goalkeeper Manville Strand from the game because CSM head coach Frank Kohlenstein said he wanted to try Ben Thomson’s hot hand in net.
Thomas Hoang battled all afternoon with the Colorado Mines defense, firing three shots and scoring the eventual game-winning goal in the 62nd minute Friday.
Joey Madigan started the parade of three unanswered goals for Fort Lewis, tying the game with Colorado Mines at 1 in the 58th minute en route to a 3-1 FLC win Friday.
Kosta Kordistos took the Dirks Field pitch for the first time since a partially torn ACL put him out of action against Colorado Mines on Sept. 11.

Metro State survives shot-infested semifinal

Friday’s first Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament semifinal at Dirks Field bore a striking resemblance to target practice.
A combined 20 of 43 shots were on frame, but only one found the back of the net, and it came off the head of the Roadrunners’ Brenden Hughes to give No. 3 seed Metro State a 1-0 win over second-seeded Regis.
Hughes broke the deadlock in the 61st minute by getting his head to a cross from Marc Herschberger, directing the ball past Rangers goalkeeper Ben Sabados.
Shalier Thomas did the rest for Metro State, stopping all 10 Regis shots, many in the late stages of the game.
Metro (14-5-1) will meet top-seed and host FLC in the RMAC final at 1 p.m. Sunday at Dirks Field.
