DU Boots Zags 2-1
DU rebounded from a tough tie to IUPUI this past Saturday by defeating non-conference Gonzaga at CIBER Field Monday evening 2-1. The Pioneers jumped out to a 1-0 lead at half. They were tied in the second half by the Bulldogs but responded with a penalty kick goal to take the lead and hold on until the 90th minute.
The Pioneers RPI dropped to #12 following their tie to IUPUI. Gonzaga's RPI was 26 heading into the contest.
The Pioneers return to Summit play Saturday, October 10th at Oral Roberts in Tulsa. The Pioneers are a sterling 9-0-2 and undefeated on the season. Oral Roberts (4-4-1) has an RPI of 127 so the Pioneers must get a road win Saturday to gain momentum in the Summit League and maintain their top 20 status.
