CSU is heading back to the drawing board after giving up a two-goal advantage to go down 6-2 to Panorama FC in Sunday's Bathurst District Football Ladies Premier League clash.
The students ensured the Goats would have an uphill battle ahead of them in the top-of-the-table contest after the Vixens found the back of the net twice in the opening half through Kelly Baker and Emily Thurlow.
Panorama turned their fortunes around with a pair of goals before the break then took the game away from the students with a devastating 30 minute window of domination.
Taleisha Bartlett scored a hat-trick during the big turnaround while Naomi Keith, Madison Gallegos and Kelsey Nancarrow all got on the score sheet.
Vixens coach Brady Evans said the ending of the opening half set the tone for the rest of the match.
"We conceded that first goal and then they got another with the very last kick of the half, and that momentum shift was what really did us in," he said.
"We conceded two quick goals after half-time and I think we unfortunately just left it all in the sheds."

There's a lot of the season left for CSU and their first loss will hardly be a cause for warning alarms to go off.
"Early in the second half they started finding space in the midfield and we're missing our strong combination there," Evans said.
"We were missing Annabel Meadley, who did her ankle in our game against Macquarie and is still looking at another six or so weeks out, but I thought we played really great football to get ourselves up two goals on a quality team like that."
Nancarrow's goal in the 50th minute, to give Panorama the lead for the first time, started a runaway period for the Goats.
Just four minutes later Bartlett got on the board then inside the last 15 minutes a Gallegos goal was followed up swiftly by Barlett's chip kick to seal the hat-trick.
Panorama coach Brent Huie never lost faith in his side during a tough first half.
"I was still confident and thought the girls could hit back. We ended up getting it back to 2-all then turned it around in the second half," he said.
"They had an injury early on to Lydia [Nancarrow] at the back and they didn't have Annabel Meadley either. They might not have been at full strength but we showed that we've got a strong squad.
"I'm so proud of the girls. They played really well."
Panorama have scored 41 goals in five matches at the cost of seven in their own net.
