[14/14] Denver Overrun by [13/9] Colorado, 14-3
Conway tallies two goals for Pioneers
March 3, 2017
Colorado came out in a sprint, scoring four of the first five goals of the game by the midway mark of the opening half, Derry had the lone marker for the Crimson and Gold as she took a pass from Riley Eggeman near the top of the 12-meter arc and shimmied her way down to the net to sneak a shot past Soenksen to get the visitors on the board.
Meanwhile, the Buffs got two goals from Fusco and one each from Macleay and Keirnan to put Denver in the early hole.
CU kept a foot on the gas, getting six more goals in the frame, including Macleay's, Fusco's and Keirnan's hat tricks, for a 10-1 lead heading into the locker room.
The hosts got their 11th goal of the contest in the first minute of the second half to enforce a running clock and got their 12th to further dig Denver into the chasm by the 18:51 mark of the second half.
Conway got DU's second goal of the match by the 15-minute mark in an effort to slow Colorado's attack, but it did little to stem the tide as the Buffs wore down the Pioneers and took the decision at 14-3.
Denver will return to Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium next week, hosting Vermont on Sunday, March 12, with opening draw set for 3 p.m. MT.
