Denver Loses to Virginia Tech, 11-5
Feiss led Pioneers with two points
March 7, 2018
After getting out to a promising start, the Pioneers were unable to keep up in scoring with the visiting Hokies, dropping their first game at home since April 10, 2016 against Southern California (9-6).
Denver got out to an early two-goal lead after Maddie Baum won the first two draw controls, which allowed Julia Feiss to score on a free-position attempt (29:06) and Caitlin Derry to put the ball past the goalie with a diving shot off of a Feiss pass (27:40). It was a team-high 10th goal for Feiss and the second for Derry.
The Hokies scored the next four goals to take a 4-2 lead after getting a goal back with 22:43 remaining in the half, and tying the game four minutes later (18:43). The visitors gained the 3-2 advantage at 12:46 in the half on a man-up opportunity, and later added another goal at 12:08.
A couple of unlucky breaks for the Pioneers made it 5-3 Virginia Tech going into the break, including a free-position shot by Derry with two seconds remaining in the half that hit the post.
