    CU soccer wins third straight with 4-1 rout of Iowa

    From CUBuffs.com … Colorado continued its hot streak with its third straight win on Sunday, rolling past Iowa 4-1 at Prentup Field behind two first-half goals by Emily Bruder. The Buffaloes improved to 5-3-0 on the season, while Iowa had its six-match winning streak snapped as the Hawkeyes dropped to 6-2-0.

    It was Bruder’s breakout match as the senior transfer from North Carolina entered the match scoreless on the season, despite coming in with 18 shot attempts. She led UNC in goals scored in 2014.

    Notable Peformances: It was Bruder’s day was the led the team in goals and shots (6). The only other CU player with more than one shot attempt was Hogg, who had two as CU and Iowa finished the match an even 14-14 in shot attempts. Scout Watson, who came on for Jalen Tompkins in the second half at goalkeeper, allowed Iowa’s only goal, but also made four saves. Tompkins did not face a shot on goal in the first half.

    UP NEXT: CU will wrap up non-conference play with its final match of the Colorado Cup on Saturday when it hosts the University of Denver at noon at Prentup Field. A win on Saturday will clinch the fifth Colorado Cup championship in the competition’s sixth season.





    CU men’s golf finishes third at Air Force Invitational

    From CUBuffs.com … The University of Colorado men’s golf team flirted back-and-forth with the lead throughout the final round here Sunday of the 48th Annual Gene Miranda Air Force Falcon Invitational, but eventually finished third.

    The Buffaloes entered the day tied for the lead with Texas-El Paso, but saw Nevada-Las Vegas overtake them and tie the Miners for first-place honors; both UTEP and UNLV finished with 1-under par 863 team scores. Colorado turned in a 4-over par final round score of 292 to finish at 865, which was 1-over. Colorado State (876) and Wyoming (882) rounded out the top five in the 1-team field.

    … “It was frustrating to lose today,” said CU head coach Roy Edwards. “I was proud of how we competed, but disappointed in the results. We were right there the entire time, we just made a few uncharacteristic mistakes late. But I did see a lot of positives out there over the last two days.”

    Colorado’s five designated scorers did not have a birdie over the last four holes, closing with eight bogeys, two doubles and a triple; the four that counted toward the team score were a collective 9-over. UTEP and UNLV finished just a little bit better to keep the Buffs at an arms-length.

    … The Buffaloes will return to action in two weeks, traveling down Interstate 25 to Albuquerque to take part in the New Mexico Tucker Invitational on Sept. 23-24.
