    BOULDER - Colorado's soccer team won its ninth consecutive match as the Buffaloes took down Oregon State 3-0 on Sunday afternoon at Prentup Field. CU improved to 11-3 overall this season and 5-0 in the Pac-12, while OSU dropped to 5-7-2 and 0-5 in league play.

    It is the first 5-0 start to conference play in CU history, including the 16 seasons in the Big 12. The Buffs were 4-0 to start the 2003 season in the Big 12.

    WHAT HAPPENED: The Buffaloes were in control from the opening whistle, outshooting OSU 9-1 in the first half.

    Sarah Kinzner put the Buffs up 1-0 at 16:37, hitting a rocket into the upper-right corner of the net from 25 yard out on the left win. She had a throw-in to Danica Evans, who touched the ball back to Kinzner for the shot.

    Taylor Kornieck gave CU a 2-0 lead at 25:04, converting a wide-open shot from 25 yards out in the center of the field, finding the lower-left corner of the net. She was set up by Evans and Emily Bruder on the play.

    Evans got her third and fourth points of the match at 67:05, scoring off a corner kick. Stephanie Zuniga's corner to the far post was headed towards the goal by Alex Vidger and Evans deflected the ball in with her knee for a 3-0 lead.

    UP NEXT: CU will host Washington at 3 p.m. on Friday at Prentup Field.

    Not what was predicted, and most likely won't last, but:

    CU has not played a team that is in the top six in the standings and their next mach is Friday at home v Washington who is currently in the bottom half of the standings with only one win. Still, this is great as the Buffs need just one more win to guarantee a winning conference record and they are in excellent position to finish in the top five, which will give them a shot at an at-large NCAA tourney bid.

    After Washington CU travels to Stanford and Cal then completes the season at home with matches against UCLA, USC and Utah.

    CU had the better of the play and possession today in scoring their first two goals. Both cam from well played passes that found first Kinzner and the Kornieck in space outside the box. Although very different types of shots both were hit with just the right amount of placement and power. They were in soccer parlence, clinical.

    After the second goal OSU came alive and for most of the rest of the match had the bulk of possession and chances, But they only managed two shots on goal and many of their other shots were wildly off target.

    CU's final goal came off a corner when a bending ball from Stephanie Zuniga found the head of Alex Vidger who put it back across goal where Damica Evans finished on the goal line. It may have gone in anyway.

    In addition to scoring, Taylor Kornieck was very impressive. She was all over the pitch winning balls and making herself available to receive passes.
