    BOULDER – The University of Colorado women’s soccer team earned a 1-1 draw against 19th-ranked Washington here on Friday afternoon in a tough Pac-12 Conference battle at Prentup Field.

    The Huskies converted on their only shot on goal in the first half to take the 1-0 lead in the 11th minute. Washington (9-2-2, 2-1-1 Pac-12) played a short corner kick and then sent the ball near the top of the ’18 before playing it back inside the box. Colorado goalkeeper Scout Watson stepped out to try and clear it, but Washington’s Shannon Simon was in position to head it to Kimberly Keever who put it in the back of the net for her fourth goal of the season.

    “Washington is a very good team, very good in the back,” said Colorado head coach Danny Sanchez. “We were disappointed to give up that goal early, we just didn’t defend that corner well. Having said that, I felt the rest of the first half we really put them under a lot of pressure. We played a lot of players, we kept the players fresh and the players were committed to playing both sides of the ball.”

    Congrats to the soccer team for the decent result, and it seemed like they had control of the ball most of the match.
