    LOS ANGELES - The University of Colorado soccer team suffered a 2-1 loss on Friday evening at UCLA at Drake Stadium.

    The Buffs played a strong first half defensively as their back line kept the Bruins from putting a shot on goal.
    The loss drops Colorado to 7-7-2 overall and 1-5-1 in the Pac-12, while UCLA improves to 7-7-1 and 3-3-1 in the Pac-12.

    “Don’t be fooled by their record,” Sanchez said of UCLA. “They’re a quality opponent. I thought we played well tonight against a good team. We scored a goal and created a lot of other opportunities.”

    CU will return to action on Sunday at No. 24 USC. That match will kick off at noon MT, 11 a.m. PT, and will be televised live on the Pac-12 Network. The Buffs have won their past three meetings with the Trojans.

    Another tight tough loss for the Buffs, with another questionable call (this time an awarded penalty kick to the Bruins when it looked to me like the Bruin forward ran into the back of a Buff defender but got the call) right after the Buffs had tied the score putting the Buffs behind.

    On the positive side, this year has shown the Buffs look (to my uneducated eyes anyways) skill-wise able to compete with ALL of the Pac teams, which wasn't always the case a few years ago. In this match looks like (at least from the stats) the Buffs more than competed with a 7-2 shots on goal advantage. With all the freshmen earning playing time this year, and may of the leading scorers returning next year, hopefully the offense will start to gel more and finish more scoring opportunities (both the rest of this year and beyond), which to me seems to be the main thing lacking so far this year.

    Anyways, time for the team to come together, and take advantage of the opportunity to get a quality win @ #24 USC Sunday.
