First XI against UCLA: Brunner, Jones, Herzl, Ward, Huynh, Hughes, Jerman, Rice, Bolyard, Krauser, Hooks, Stuller
We're just about underway
This would be a huge game for the program with a win.
Tied 0-0 at the half. UCLA leads 7-4 in shots.
10 minutes into the 2nd half and UCLA scores to take a 1-0 lead.
20 minutes remaining and still 1-0 UCLA
Under 10 minutes remaining and it's looking like the Buffs will fall short of beating UCLA.
It's over. Buffs fall short of beating #2 UCLA 1-0. I was only falling by the stats, but it looked like they fought hard and losing this match by one goal is nothing to be ashamed of.
The Buffs may have lost by only one goal, but it wasn't close. UCLA is a league of their own. It's amazing the Buffs didn't give up three or four goals in the match. UCLA looked like the Japanese women's national team with their possession and ability to create repeated chances on goal with outstanding movement of the ball between players or one-on-one. And UCLA was also bigger and quicker to the ball all of which really limited the Buffs chances.
CU still has a good shot at the NCAA tourney, but they need to get at least one win in Arizona and maybe two.
I agree. I watched about half the game and UCLA was far superior in their ball handling, posession and creating scoring opportunities. They also seemed to have a lot more speed than CU did. I was very surprised to see we only lost 1-0.
CU is improving for sure but after watching that game you could see how far we still have to go.
We're trying to make the tournament. UCLA is expecting to win it.
