    The Buffs soccer team is back in action today when they head out to Denver for the Denver Invitational where they will first face Alabama today and then Tennessee-Martin on Sunday. The Alabama game will kick off at 4:30 pm MT. I will not be around for play-by-play today, but will post any info that I get. There is also no video for today's match, just live stats.

    Not at all. They are 1-2 on the year with an overtime win against Georgia State and losses to both Wake Forest and Mercer. They finished last season 3-8-2 in conference, 8-9-2 overall, which was good enough for 6th in the SEC west. We definitely should be able to win this one.

    Looks like Alabama's playing for a tie.

    At 17:48 of the first half, CU has taken 8 shots. Bama's taken none. But Bama has managed to commit 3 fouls.

    Not finding the back of the net. 19 shots to 3, but the score is 0-0 at the half.

    Given the stats it seems likely that Alabama is playing "bunker ball," putting most of their players behind the ball and daring the Buffs to take long shots that aren't too much of a threat. We might also surmise, given the large # of saves by Alabama, that many of the shots on goal are going right to the keeper.

    At 81:01, Brie Hooks hits the crossbar. Still 0-0.

    Heading to OT. CU with 36 shots (18 on goal) in regulation to UA's 9/3.

    Buffs win 1-0 on a goal by freshman phenom Brie Hooks at 96:47. Assist by Madison Krauser.

    Buffs improve to 5-0 on the season -- all shutouts.

    The "Brie Spree" continues this time in the 97th minute with a "golden goal" to keep the Buffs undefeated at 5-0-0!

    CU faces UT-Martin Sunday @DU.

    Sounds like they really dominated despite the close score.

    She is definitely a keeper (and no I don't mean she should play in goal)
