The University of Colorado women’s soccer team improved to 5-0 after a goal was scored in overtime Friday night at the University of Denver Invitational at Ciber Field.
The match-up was a season record-breaker for the Buffs. The women made 33 shots on goal in regulation time and 39 including overtime, out-doing the previous record of 32.
According to CU’s Athletic Department, the previous record was set in women’s soccer’s inaugural season in 1996.
The Buffs’ 19 shots on goal in the first half were more than double that of Alabama’s 9 in the entire game.
Despite their attempts, the team was unable to put a ball into the back of the net in regulation time.
Then, in the 97th minute of the game, sophomore midfielder Madison Krauser crossed the ball from the left side of the field, finding the foot of freshman forward Brie Hooks, who struck the ball into the back of the net, giving the Buffs the only goal of the game.
With that, Alabama’s season record fell to 1-3.
Both teams played a very physical game and racked up a total of 15 fouls between the them.
Hooks now has six goals in the season and is currently fourth place on the CU freshman list. CU senior goalkeeper Annie Brunner had three saves.
