The University of Denver women’s soccer team bounceed University of Buffalo 3-0 on Sunday afternoon at CIBER Field, powered by goals from junior Alison Kenney, sophomore Kalie Vaughn and freshman Nicholette DiGiacomo.
“Our biggest disappointment this weekend was losing to LMU on Friday, and I am happy with the way our team regrouped and performed today to get a good win against a very good team,” said head coach Jeff Hooker. “The second half was by far much better than the first, and I think that can be attributed to some tired legs and how aggressive Buffalo played us.”
Denver, 1-1, opened the scoring in the 39th minute as Kenney converted a free kick from just outside the 18-yard box, netting it into the top right corner. The Pioneers struck again just minutes into the second half as Vaughn received a pass from sophomore Kaitlin Bast, dribbled into the box and fired past the Bulls, 0-2, keeper.
The Pioneers’ final goal came in the 85th minute as DiGiacomo scored the first goal of her collegiate career, taking a Kristen Hamilton cross and slipping it into the bottom right corner of the goal.
Denver remains at home to host the DU Invitational next weekend, welcoming UNLV, Drake and Colorado to CIBER Field. The Invitational will open with a 4:30 p.m. game between UNLV and Drake, followed by the Pioneers’ game against Colorado at 7 p.m., on Saturday.
The weekend’s action will conclude on Monday with Colorado playing either UNLV or Drake at 10 a.m. and the Pioneers playing either UNLV or Drake at 12:15 p.m. Both the Pioneers’ matches during the DU Invitational will be available on Pioneers Vision.
