Colorado College’s home winning streak came to a conclusive end Sunday as the Boise State University Broncos headed home with a 3-1 win.

Colorado College, which plays its next four matches on the road, dropped to 1-1 with the loss despite out-shooting the Broncos by a 22-14 margin. CC’s only goal came on a penalty kick by senior Tiffany Brown with 9:31 left to play after BSU had built a 3-0 lead on tallies by Gabby Garcia, Tylyn Hughes and Katy Oehring. 

The defeat snapped an eight-game unbeaten streak (7-0-1) at home for Colorado College, dating back to Sept. 20, 2009.

BSU keeper Lix Ruiz finished with 13 saves including nine in the second half when the Tigers tested her on 10 occasions. Freshmen Lauren DiGregorio and Lynn Froetscher, who teamed up to produce the game-winning goal in Friday’s 1-0 overtime victory against the University of Dayton, both soloed in alone from the right side before Brown finally averted a shutout at 80:29. But Ruiz effectively cut down the angle both times to preserve a 3-0 lead.
