Huskies Earn Dominant 4-1 Win Over Colorado

Oct 2, 2022

SEATTLE – McKenzie Weinert put Washington ahead less than 10 minutes in and the Huskies rode the momentum to a commanding 4-1 win over Colorado Sunday afternoon at Husky Soccer Stadium.
The Huskies capitalized on a Buffalo mistake to take the early advantage. After a failed CU clearance left the ball free in the box, Kyla Ferry's flicked header found Weinert, who hit it first time to make it 1-0.
Summer Yates doubled the Husky lead in the 40th minute, collecting her own rebound and thumping a shot past the keeper to put Washington ahead 2-0 at the halftime break.
Washington remained on the offensive coming out of the halftime break, with Yates nearly securing her second brace in as many matches in the 54th minute.
Instead, it was Kelsey Branson who bagged a third for the Huskies in the 69th minute. After Weinert's attempt at goal was blocked, the freshman got the feintest touch on CU's attempted clearance, redirecting the ball into the vacant goal.
The Buffaloes pulled one back in the 80th minute, but Cori Sullivan restored the three-goal advantage just minutes later, burying a header from the center of the box off feeds from Shae Holmes and Karlee Stueckle.
Colorado drew a penalty in the in the 89th minute but Jenny Beyer's ensuing spot kick caromed off the left post and the Huskies were able to close out the remaining time to lock up the 4-1 victory.
With a pair of home victories in tow, Washington heads to the Bay Area for a pair of road matches next week, taking on Stanford on Thursday and Cal on Sunday.
