The Colorado women's lacrosse team rolled to an 18-4 victory at Fresno State on Sunday, giving the Buffs their first 2-0 start in their three-year history.

CU scored six times in the first 6 minutes, 11 seconds, with Marie Moore finding the net first at the 28:01 mark. Darby Kiernan had four first-half goals and Cali Castagnola added three for a 12-2 halftime lead.

"I think we were just dodging really hard and that created a lot of space, especially on the back side," Kiernan said. "We were able to finish well from eight meters."

Paige Soenksen had six saves, including five in the second half. Sarah Lautman, CU's only senior, had her first three-goal game since 2014.

The Buffaloes travel to 11th-ranked Notre Dame on Friday and play at Marquette next Sunday.

CU skiing wins New Mexico Invitational

CU's Mads Stroem won the men's 5K freestyle race and the Buffs' Ola Johansen, Max Luukko and Henrik Gunnarsson took the top three spots in the men's slalom, helping the Buffs win the 2016 Drew Judycki Memorial Jade Enterprises New Mexico Invitational at Red River, N.M.

"It was a good weekend," CU coach Richard Rokos said. "When you get on the podium like we were able to do on the men's side, it's a very good weekend. We were trying to have a carbon copy of yesterday and it worked."

CU finished with 676 points, ahead of Utah (646) and the University of Denver (595).

Johansen took first at 1:35.97, ahead of Luukko (1:37.02) and Gunnarsson (1:37.02). It's their first men's alpine podium sweep in the 26 years under Rokos.

In the women's slalom, CU senior Jessica Honkonen had a sixth-place finish (1:41.74) and freshman Nora Christensen was 11th (1:42.67).
