Colorado soccer junior Taylor Kornieck has moved into the top-five CU career leaders in goals and points.

The unbeaten Colorado women’s soccer team passed its toughest test of the season with flying colors Thursday, knocking off seventh-ranked Washington State 3-1 at Prentup Field.

The Buffaloes need two more results to match the program-record 15-game unbeaten streak set in 2003. That quest continues Sunday afternoon as the Buffs host Washington in a Pac-12 Conference battle. A look at the matchup:
