After more than two weeks without a game, the Colorado lacrosse team took on in-state rival No. 15 Denver on Thursday night for the second time this season at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium in Denver.

CU won 14-7 the first time the two teams met on Feb. 28, at Kittredge Field in Boulder but this time, the Pioneers were victorious on their home field, defeating the Buffaloes 10-7.

Colorado, which had not played since April 11, is now 7-6 heading into postseason competition, while Denver is 13-1.

“I thought we still came out and competed today,” Colorado coach Ann Elliott Whidden said. “Denver is a good team. It was a challenge for us; they are good on defense. We had a little trouble in those situations and we know we have players that can help, we just need to capitalize on that. I thought defensively we did a good job. Julia did a great job in goal. So there are a lot of things for us to be proud of. Obviously, we wanted a different result, we believed in ourselves, that’s disappointing but we have a lot to build off of as we head into the Pac-12 tournament.”


The Buffs head to the Pac-12 Tournament in Stanford, Calif. CU earned the No. 3 seed and will face No. 2 USC on May 6, at 8:30 p.m. in the second semifinal.
