Buffaloes Win Second Straight To Even Record

BOULDER — A sound defensive effort and hat tricks from three different players led the University of Colorado women's lacrosse team to a 15-11 win over No. 20 Arizona State here in an Easter Sunday match at CU's on-campus Kittredge Field.

The win avenged a 16-11 loss to the Sun Devils in Tempe last Sunday, ASU's first-ever win over the Buffaloes. Colorado evened its records overall (5-5) and in Pac-12 play (3-3) with the win, and in the process snapped Arizona State's five-game winning streak, as ASU fell to 7-3 (4-2 in conference games).
