The greatest surprise of the fall season has been DU men’s soccer (1-5-2) scoring just four goals in nine matches. At this pace, at the end of the regular season, they will be sitting with 9 goals, well below their 10-year 30.7 goals per season average. The two lowest-scoring seasons in the last ten years have been 2009 and 2017 when the Pioneers found net 25 times. And, last season behind Andre Shinyashiki’s 28 goals, Denver had their highest goal output. Saturday’s 0-0 draw against conference foe Eastern Illinois leaves the Pioneers 0-0-1 in Summit League regular season play.
DU women’s soccer (4-4-2) finished their non-conference schedule with a 2-game swing into California. Friday night, DU outplayed UC Riverside all night long but trailed 0-1 in the waning seconds when Camryn McMillan found the net with 8 seconds remaining in regulation to gain a 1-1 tie. DU’s solid play continued on Sunday against Cal State Northridge with a 1-0 win with a goal from Samantha Feller at the 42-minute mark of the first half. DU out-shot the Matadors 11-5 and carried the afternoon.

Denver Volleyball (8-5, 1-1) started their conference season on the road, going 1-1 following an undefeated regular season last year. Playing four freshmen in the starting line-up during the weekend, head coach Tom Hogan’s squad got tested early in Fort Wayne, falling three games to one. But Sunday, behind juniors Lydia Bartalo (8 Kills, 1 blocks) and Tina Boe (10 kills, 2 blocks) along with freshman Kalea Fobert (10 kills, 2 blocks) and senior transfer Amanda Green (8 kills, 2 blocks), the Pioneers over-ran the Golden Eagles 3-0 to gain a split on the weekend.
