Denver Goes 4-2-1 on the Weekend

Women’s soccer (5-1) split a pair of matches.  The Pios waxed Kansas State at DU soccer stadium, 3-1 Thursday evening. Denver had goals from three different players – Riley Baker, Natalie Beckman (of course) and Sydney Sharp. That makes back-to-back Power-Five wins against Utah (Pac-12 ) and Kansas State (Big 12).
