LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of Wyoming women's soccer team split its first weekend of spring matches by defeating UC Colorado Springs, 4-1, and falling to Colorado, 2-1, on March 7 in Boulder, Colo. The Cowgirls are like many other teams nationwide that use the spring season to improve collectively and individually for the upcoming fall season. The time allows the team to try new positions and lineups.
"It was a good start for us considering our first competition was a double header and the second game was against Colorado," UW head coach Pete Cuadrado said. "We need to continue to clean up details within our play and finish off some of the chances we created so we reward the effort. All in all it was a good starting spot for us."
The Cowgirls now return home Sunday for two matches against Northern Colorado and Colorado School of Mines. Wyoming will play the Golden Bears in the Indoor Practice Facility at 10 a.m. MT and follow with the Miners at 2 p.m. UW will continue its home schedule on April 4 at the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex with a match against CSU-Pueblo at 1 p.m.
"We are excited and know that our spring schedule gives us a great mix of teams to help us improve for the fall season," Cuadrado added.
Wyoming will travel to Lincoln, Neb., on April 12 for matches with the Cornhuskers at 9 a.m. and against South Dakota State at 1 p.m.
The final event of the spring season will be the annual Alumni Game on April 26 in the IPF at 1 p.m.
