The season of firsts continues for the University of Colorado lacrosse team, with the Buffaloes defeating the Temple Owls 15-6 to grab their first ever win at Kittredge Field.
The Buffs were ready for action following a bye week, picking up back-to-back wins for the first time in program history and extending their home record to a perfect 2-0. With the win, CU improves to 3-2 overall, 0-1 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation.
Temple grabbed a win over MPSF opponent Oregon on Saturday, but was overpowered by the Buffs on Tuesday. The Owls slip to 2-3 on the season.
“I think obviously Temple is a great opponent,” CU head coach Ann Elliott said. “We’ve been working on preparing for them for 10 days, really focusing in on the basics and playing together, and I thought our kids came out from that first draw with a lot of energy and played hard.”
For the fourth time this season, at least two Buffs scored three or more goals. Cali Castagnola led the group career-high six points. Her five goals top her previous best of four in her Colorado debut against Stetson. Co-captain Marie Moore also impressed, scoring three goals (two off of free position shots) and contributing two assists.
