Iowa State soccer was handed another loss on Sunday, as Colorado defeated the Cyclones 3-1.

The Buffaloes jumped out to an early lead and never looked back after junior midfielder Taylor Kornieck put one past the goalkeeper after a long free kick in minute four. Colorado followed this up with another goal only four minutes later by redshirt senior forward Jorian Baucom.

The score would remain 2-0 until the second half.

In the second half, Colorado kept poured it on with a goal in minute 59 by freshman midfielder Jesse Loren after a corner kick.

Iowa State senior forward Klasey Medelberg scored her first goal of the season with one minute remaining in the game, but ultimately it was too late.

Iowa State goaltender Dayja Scnwichtenberg had two of Colorado’s goals bounce off her hands at tough angles and fly into the net.

Dissapointment circled this game for the Cyclones, and with the CyHawk game coming up next Friday, the momentum will need to shift if Iowa State can earn its second win of the season.

The slow start has not been turned around yet, and the Cyclones now sit at 1-4-1.
