University of Denver women’s soccer senior forward Kristen Hamilton scored two goals and added an assist, propelling the No. 16 Pioneers to a 3-0 victory over rival Colorado at CIBER Field on Sunday afternoon. The game was originally scheduled to be played in Boulder, Colo., but was moved to Denver due to flooding conditions.

Hamilton tied and broke Denver’s all-time record with 43 career goals, passing Taryn Hemmings (2004–08) and Kathy Conklin (1989–92). Hamilton also broke DU’s NCAA Division I record with 115 career points, leaving her a single point shy of Denver’s all-time scoring record.

The Pioneers (7-0-0) remain undefeated after handing Colorado (6-1-0) its first loss. It also marked DU’s fourth straight win over the Buffaloes.

“The first half was a good battle. Both teams had some chances,” said head coach Jeff Hooker. “We were the ones that scored. They had several corner kicks there toward the end, and something could’ve bounced the other way and gone the other way.”

The Pioneers next head to TCU on Friday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m., and to Nebraska on Sunday, Sept. 22 at noon.
