With the Nebraska soccer team starting the regular season on the road this year, Saturday’s exhibition match was the only time the home fans could catch a glimpse of No. 22 NU before the fun officially started next weekend. And the Huskers made sure they didn’t disappoint.
Two early goals from Haley Hanson heavily titled the scales in Nebraska’s favor, and freshman Natalie Cooke marked her debut with a goal before halftime to deliver the knockout punch. Colorado College answered back with a goal as the game wore on, but the Huskers’ spirited display kept the game out of reach in NU’s lone preseason contest this season.
