Wyoming downs KU soccer, 2-1


Wyoming sophomore Kimmy Burbank scored two goals to power the Cowgirls to a 2-1 college soccer victory over Kansas University on Friday at the Madrid Soccer Complex.

KU outshot Wyoming, 21-12, but managed just one goal, from Liana Salazar in the 65th minute.

“We’ve played really well these last three games, but somehow we’re still losing,” KU coach Mark Francis said. “We’ve been playing really pretty soccer, but right now we need to get our confidence back. Maybe we just have to get more direct and solely worry about trying to score goals and win the game. We just have to find a way to win Sunday. It doesn’t have to be pretty, we just need a result.”

Kansas fell to 2-4-1. Wyoming improved to 3-0-3.

KU will meet Colorado College at noon Sunday in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
