Stoltenberg, from Mission Viejo, Calif., scored an unassisted goal in the 15th minute when she dribbled past CU defenders and beat goalkeeper Kara Linder just under the cross bar. Her second goal of the contest came in the 63rd minute, another unassisted score where she dribbled past a CU defender before putting it past Linder.

Colorado came right back to score just four minutes later when Shaye Marshall netted a goal in the 67th minute past UO sophomore goalkeeper Cody Miles.
