The Northern Colorado Bear Women’s Soccer team opened the season 1-1 in the annual Colorado Cup Tournament. Falling 2-1 in the season opener to Colorado College was followed up by a 3-1 victory over Air Force the following Sunday. As the team begins Week 2 of the season, Colorado Corner host Ben Blecha sat down to speak with head coach Tim Barrera about the start to the season and the expectation of this upcoming year:

Northern Colorado faces Colorado State in Fort Collins this afternoon (August 23). The Rams went 0-0-2 through the opening weekend and have the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week in goalkeeper Hunter Peifer. But Northern Colorado will look to counter using Maddie Roberts, who was the Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week following last weekend’s Northern Colorado action.
