Kornieck comes in in the 80th minute v Mexico and is directly involved in the only goal of the match -
She really seems to be making the most of the minutes she’s getting. It’s going to be great to see her grow in the coming years.

Kornieck on for the final three minutes or so for a very tired Rose Lavelle. US defeats Canada 1-0 to qualify for the 2024 Olympics! They had already qualified for thee 2023 World Cup.

It looks like he move from Orlando to San Diego has jump started her professional career. And her stellar play with SD is what earned her a call up to the national team.

To get call ups for the national team between now and the World Cup next summer she will need to continue to get Andonovski's attention through consistently impactful play with SD. And if she gets more call ups she has to get onto the pitch during matches and continue to make an impact. Making thee World Cup roster will be a challenge as the roster will only have 23 players.

The US hosts a pair of friendlies with Nigeria in early September. Hopefully Kornieck will be on the roster for them.

SAN FRANCISCO—The Pac-12 coaches anticipate the Colorado soccer team to finish in the top half of the conference, slotting the Buffaloes fifth in Wednesday's preseason coaches poll.

Stanford was picked at the top of the poll, earning six first-place votes. UCLA and Washington State also got first-place votes, coming in second and third, respectively. USC, Colorado and California rounded out the top six.

CU was picked eighth last year and finished with an 8-7-4 record. The last time the Buffs were inside the top-five of the preseason poll was in 2019 (5th).

Additionally, the United Soccer Coaches named fifth-year defender Hannah Sharts as one of its 35 Defenders to Watch List. The lists are being released for the first time this season by the Division I All-America Committees to promote college soccer leading up to the official start date for the regular season later this month. The lists include United Soccer Coaches All-Americans and first or second-team All-Region players from 2021, who are scheduled to return for the 2022 season.

Sharts, one of the team's captains for the 2022 season, returns to the fold with fellow fifth-year Kayleigh Webb. The Buffs have a mix of strong veteran leaders and a solid core of newcomers, including Stanford transfer Civana Kuhlmann.

Colorado opens the season on the Pac-12 Network against Weber State (Aug. 18, 4 p.m. MT). The Buffs will host San Diego (Aug. 21) and Valparaiso (Aug. 26) before heading on the road to take on No. 3 BYU (Aug. 29).

I feel this may be one of the best teams in program history and thus it's possible they will finish higher than fifth.

Lots of talent and depth at almost every position.

back from scrimmage. Team looks much more dangerous in the offensive end with multiple options. James, kluhman, and Hayword all look capable of scoring goals. Lister, freshman from England and Layne a freshman from FoCo both looked like they have talent to score. The both need some seasoning. Black beat the gold and gold was mainly the starters but the black team had Nikki Marshall and two men playing for them and the guys scored 2 of the goals for the black. Hanson and Grust looked good in net. Grust has some J.J. in her as she talks all the time. The transfer from Memphis is 3rd string.

I too was at the scrimmage and will second what Bmixer stated above ^^^. In the attack this team looks like it will produce a lot of scoring chances and will be considerably better than last season's team in this department. Lots of depth both at forward and in the midfield. And remember that Jenny Beyer is away with the German U-20 national team until sometime late this month.

Newcomers scored all but one of the goals that weren't scored by the men who were guest players. Shyra James was the only veteran to score. Transfer Civana Kuhlman scored the first goal about 30 seconds into the match. In general, all the newcomers looked good to very good. They were confident on the ball and comfortable in the system.

Midfielders Ellen Jones and Hannah Duguid both looked to run and run at the defense causing problems.

Five days till the first match that counts.
