BOULDER, Colo. - Senior forward Keri Sarver scored three goals and sophomore goalkeeper Ali Wolff gained her first shutout of the season as Maryland defeated Colorado, 5-0, in the second round of the University of Colorado Invitational at Pleasant View Soccer Complex this afternoon. The three-goal hat trick marked the fourth of Sarver's career and tied the school record for goals in a single game.

She added goals at the 53:32 and 57:10 marks to give the Terps their final margin of victory.
