Your Colorado Buffaloes led a hard-fought effort against #11 University of Denver in the RMCRHA Regional Playoff Finals. Buffs won game 1 6-4 due to solid defense and three goals from senior captain Max Harrison. Unfortunately, the Pioneers were too much for the Buffs, as they took games 2 and 3 to win the series. Due to the Buffs hard work during the regular season, they received an at-large bid to Nationals. However, they had to decline the bid due to injuries.
Thanks to seniors Max Harrison and Zach Henderson for their contributions to the team, and wish them luck on their next adventures! In the meantime, we are still seeking donations to fund the 2016-2017 season. Go Buffs!
