BOULDER, Colo. — The 14th-ranked Oregon volleyball team won its third straight Pac-12 Conference road match Friday with a 25-19, 32-30, 14-25, 25-16 win over Colorado at the Coors Event Center.
Lindsey Vander Weide had 17 kills to help power the Ducks (12-5, 5-2 Pac-12) to the win over the Buffaloes (10-8, 2-5).
August Raskie had 41 assists, 11 digs and 10 kills for Oregon. Taylor Borup had 10 kills for Oregon, which hit .250 or better in its three set wins and only .097 in the third-set loss to Colorado.
The two teams were tied at 4 in the first set before the Ducks went on a 7-2 run to take control for an 11-6 lead. Colorado later tied it at 15, but the Ducks took control again with a 6-0 run.
Oregon jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the second set before Colorado rallied and had a chance to serve for the set leading 30-29. But kills by Sumeet Gill and Vander Weide and an attack error by Colorado gave the Ducks the set.
The Buffaloes led 8-7 in the fourth set before Oregon ran off five straight points to take the lead for good at 12-8 thanks to a Vander Weide kill and four Colorado attack errors.
