DENVER, Colo. - Alabama sophomore goalkeeper Emily Rusk had a night for the record books, but her efforts were not enough as the Crimson Tide fell to Colorado, 1-0, in overtime in the opening game of the Denver Invitational.
Rusk, making her second career start, had 19 saves on the night, which were the second-most stops in a game in program history. Amy Pseja holds the record when she made 24 saves vs. Arkansas on Sept. 25, 1994.
The Buffaloes, who are off to a school-record 5-0 start with tonight's win, collected 39 shots in the game, compared to nine shots for the Crimson Tide.
The game-winning goal came six minutes into the first overtime, at the 96:47 mark, by Brie Hooks off an assist from Madi Krauser.
Alabama falls to 1-3 on the season, which now includes a pair of one-goal losses.
The Crimson Tide will face tournament host and 20th-ranked Denver on Sunday afternoon at 2:15 p.m. CT (1:15 p.m. MT).
