DENVER, Colo. -- The Gonzaga women's soccer team got a pair of second half goals in a 2-1 come from behind win at Denver Sunday.

The Zags (5-1-1) grabbed their fifth win of the season, after trailing for only the second time this season.

Following a scoreless first half, Meg Halvorson bent in a free kick from the top of the box and gave Denver the lead in the 58th minute.

Just 33 seconds later, India Jencks found the back of the net off of a cross from Sophia Viviano. Jencks' goal was her fifth of the season, and fourth in the last three games.

Maggie Conners' first collegiate goal was the gamewinner in the 77th minute. The freshman beat a defender and then curled a shot around the Pioneers' keeper.

The Bulldogs managed just two shots in the first half, but finished with a 10-9 advantage over DU (3-3-1). Gonzaga placed five shots on frame, while Denver had four. Isabel Jones made three saves for the Zags.

The Zags return to Spokane and host Fairleigh Dickinson Friday at 7 p.m., before welcoming Memphis to Luger Field Sunday.
