BYU and SDSU Play to 0-0 Tie

A new start for BYU with the beginning of conference play ended in similar fashion. After a physical double-overtime game that featured multiple scoring opportunities, BYU and SDSU battled to a 0-0 tie Thursday at South Stadium.

BYU (4-7-3) came out loose and excited for a game against a team that consistently plays well against the Cougars. One of the best opportunities to score in the first half came on senior Jaime Rendich's third shot of the game, a direct kick from 15 yards out. The shot missed wide right.

Both teams came out in the second half and played with more intensity providing the 1,359 announced attendence with some solid entertainment. With 19:40 left in regulation, sophomore Bobbi Tillotson crossed the ball to an open Annie Zwahlen who headed the ball in the goal. The goal however, was called off on a BYU offsides penalty.

Two overtime periods and multiple scoring opportunities later, both head coaches met at midfield to congratulate the other on their respective teams' energy and hard play.

"What can I say, we had a lot of chances tonight," said head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "We just couldn't get the ball in the net. It has been the case all season. We have got to find a way to score."

BYU's defense, which has steadily improved all season, recorded its fifth shutout, and held the Aztec offense to four shots on the evening. Goalie Erika Woodbury finished with three saves. SDSU falls to 3-6-4 on the season.

"We've improved with each game, but unfortunately, our record isn't showing that right now," Rockwood added.

The Mountain West Conference season continues for BYU at home Saturday against UNLV at 7 p.m. Saturday night's game is Senior Night for BYU and the team will honor three seniors: Kimmie Martins, Mandy Gott and Krissa Reinbold. The game will be televised live on BYUTV on Dish Network and Direct TV and tape delayed on KBYU locally.
