LAS VEGAS -- The BYU women's soccer team posted its third shutout in a row and its seventh this season as it dealt UNLV a 7-0 loss before 1,117 Thursday night in Las Vegas.
The Cougars (14-2, 3-0 conference) went up 2-0 on goals by senior Maren Hendershot in the first half before catching fire at the outset of the second half. The team connected for three quick goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half and didn't look back.
BYU led a balanced scoring attack, with Hendershot, Kim Lowe, Sarah Higham, Sara Reading, Jeni Williardson and Jennie Christianson all scoring goals. Karen Wunderli-Robbins and Amber Anderson were also on the board with an assist each.
The Cougars outshot the Rebels 30 to 7 in the win, allowing UNLV (6-8, 1-2 conference) just two shots in the first half. With the win, BYU remained undefeated in conference play. All three conference victories have been shutouts for the Cougars.
BYU travels to California Saturday to face conference rival San Diego State for the first time this season. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
