BYU Women's Soccer Team Shuts Out San Diego State, 4-0

PROVO -- Two goals by junior midfielder Jennie Christianson and a strong second half helped the 17th-ranked BYU women's soccer team defeat conference rival San Diego State,

4-0, Thursday night.

Freshman sensation Aleisha Cramer got the Cougars on the board midway through the first half when she placed a beautiful shot into the left corner of the net. Christianson put BYU up 2-0 just before halftime when her shot ricocheted off an Aztec defender and into the back of the net. The Cougars played the first half without All-American Staci Reynolds, who suffered a concussion in a game last week.

"We were not playing very inspired in the first half," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. We had too many turnovers on the offensive side. We have struggled against them (SDSU) before, but we had a good team effort tonight and were able to get a lot of people some minutes," Rockwood added.

Michelle Peterson sealed the game midway through the second half with her team-leading 14th goal of the season. Christianson scored her second goal of the night, and third of the season, when she headed in a cross from Lydia Ojuka.

"We came out in the second half and played much better," Rockwood said. "We were making our connections."

BYU remains unbeaten at home and moves to 11-3-1, 3-0 on the season while the Aztecs drop to 5-10, 2-1 for the year. The Cougars continue conference play with their final home game of the season Saturday against UNLV at 6 p.m. at South Field.
