Cougar Women Capture 3-0 Soccer Win Over Washington St.

PROVO -- A dominating first-half performance propelled BYU's women's soccer team to a 3-0 victory over Pac-Ten opponent Washington St., Monday, in the first meeting ever between the two schools.

The Cougars first-half domination began when senior midfielder Natalyn Lewis scored the Cougars first goal at the 36-minute mark after receiving a pass from Kim Lowe. The Cougars second goal came just minutes later at the 28-minute mark when Sara Reading beat the Washington St. goalkeeper.

"I was very pleased with the way we played in the first half," said Cougar coach Jennifer Rockwood. "The first half was one of our best performances of the season. Michelle Jensen was unbelievable in the first half."

Jennie Christianson scored the only goal for the Cougars in the second half, at the 55-minute mark. The Cougars lacked the intensity they showed in the first half. BYU had just six second-half shots as compared to 16 in the first half.

"We got a lot of work to do," Rockwood said. "The game is 90 minutes and we have to learn to play 90 minutes. It's only the fourth game of the year. I have all the confidence in the world that we can do it better, but it's still early in the season."

The Cougars improve their season record to 3-1 while Washington St. suffered its first loss of the year. BYU will host Creighton on Thurs., September 7 at 7 p.m., at South Field.
