Cougars Defeat Lobos 3-2 in Duel of Conference Leaders

ALBUQUERQUE -- All-American Aleisha Cramer-Rose scored two goals to power the BYU women's soccer team to a 3-2 win over co-conference leader New Mexico in Albuquerque Thursday night. With the win, the Cougars move to 3-0-0 in conference play and 9-5-0 overall, while UNM falls to 2-1-0 in the conference and 9-6-0 overall.

The Lobos scored first on a header by forward Erchen Theys at 26:46. Rose and the Cougars would answer six minutes later, however, as the junior midfielder/defender scored two goals in six minutes to put BYU up 2-1.

Rose's first goal came in the 32nd minute off a penalty kick, and then her free kick from 30 yards out at 38:46 also found the back of the net.

"Aleisha played a great game, one of her better games of the year," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood.

The Cougars controlled the tempo for the rest of the contest until Lobo Rachael Addison shot a goal past Cougar keeper Mandy Gott to tie the game at 2-2 in the 81st minute.

"We got off to a great start and had control of the game, and then New Mexico scored on a perfect strike to tie it up," said Rockwood.

But four minutes later freshman Brooke Bowman delivered the game winner on a cross from senior Jeni Viernes at 85:08 to give BYU a 3-2 win.

"We did a nice job of not panicking," Rockwood said. "We didn't get too flustered."

BYU will finish its six-game road swing with a trip to South Bend, Ind., to face the No. 23-ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19. Live stats will be available on Notre Dame's Web site at www.und.com. The Cougars will then return home to host UNLV on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.
