PROVO -- Despite controlling the game and having numerous scoring opportunities, No. 8 BYU (17-3-2) dropped a 1-0 tough decision to San Diego State (14-3-5), Saturday in the MWC Championship game.

"I was proud of the girls in this game," said BYU coach Jennifer Rockwood. "I thought we did a good job of controlling the game and we gave everything we could."

The Cougars controlled the tempo of the game throughout the entire match and were able to create scoring oppotunities, outshooting San Diego State 17-10. They also had seven corner kicks to the Aztecs six.

In the 80th minute, Cougar forward Kassidy C. Shumway had a scoring opportunity where she took a shot right in front of the net but the ball went just barely wide and missed the net.

BYU saw some good playing time in this match from Senior Ashleigh Jameson, who started the second half and was a big component in BYU's ability to keep the ball in Aztec territory.

The Aztecs forward Cat Walker scored the lone goal of the contest in the 28th minute of action.

After the game, three Cougars were named to the 2009 All-Conference Tournament Team. Senior Kassidy C. Shumway along with freshmen teammates Carlee Payne and Lindsi Lisonbee garnered the league honors. Shumway finished the game leading all players with four shots.

The Cougars now await an at-large bid to the 2009 NCAA Women's Soccer College Cup. The announcement will be made on Monday night.

"We won 17 games and had an outstanding schedule," Rockwood said. "I believe we deserve a chance to be in the tournament and keep our winning season alive."
