Double Overtime Game Ends in 1-1 Tie

After two ten-minute overtime periods, the physical soccer game between USC and BYU ended Thursday in a 1-1 tie.

Sophomore Annie Zwahlen provided the lone BYU goal early in the second half on a breakaway, beating USC goalkeeper Veronica Simonton. The goal was the fourth on the season for Zwahlen.

The Cougars fought hard all game against a larger and faster USC team, but couldn't hold on as USC midfielder Rosa Anna Tantillo scored with just 12 minutes remaining in regulation. Despite strong efforts by both teams during overtime, the game remained notched at one goal each. In tournament play, the game would be decided with a shootout.

BYU's best opportunities to steal the game came in the first overtime, with three corner kicks.

"We had all the looks we wanted in that first overtime," said head coach Jen Rockwood. "We just couldn't quite put one in there. But the team played well today. We're just seven games in and we are just trying to get used to playing with each other and improve with each game."

Rockwood said she thought the defense played particularly well against a very physical USC squad. Junior transfer Nicole Anderson started her first game for BYU on defense along with Lindsy Humphrey, Claire Thomas and Erika Woodbury. Woodbury played solid in the box against the Women of Troy, who had 16 shots in the game.

The tie puts the Cougars record at 3-3-1. BYU will remain in Los Angeles to face Loyola Marymount Saturday at 1 p.m.
