Double-Overtime Thriller Finds BYU 2-1 Winners Over St. Mary's

PROVO -- Junior Annie Hoecherl headed a perfectly delivered corner kick from All-American Aleisha Cramer-Rose into the back of the net to give BYU a 2-1 win over St. Mary's College in double overtime Friday night. With the win, the Cougars improve to 4-5-0 on the season, while the Gaels fall to 3-5-1.

"Annie came through, stepped up and what a way to win the game," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "It was a booster for us. We finally played a good soccer game, especially in the first half."

That first half saw the Cougars take a 1-0 lead off of Rose's second goal of the season. The junior midfielder/defender placed a free kick beyond the reach of Gael keeper Ruth Montgomery, Soccer America's 2001 most valuable player.

BYU out-shot SMC 13-1 in the first half and had several good looks at the net as Montgomery scrambled for seven saves in the first 45 minutes.

St. Mary's evened the score in the 63rd minute when Jennifer Barbara poked the ball past Cougar keeper Ashley Smith, who had six saves on the night in her second start of the season.

Regulation ended 1-1, as did the ensuing first overtime, but not without seven more shots by the Cougars. A crowd of 1,352 saw BYU take 40 shots compared to SMC's eight for the game.

With less than two minutes remaining in the second and last overtime, Rose's kick found Hoecherl charging the net and heading the ball into the goal.

"We were able to play our game," Rockwood said. "The girls have done a good job of remaining positive even though it's been hard."

Their fourth home win of the season will have to carry the Cougars as they begin a six-game road stretch that will cover approximately 7,000 miles in three weeks, beginning with an Oct. 3 matchup with Washington State. The game will begin at 3 p.m. PDT in Pullman, Wash.
