First Cougar Road Trip Ends in 2-1 Loss to Michigan

ANN ARBOR -- On its first road trip of the season, the BYU women's soccer team lost 2-1 to No. 18 Michigan on a hot, muggy Labor Day in Ann Arbor. The loss brings the Cougars' season record to 1-1, with BYU's win coming from a 2-1 upset of No. 2 Portland Aug. 30 in Provo.

Aleisha Cramer-Rose scored the Cougars' lone goal against Michigan on a direct kick past Michigan keeper Suzie Grech. The goal, coming in the 11th minute, gave BYU a 1-0 edge, a lead they would hold until the Wolverines tied the game in the 48th minute.

"We were fortunate to be ahead at the half," BYU Head Coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "They came out very strong, hard and fast, and they were very aggressive to the ball. We couldn't find any sort of passing rhythm."

In the second half, the Cougars were able to penetrate the Wolverine defense and, on several occasions, took solid shots at the goal.

"In the second half we finally settled down and had some decent looks, but just couldn't put them in," Rockwood said. "We're still a very young team with a very bright future, so we'll just have to take it one game at a time."

Michigan's Stephanie Chavez scored in the 48th minute to tie the game 1-1 on a set piece after BYU forward Lydia Ojuka picked up a yellow card. The Wolverines made the game-winning goal in the 61st minute when Erika Kleinholz fed an assist to Abby Crumptom

For the game, the Cougars took 17 shots on goal while the Wolverines fired off 18 shots and Cougar goal keeper Amanda Gott matched Michigan's Grech with six saves.

Cougar Farrah Olfheins-Olmstead saw action for the first time since sustaining an injury to her ACL in the Spring, playing about 20 minutes in each half, Rockwood said.

BYU returns home this week for two games at South Field. Friday, Sept. 6, the Cougars host Kentucky at 8 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 7, Northwestern comes to Provo for a 7 p.m. tilt with BYU.
