PROVO -- No. 23 BYU scored four goals in the first-half of action and two in the second on its way to a 6-0 rout over Dixie College Monday evening at South Stadium.

"I thought tonight was a great step in the right direction," head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "We capitalized on some good opportunities. I thought we looked more unified as a team tonight. We really have a lot of depth this year, which I think we showed tonight."

BYU scored its first goal of the evening 15 minutes into the game off a bullet from Kelsea Kakadelas. Haylee Cuthbert sent the ball to Kakadelas, who dribbled left across the box, stopped 18-feet out and placed the ball in the upper-right corner.

Less than two minutes later Kakadelas found herself the beneficiary of a loose ball that popped out her direction. She gently placed the shot into the bottom-right corner of the net as the ball sailed in between several Rebel defenders.

In the 31st minute, Cuthbert sent a corner to Claire Thomas on the opposite side of the net, who sent a downward header into the net. The final goal of the half, scored five minutes later, was also a header as Annie Zwhalen lobbed a pass to Larkin waiting by the net.

Sophomore Alyssa Vander Veur made excellent use of her time during the second period, scoring back-to-back goals. In the 61st minute, Natalie Nate tapped the ball over to Katie Larkin, who flipped it to Vander Veur for the open shot. Ten minutes later, Vander Veur showed sure footwork as she wove through three Rebel defenders and fired a left-footer into the upper-left corner of the net.

Dixie College never earned a real solid look on goal and was outshot 16-2. The Cougars also had a 10-1 advantage in corner kicks.

BYU opens its season at home on Friday against Weber State. Game time is slated for 7 p.m., at South Stadium.

"We're really looking forward to our first game of the season," Rockwood said. "I think we have a pretty good idea now of who we want to put on the field, so it should be a good contest. Weber State is a talented team. We'll have to come ready to play."
