STOCKTON -- Behind the steady foot of sophomore Katie Larkin, No. 18 BYU (5-1-0) handed Pacific (5-1-1) its first loss as the Cougars scored with just five minutes remaining in the game to win, 1-0.

"We really battled hard tonight against a very talented team," head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "I was proud of our defense because they limited Pacific's very talented forwards. Pacific plays a different style than most teams we play, so it was good for us to see a different type of team."

BYU's lone goal came in the 85th minute off a cross from Booke Bowman to Katie Larkin in the middle of the goal box. Larkin blasted in her second goal of the year to secure a Cougar victory.

For the first time this season Pacific failed to protect a shutout. Tiger goalie Jaime Souza spent about 660 minutes in the net without allowing a single goal until Larkin's score.

The game was a hard fought battle with both teams earning six shots on goal apiece. The Tigers outshot BYU 14-11. Goalkeeper Erika Woodbury secured six crucial saves, while Pacific's Jaime Souza made five.

BYU heads back to Utah on Saturday to face Utah State at 1 p.m., in Logan.
