PROVO -- No. 17 BYU battled against William & Mary for 114 hard-fought minutes and outshot the Tribe 15-2, but in the second overtime the Tribe put the ball in the net to take a 1-0 win.

This is the Cougars' third game to go into overtime this season and their second game ending in double overtime.

“You always have to be at your best at this level of competition,” said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. “We settled on a few possessions, and just lacked in aggression.”

BYU’s (2-1-1) offense and defense proved dominant during regulation as their opponent was kept far from the Cougar goal. BYU constantly tested the William & Mary goalie by taking five shots in the first half and nine in the second.

“Their [William & Mary] keeper did her job well, and you have to give her credit,” Rockwood said. “We took 15 shots on her, and each time she was in the right place doing the right thing.”

BYU had multiple chances to attack with a total of 14 corner kicks to the Tribe’s one.

With the clock winding down in the second period, William & Mary (2-1-0) made one final offensive attack on goal only to be swept away by Hermann Trophy Candidate Andrea Willis, sending the game into sudden death overtime.

The first period of overtime went back and forth between both teams. William & Mary got their first shot on goal of the game with seven minutes left in the period but with neither team scoring, the game went into a second and final overtime.

In the 114th minute of the second overtime, William & Mary’s Krissy Vornadore chipped the ball over the Cougar defense to Erin Liberatore who scored the goal to end the game.

The Cougars will play No. 15 Oklahoma State on Monday, Sept. 7, at South Field at noon.

Students will be able to get into the game with their student ID because All-Sports passes have not yet been activated.
