PROVO -- No. 6 BYU (12-1-1, 1-1-0) took no time bouncing back from Thursday's disappointing loss with a 4-0 rout over TCU (7-6-0, 0-2-0) Saturday at South Stadium. The Cougars feet were lightening fast as they came together offensively and defensively, proving why they are one of the Top 10 teams in the nation.

"It was a much better feeling tonight," head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "The girls reacted really well--really positively. I could tell yesterday at practice that we would be okay. We really attacked tonight."

Only nine minutes into the game, Natalie Nate sent a short, sideways pass to Jaime Rendich Beck off a free kick, who caught the ball 25 yards out and blasted it into the back of the net. The goal was Rendich Beck's seventh of the season.

"We've won every game when we score first," Rendich Beck said. "It's so important to be the first team to score. Thursday's loss motivated us to come out and show them how we can play."

BYU was a force to be reckoned with, as the Cougars saw numerous opportunities to score. Two plays in particular during the first half gave TCU quite the scare. Charlene Lui had one shot that hit the very bottom of the crossbar and gently bounced out. Later, Nate wove through four Horned Frog defenders and then passed the ball to Annie Zwahlen, whose shot was barely deflected by the TCU goal keeper as her fingertips barely grazed the ball enough to prevent the score.

The Cougars outshot the Frogs 11-2 in the first half, and 23-7 on the game, including a 12-4 advantage in shots on goal.

BYU again came out strong in the second half, as the scoring opportunities kept piling up, netting its first goal of the half in the opening eight minutes, as Carolyn Swenson sent a lob pass from the right corner to Charlene Lui. Lui took one dribble and then let the ball fly. It soared just over the fingertips of the TCU's goalie. The goal was Lui's second of the season.

Seven minutes minutes later, Brooke Thulin sent her characteristic flip-throw flying toward Rendich Beck, who collected the ball and tapped it past the goalie for her eighth goal of the season and second on the game.

After a handful of possible scoring opportunities, Zwahlen finally connected in the 77th minute. Heidi Dearborn kicked a pass up field in the to Whitney Feller, finding Zwahlen on a break away. Zwahlen faked her defender and then sent her shot toward the right corner of the net. The TCU goalkeeper deflected the shot, which hit the bottom of the cross bar and bounced in. The goal marked Zwahlen's second of the season.

"It was so fun," Zwahlen said. "I just love being out there. It's been awhile since I've scored, so it's nice to get that first goal of the season."

Rockwood was visibly pleased with BYU's team effort, as three different Cougars scored.

"It's been our motto all year," Rockwood said. "One of our strengths is that we can score from any position, and on any given night anyone can score."

The game was only the third meeting against TCU in school history, with BYU leading the series 3-0.

Next week the Cougars face Air Force on Thursday 7 p.m., and Wyoming on Saturday at 6 p.m.. Both games will be played at South Stadium.
