Penalty Kick Lifts Cougars Over Lobos

Albuquerque, NM -- Just two minutes into the first sudden death overtime period, forward Jaime Rendich's penalty kick gave BYU's women's soccer team a 1-0 league victory over New Mexico, on Saturday.

Rendich, the team's leading scorer picked up her ninth goal of the season to give the Cougars a 2-1-2 record in the MWC and 6-9-4 overall.

Both league teams played evenly during the first half of play with the visiting Cougars taking in a two-shot advantage nine to seven after the first 45 minutes of action.

"We played very well today especially in the first half, which is something we've been struggling with all year. "The opportunities to score were there, we just can't buy a goal. Hopefully this win is a positive thing for the team and will help them confidence."

In the second half, BYU continued with a strong offensive presence but could not get the ball in the net forcing the eighth overtime game of the season and the fourth in conference play for the Cougars.

The final league game of the year for BYU is at Utah on Sat., Oct. 30 at 1 p.m., before hosting the MWC Championships at South Stadium beginning Wednesday, Nov. 3.
