Rare Home Loss for Cougars, Falling 2-0 to Kentucky

PROVO -- In a rare home loss, the BYU women's soccer team fell 2-0 to Kentucky Friday night. It is only the ninth home loss in eight years for the Cougars.

"We really struggled to get things going at the beginning of the game," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "We've opened the season with three tough teams, and the last two have out-pressured us."

The Wildcats scored their first goal in the 15th minute when a misdirected header by a Cougar ended up under the control of Kentucky midfielder Elizabeth Ramsey. The Wildcat junior fired a shot into the right bottom corner of the net, deflecting off keeper Mandy Gott's hands. That would end the scoring for the half, with the shots even at four apiece for each team.

Ramsey again found the net at 56:43 off a penalty shot placed in the upper right-hand corner of the net, giving her a team-high three goals on the season.

Cougar Krissa Campbell paced BYU with three shots on goal. One came in the 60th minute which was blocked over the top of the net by the out-stretched hands of Kentucky goalkeeper Liz Butler.

Another came a short time later when Campbell's shot was partially blocked at the last second by a Kentucky defender and ended up in Butler's cradled arms. Butler ended the night with two saves, compared to Gott's five.

The Cougars play again at home tomorrow night at 7 p.m. against Northwestern University.

BYU found energy off the bench in Kelly Hunsberger and Twink Krainik, both of whom had two shots on the night.
