The BYU women's soccer team will play its final game of the regular season this Saturday, Nov. 5, against Saint Mary's College in California at 1 p.m. PT.
The Cougars and Gaels have met just one time before, nine years ago, but never on Saint Mary's field. In 2002, BYU took the 2-1 victory in double overtime.
A 10-5-3 overall record, and 4-2-1 conference record, is traveling with the Cougars this weekend. Senior Jennie Marshall leads the offense with six goals and teammate Colette Jepson's 55 shots are a team-high. At least one goal has been scored this season by 12 different players on BYU's roster and nine players are recording shots in double-figures.
Senior goalkeeper McKinzie Olson again increased her lead as BYU's all-time career saves leader after BYU's most recent game with a total of 274 in her four years.
The Gaels are running on a 10-7-2 overall record and 1-5-1 conference record with Jordan Marada's nine goals leading her team and the West Coast Conference. Marada is one of 10 players on SMC's roster with at least one goal in the stat books for the season.
Saint Mary's won its most recent game against San Francisco 1-0 to end a 5-game losing streak and, as this game against the Cougars will also be its last game of the regular season, will be Senior Day. The Gaels have two seniors on this year's squad in Alyssa Stearns and Ashley Soro.
