On a Roll: Cougars Upset No. 23 Notre Dame for Their Seventh-Straight Win

SOUTH BEND -- Aleisha Cramer-Rose's deadly accuracy found its mark again Saturday night as the junior All-American knocked in a penalty kick in the 79th minute to give BYU (10-5-0, 2-0-0) a 3-2 upset over No. 23 Notre Dame in South Bend. With the win, the Cougars extend their winning streak to seven games and finish their six-game road trip a perfect 6-0.

"This is one of the bigger road wins for us in the last couple of years," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "Notre Dame is one of the better teams we have faced all year."

Rose's penalty kick found the lower left corner of the net, breaking a 2-2 tie that had stood for nearly 40 minutes.

The Fighting Irish continually attacked BYU's defense, and Rockwood credited junior defender Annie Hocherl's play as a key factor in the Cougar's win.

"Annie Hoecherl was the player of the game, she did a great job defensively and our defense didn't back down," Rockwood said.

Offensively, Jennifer Henry-Fielding sparked the Cougars, scoring two key goals to put BYU up 2-1 at the end of the first half.

"Jennifer's first goal was one of the most beautiful goals I have ever seen a Cougar make," Rockwood said. "She placed it perfectly and the keeper didn't have a chance."

After Notre Dame got on the board first with a goal by sophomore Candace Chapman at 6:28, the Cougars evened the score six minutes later on Fielding's crossing shot from the right wing into the left side of the net.

BYU then took a 2-1 lead in the 30th minute when junior Annie Hoecherl centered the ball from the right side of the box to Fielding who again found the net for her second goal of the game.

Notre Dame answered in the second half when a 25-yard kick from freshman Katie Thorlakson went through the hands of Cougars keeper Mandy Gott, tying the game at 2-2 in the 52nd minute. Rose then hit the game-winning penalty kick at 79:29.

The Cougars return home to face UNLV in the first of three-straight home games, a welcome respite after playing seven of their last eight games on the road. The two conference foes will square off Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in Provo.
