Senior Helps BYU Defeat UNLV in 1-0 Shutout

The last home game of the season thrilled all 1,421 in attendence as BYU picked up its third consecutive shutout in a 1-0 win over UNLV Saturday at South Stadium.

After a brief introduction honoring BYU's seniors, the game started with high energy coming from both squads. Several Cougars had shots on goal but ended the half tied 0-0. BYU had a 4-3 shot advantage over UNLV in the first half.

BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood said she told the team at halftime to settle down and connect with each other better.

The next scoring opportunity the Cougars had came with 31 minutes left in regulation after sophomore Bobbi Tillotson crossed the ball to senior Krissa Reinbold whose shot bounced off the top of the crossbar. Reinbold came back with 13 minutes reamaining in regulation and provided the lone goal of the game when she received a pass across the middle from freshman Natalie Nate. Reinbold took a few dribbles, drew out the UNLV goalkeeper Jenna Huff, and took a shot over Huff that found the back of the net for her second goal of the season.

The Cougar defense battled all night holding UNLV to just six shots in the game for its third consecutive shutout. Freshman goalkeeper Erika Woodbury finished with four saves and teamed with sophomore Claire Thomas for another shutout, the sixth of the season.

"The defense played big for us tonight and got another shutout against a good team," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "This is a big win for us; hopefully this is a good confidence boost for the team."

Prior to the start of the game, BYU's three seniors, Krissa Reinbold, Kimmie Martins and Mandy Gott were honored and the ceremony may have provided extra motivation for the Cougars.

"We started connecting a lot more and we kept fighting until we got one in," said senior forward Krissa Reinbold. "This win has opened the door for us to win the conference."

BYU improves to 5-7-3 and hits the road for a five game road trip, four of which are against Mountain West Conference teams. The next game is Thursday Oct. 14 in Austin, Texas at 6 p.m. against a talented University of Texas team. Conference play continues Saturday Oct. 16 in Colorado Springs, Co. against Air Force.
