TUCSON -- After a scoreless 85 minutes of play on Saturday, No. 18 BYU found its winning goal with only five minutes left in a 1-0 victory over Arizona.

"It was a tremendous team effort offensively and defensively," said head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "Kassidy showed great composure with her opportunity in front of the goal."

Senior Kassidy Christensen-Shumway entered the game in the second half and found the back of the net with five minutes left to play. A pass from teammate Carlee Payne put the ball in Shumway’s possession right in front of the net where she was able to get it past the Arizona goalie. Payne now leads the team with three assists this season.

The Cougars ended the game with 14 shots compared to Arizona’s eight. BYU’s Jessica Ringwood and Alyssa Vander Veur led with three shots each.

Nine Cougar players took at least one shot against Arizona compared to the four players from Arizona who took shots.

BYU now holds an overall 8-1-1 record against Arizona.

This is BYU’s third shutout win of the season. Sophomore goalie McKinzie Olson has now played every minute of every game for the Cougars this year.

Many attempts on goal were made by the Wildcats but any offensive efforts were halted by the Cougar defense led by Senior Hermann Trophy Candidate Andrea Willis. Willis ended the game with two shots of her own and helped the Cougars defense to only allow eight shots from the Wildcats.

"We're anxious to return home to play at South Field next week," Rockwood said.

The Cougars (6-2-1) are now on a three-game winning streak as they return home next week to play at South Field on Wednesday against Southern Utah and Saturday against Utah State.
