PROVO -- No. 12 BYU (15-1-2, 4-1-1), who is only one of seven teams in the nation to have lost one or fewer games this season, drew even with San Diego State in California on Saturday. The only way the Aztecs were able to get passed the smothering BYU defense was through a disputed penalty kick.

"It's obviously disappointing we couldn't come out with the win," head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "But was a good battle. We played well today, but not well enough to get the win."

Aztec forward Amanda Swaider scored in the 21st minute after drawing a foul on goalkeeper Erika Woodbury that awarded her a penalty kick. The officials were divided on the call, as they struggled to agree whether or not the foul occurred in the box. Woodbury was able to stretch and slightly deflect the shot, but it wasn't enough as the ball scored to give SDSU a 1-0 lead. The goal marked only the second time this season that BYU has trailed.

Freshman Katie Larkin responded to the pressure, coming back 3 minutes later to net her fourth goal of the season. Larkin wove in and out of several Aztec defenders before firing her shot from eight yards out into the upper-left corner of the net.

The next 60 minutes of action remained scoreless, despite BYU outshooting SDSU 20-11, including 10-1 in shots on the goal. Larkin dominated the Aztecs with nine shots, six of which were on goal.

BYU returns to South Stadium Friday, facing cross-town rival Utah. Game time is slated for 7 p.m., and will be televised on BYUTV. Cougar fans are encouraged to come early, as Utah is expected to draw a large crowd.

"We'll be ready for Utah," Rockwood said. "We look forward to going home. We'll continue to work on our offense getting better looks on goal. Utah has a great defense, so we'll need to be prepared."
