PROVO -- Having competed in six games without giving up a single goal this season, the No. 16 BYU women's soccer team will face in-state-rival Weber State on Wednesday at 3 p.m. in Ogden and try to keep the streak in tact.

The Cougars are 5-0-1 on the season, and are lead offensively by Hermann Trophy candidate Katie Larkin who has scored four goals on the year. On defense, fellow Hermann Trophy candidate Jessica Harmon-Carter has kept opponents from getting clear shots on goal the entire season. Together, Larkin and Harmon-Carter each received Mountain West Conference Player-of-the-Week accolades this week for their performances.

The Wildcats are 3-2 on the season and beat Boise State 3-0 in their last game. Weber State midfielder Kelsie Ehlers was named Offensive Player of the Week in the Big Sky conference last week due to her three assists, all on throw-ins, against Utah State and Boise State.

The Cougars will return home to face Cal Poly in BYU's third game of the week on Saturday at 7 p.m. at South Stadium in Provo.
