PROVO -- The BYU women's soccer team showed confidence and tenacity in its exhibition game Tuesday, as the Cougars defeated Dixie State, 4-0.

BYU gave the crowd of 875 a show, dominating on both ends of the field. The game started off with a burst of energy when Brooke Bowman pounded the ball up field to Jaime Rendich Beck. Beck passed it to Bobbi Tillotson, whose shot soared just past the goalkeeper's outstretch hands only 2:53 into the game.

The fun was just beginning.

With just under 30 minutes left in the first half, freshman Katie Larkin wove in and out of several Rebel defenders before finally kicking the ball into the back of the net. Then, less than a minute later, Beck caught a throw-in from Brooke Thulin to score the third goal of the game.

BYU started off strong in the second half with another goal by Tillotson off an assist from Thulin. The Cougars would not score again, although they continued to show offensive and defensive control.

BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood expects the same type of play throughout the rest of the season.

"It will be our goal all year to score early," Rockwood said. "We want to score in he first 15 minutes of each half. We were able to accomplish that tonight, which should be a good confidence builder."

The Cougars recorded 29 shots, including 11 shots on goal. Dixie State had no shots on goal.

BYU opens up its regular season this weekend with games in Honolulu on Aug. 27 and 29 against George Mason and Hawaii, respectively. The first home game is slated for Sept. 2 against Weber State. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. on the South Stadium field.
