ATHENS -- Two sophomores scored as No. 20 BYU (3-0) upset 15th-ranked Georgia (2-1), 2-0, Friday evening in Athens, forcing the Bulldogs to give up their first two goals of the season.

"We don't talk a lot about rankings, but we knew they were an extremely talented team that is certainly on their way up," head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "We knew how important this game was, and it turned out to be a great battle between two very good teams. Things are definitely going well for us."

BYU took a 1-0 advantage in the 36th minute when Katie Larkin took a shot off Bobbi Tillotson's corner kick, and Alyssa Vander Veur deflected the ball past Georgia's keeper.

The second goal came in the 63rd minute from Katie Fellows as she took advantage of a breakdown in the Bulldog defense and put away a shot from just inside the penalty box.

BYU did a good job controlling the midfield, not allowing Georgia to get numbers forward and only giving up three Bulldog shots on goal.

"Our defense was unbelievable tonight," Rockwood said. "They were a talented team with some very skilled forwards, but we kept them away from our goal. I was very proud of our team."

The Cougars outshot Georgia 15-13 in total shots and 5-3 in shots on goal. Corner kicks went in the Bulldogs' favor, as did fouls, 8-7.

BYU returns to South Stadium Friday and Saturday with games against Colorado and Fresno State, respectively. Game times are slated for 7 p.m. Friday's game will be televised live on BYUTV.
