Willardson Viernes Leads Team In 1-1 Tie

Seattle, WA (Sept. 21, 2001) Jeni Willardson Viernes scored her first goal of the year in a 1-1 tie against the University of Washington Friday, at this year's Husky/Nike Invitational.

Willardson Viernes' goal came in the 52nd minute of the game when she drew the Huskies goalkeeper Hope Soloout of the box, dribbled around her and scored from 20 yards out.

"I couldn't be more proud of our team," said head coach Jennifer Rockwood."It's just disheartening that we couldn't pull off the win. We came together as a team and I thought Jeni Willardson Viernes played an outstanding game.She was as dangerous as I've ever seen her," added Rockwood.

The University of Washington kept their hopes alive on an unassisted goal by Cassie Giles with just six minutes left in regulation. Their only other scoring opportunities occurred shortly before the first half ended off of two straight corner kicks, but the Cougar defense kept them out of the net. BYU outshot Washington 19 to seven in the 120 minutes of action.

With the first tie of the 2001season, the 17th ranked Cougars record stands at 3-1-1, while the Huskies, ranked 11th nationally, go to 4-0-1 on the year.

In thesecond day of the invitational, it will be BYU against no. 4 Portland, followed by Washington against no. 14 Texas A&M. In Friday's earlier game, Portland defeated Texas A&M 2-1.
