Women's Soccer Scores Another Conference Win, Blank Air Force 4-0

COLORADO SPRINGS -- A dominating first-half performance helped the 15th-ranked BYU women's soccer team beat Air Force, 4-0, Thursday afternoon. The win helped BYU remain unbeaten in conference play.

Four different Cougars scored goals as BYU dominated first-half action. Senior midfielder Sara Reading got the scoring started with a goal at the 9:23 mark. Just eight minutes later, freshman Aleisha Cramer increased the Cougar lead to 2-0. Michelle Peterson scored her team-leading 16th goal of the season on an assist from Staci Reynolds to push the lead to 3-0. Lydia Ojuka capped the first-half scoring and put BYU up 4-0 with an unassisted goal in the 35th minute of play.

"We played really well in the first half," said BYU coach Jennifer Rockwood. "We got some real good goals."

Air Force played a strong and physical second half, but were unable to get any shots past the BYU goalkeeper. Goalkeepers Jennifer Waldron and Kylee Dickson combined to hold the Falcons scoreless. The shutout is the third straight for the Cougar defense.

"In the second half we came out flat, without a lot of confidence and with no momentum," Rockwood said. "I credit Air Force for staying in the game, especially in the second half. It was a very physical game."

The win moves the Cougars to 13-3-1, 5-0 on the season while Air Force falls to 3-12-1, 1-3. BYU will finish conference play at Wyoming on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 1 p.m. If the Cougars beat Wyoming, it would mark the first time in BYU soccer history that a team went undefeated in conference play.
