PROVO -- In front of a record crowd at South Stadium the BYU women's soccer team upset No. 7 Tennessee 1-0 thanks to a late goal from freshman Annie Zwahlen in the 78th minute.

Defense was a major factor in the game as BYU held Hermann Trophy candidate junior Keeley Dowling and senior Rhian Wilkinson, a Canadian National Team member who scored for the Canadians Thursday against Mexico, scoreless with only three shots.

"Our defense was amazing tonight," said BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood. "Nicole (Jensen) was marked to cover Rhian and did great shutting her down."

The game-winning goal came with the game winding down when senior Aleisha Rose, also a Hermann Trophy candidate, passed the ball from 18 yards out to Zwahlen who headed the ball into the right side of the net. The goal gave the Cougars the win over Tennessee, the second highest ranked team the Cougars have ever beaten, as well as their second win of the season.

"I can't even explain the feeling that I have," said Zwahlen. "As a forward I know my responsibility is to score, so when Aleisha gave me a good ball I just did what I could to get it in." Zwahlen's game winning goal was also her first career goal as a Cougar.

"Annie put in a great shot," said Rockwood, "This was a great win for our program."

For the second time in three games BYU managed to break the attendance record at South Stadium, this time packing in 2,758 fans. The previous record of 2,191 was set last week against No. 17 Michigan.

The Cougars are home for their final game before heading to the Kentucky Tournament next weekend as they host Southern Utah University (0-3-0) on Monday, Sept. 8 at 5:00 p.m. (MDT).
