First shutout of 2012 comes at Arizona

Image

TUCSON, Ariz. - The BYU women's soccer team recorded its first shutout of 2012 in a 1-0 victory at Arizona, Thursday. 

Sophomore Jaiden Thornock got her second-straight gamewinner with a goal against the Wildcats after just 2:47 of play to give the Cougars their 1-0 lead.

Thornock's goal was the earliest scored by BYU since 2010 when Lindsi Lisonbee Cutshall netted a goal against Marquette after just 1:12 of play. 

BYU has now shutout Arizona in its last five meetings and has a 10-1-1 all-time record against them. 

BYU took 15 shots compared to the Wildcats' 12 in the game. Five different players led BYU by recording two shots while Arizona's Jazmin Ponce and Ana-Maria Montoya led their team with five shots apiece. The Cougars led the offensive attack in the first half, taking six shots to Arizona's three, but the Wildcats amped up their own attack in the second and the teams tied nine shots to nine.

Junior Erica Owens recorded a career-high five saves for BYU in the victory.

The Cougars continue their Pac-12 road swing on Saturday, Aug. 25, at instate rival Utah. Kick off is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. MT.

Pair of Pac-12 road games this week

Image

PROVO, Utah - The BYU women's soccer team will play a pair of Pac-12 road games this week beginning on Thursday, Aug. 23, at Arizona at 7 p.m. PT and ending on Saturday, Aug. 25, at in-state rival Utah at 1 p.m. MT.

BYU returns seven starters in 2011 All-American and Hermann Trophy Candidate Lindsi Lisonbee Cutshall, Scholar All-American Carlee Payne Holmoe, seniors Jessica Ringwood, Ashley Bazzarone and Dana Oldroyd Cusick, and juniors Rachel Manning and Niki Fernandes.

The Cougars are coming off a 3-2 overtime victory at UC Irvine last Friday with goals from Fernandes, freshman Michelle Murphy and sophomore Jaiden Thornock.

Arizona is coming off a 2-1 season-opening loss to then-No. 18 Long Beach State, a team BYU will play on Aug. 30 at home. The Cougars and Wildcats have met 11 times before with BYU leading the series 9-1-1.

The Wildcats were picked to finish in last place in the 2012 Pac-12 Preseason Poll after tough 2010 and 2011 seasons. They return all seven goal scorers in juniors Jazmin Ponce, Ana-Maria Montoya, Susana Melendez and Jessica Culver, sophomores LeeAndra Smith and Brie DeFelice, and senior Alex Smith. Montoya recently returned from playing for team Colombia in the Olympics.

Fans can follow Thursday's game against Arizona through a live stats link available on the Wildcats' schedule page

The Utah Utes dropped their season opener to Utah State in a 1-0 decision and will play one more game, against Southern Utah, before meeting BYU on Saturday. The Cougars and Utes have a long tradition of soccer between them. BYU leads the overall series 18-5-1.

In 2010 the Utes finished 10-10-2 but were able to turn things around just a bit in 2011. After a tough start, the team went 6-5-0 in league play and finished in fifth place. This season, they’ve been chosen to finish eighth in the 2012 Preseason Poll with top returning scorers McKel Wall and Harley Spier leading the attack.

Saturday's game against Utah can be followed online through Gametracker and is being shown live on Pac-12 Television. Live radio is also available through BYU Radio
