Playing at South Field the #25th BYU women's soccer team shutout Pepperdine and Loyala Marymount this week and increased their WCC record to 3-1 on the year.

The 25th ranked BYU women's soccer team had a great week while winning both of their games and not allowing their opponents to score.  While beating WCC foes Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount, the Cougars increased their record to 9-4-1 and 3-1 in the WCC. Pepperdine dropped to 6-5-2 (1-2 WCC) and LMU dropped to 3-12-0 (0-4 WCC) and lost their 11th straight game.  The two shutouts gave BYU their third shutout in the past four games.

Pepperdine 1-0

On Thursday the Cougars dominated the game on both offense and defense, but could only muster one goal in the 83rd minute.  Erica Owens only needed to save three shot attempts while the cougars put up 22.  Finally in the 83rd minute Niki Fernandes broke the scoreless tie and put Pepperdine away.  In the second half, the Cougar defense only allowed one shot.

Loyola Marymount 2-0

Saturday's game at South Field was similar to the Pepperdine game where the Cougars dominated both sides of the ball and still struggled to put the ball in the net.  The teams stayed scoreless in the first half as each goalkeeper was testing early but both held their ground.  In the second half, the Cougars took 17 shots and converted their first in the 59th minute when Cloee Colohan finished on a cross that was assisted by Rachel manning and Ashley Hatch.  In the 71st minute BYU put their second goal on the board when Ella Johnson headed the corner kick from Marissa Nimmer into the right corner of the goal.

Next Game

BYU travels to face Gonzaga on Oct. 24th at 4pm MDT and then to #5 Portland on Oct 26th at 8pm MDT.  The Saturday game will be shown live on TheW.tv.
