For the second year in a row the BYU women's soccer team takes home a share of the WCC conference title. Portland and Santa Clara also earned a share of the 2013 title.

The 19th ranked women's soccer team won their last two games of the regular season to tie for the 2013 WCC conference title. Portland and Santa Clara share the title with BYU who has now won a share for the second straight year. With wins over Pacific and Saint Mary's the Cougars end the regular season on a seven game win streak and look to continue playing in the NCAA Tournament. With a 14-4-1 (8-1-0) record, the Cougars will host in-state opponent Weber State on Friday night. Weber State ended the season 10-4-5.

Pacific

Needing a win to stay in the WCC conference race, the Cougars gave up a goal to Pacific in the opening minutes. Already down by one, the Cougars attacked and were rewarded in the 12th minute. With a cross pass from Ashley Hatch, Cloee Colohan dove and kicked the ball into the net. Another first half goal was waived off due to a foul in the box leaving the score 1-1 at halftime.

BYU followed the pattern set by Pacific by scoring in the first minute of the second half. With a free kick from close to midfield, Colohan kicked the ball into the box and Colette Jepson Smith headed the ball in the net for the 2-1 lead. Hatch then scored the final goal of the game in the 83rd minute when she headed an Ella Johnson pass between the legs of the goalie to finalize the scoring at 3-1.

Saint Mary's

With the WCC Championship on the line, the Cougars again gave up an early goal when Briana Campos scored in the seventh minute to put Saint Mary's up 1-0. Again in the 12th minute, BYU tied the game with a goal when Niki Fernandes headed a ball past the goalie after receiving a headed pass from Hatch. In the 25th minute Jepson-Smith passed to Colohan who slipped it past the goalie for a 2-1 lead. Just minutes later the Cougars would take a 3-1 lead on a rebound goal by Sarah Chambers.

Coming out of the half with a 3-1 lead the Cougars continued to be aggressive and scored again in the 58th minute when Hatch scored from just outside the box on a Marissa Nimmer assist. In the 67th minute BYU made the score 5-1 when Rachel Manning scored of a Fernandes corner kick. Kyleigh Royall finished up the scoring after a cross pass from Angelica Dickson Adam. On Senior night, four of the six goals were scored by seniors.

BYU will host Weber State on Friday, November 15th at South Field in the first-round of the NCAA tournament. The game will be at 5pm MST and will be broadcast on BYUtv.
