BYU Women's Soccer wins season opener against Washington State

The Lady Cougs win a defensive battle to start the season

MLS: Portland Timbers at Sporting KC Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

They're back! BYU Women's Soccer season is officially underway as game one on the road against Washington State is in the books. It took two overtime periods to do it, but BYU was able to come out victorious 2-1.

It did not come easy for the Lady Cougs as the game was a defensive battle all night. Washington State scored first and led at halftime 1-0. It was not until the 77th minute when Ashley Hatch gave BYU their first goal of the season to tie it at 1 apiece.

The game went back and forth from there until the second overtime when Ashley Hatch delivered again to give BYU the victory.

BYU is currently ranked 16 in the nation and returns all 11 starters from last year. In other words, this squad should be legit.

The Lady Cougs’ first home game is this Monday the 22nd at 7:30 PM MDT against Nebraska.

Don't miss out.
