BYU womens soccer beat NC State in the Sweet 16 Saturday night 3-0 to secure their third Elite Eight appearance and first since 2012.

The Cougars wasted no time taking control of the match, and they were rewarded in 12th minute as Cameron Tucker put the Cougars up 1-0.

Then in the 34th minute, Josie Guinn would get the Cougars second when she cut onto her right foot in the penalty area and strike a beautiful shot into the far side netting.

BYU would take their 2-0 lead in half, allowing just one shot in the half while taking seven themselves.

Coming out of the halftime break, BYU wasted no time as Tucker added a third BYU goal in the 49th minute.

The Cougars would call upon Goalkeeper Sabrina Davis to preserve the shutout. Davis made several excellent saves in the half, including this excellent 1v1 save.

BYU awaits the winner of Stanford vs Penn State. A Penn State win gives BYU hosting privileges on Friday or Saturday.
