Cougars fall at Long Beach

The No. 11 BYU women's soccer team fell 1-0 on the road to Long Beach State on Saturday night. 
The 49ers (5-3-0) scored off a free kick in the 13th minute to take the lead. BYU goalkeeper Erica Owens was drawn out of the box and collided with Eileen Maes to give the 49ers the free kick. Long Beach's Mimi Rangel chipped the ball over the wall and into the net for the gamewinning goal.
The loss is the first on the road for the Cougars (5-2-1) this season. 
BYU started the game earning chances. Cloee Colohan hit the crossbar in the seventh minute and had a shot on goal in the 10th. Ashley Hatch had two shots on goal in the second half for BYU, but nothing came of their offensive chances.
The Cougars will host No. 14 Denver on Thursday at 7 p.m. on South Field.

BYU preps for Oklahoma, Long Beach State


The BYU women's soccer team will have two games this week to recover from a home loss to UC Irvine over the weekend. The Cougars (4-1-1) will host Oklahoma on Thursday at 7 p.m. on South Field before traveling to Long Beach State on Saturday at 8 p.m.

The Cougars played Oregon on the road to a scoreless draw last Thursday before falling 1-0 to UC Irvine on a last-minute goal.

Oklahoma (3-5-0) split its two home games last weekend. The Sooners beat Oral Roberts 1-0, but fell to North Texas 5-0. This is Oklahoma's last weekend before Big 12 conference play begins. The Sooners were picked to finish eighth in the conference.

Long Beach State (4-3-0) took on two SEC opponents last weekend on the road. The 49ers lost to Georgia 1-0 and beat Auburn 2-1 in overtime. The 49ers were picked to finish second in the Big West, behind Cal State Fullerton and tied with UC Irvine.
