Cougars beat LMU 3-1 for Rockwood’s 400th career win


LOS ANGELES, Calif. — BYU women’s soccer head coach Jennifer Rockwood secured her 400th career win with BYU’s 3-1 victory over LMU Saturday afternoon on the road.

Rockwood, who has guided the BYU women’s soccer program since its inaugural season in 1995, is now 400-116-44. She is the 11th active NCAA Division I coach to reach 400 wins and 14th overall, and is fifth in Division I winning percentage. Rockwood is the first Division I soccer coach to reach 400 wins all with one school, BYU, her alma mater.

“Time sure flies, and I’ve been blessed,” Rockwood said. “I’ve had so many people help me get to where I am right now. I have an amazing staff and just an amazing group of girls. So, I couldn’t be happier.”

BYU has won three in a row and is now 4-2-0 on the season and 2-0-0 in West Coast Conference play, following another WCC win over the Lions. The Cougars were dominant throughout the game, outshooting LMU 19-5.

All-American Mikayla Colohan scored the first goal of the game off BYU’s first penalty kick of the season, in the 26th minute. The midfielder’s goal was her fourth of the season and 28th of her career.

A minute before halftime, UCLA transfer Brecken Mozingo scored the second goal to put BYU up 2-0 over the Lions. The goal was Mozingo's first as a Cougar, and was assisted by Rachel McCarthy and Josie Gelalich Guinn.

In the 59th minute, Rachel McCarthy scored BYU’s third goal of the game off an assist from Ashton Brockbank, while LMU remained scoreless.

LMU got on the board late in the game in the 78th minute after a goal by Abby Stewart. A BYU foul brought about a free kick for the Lions and led to the score, putting the game at 3-1. The Cougar defense held LMU from getting any late chances and closed things out to secure the win for Rockwood.

“I certainly appreciate LMU,” Rockwood said. “They came and congratulated me. So, a lot of class with LMU. I’ve been at BYU since I was 18-years-old and haven’t left. The administration that supported a young 25-year-old girl who just wanted to coach some soccer has been tremendous at helping me build a program.”

BYU will make its South Field debut, after playing two games at the Zions Bank Real Academy, for another WCC match against Santa Clara on Saturday, March 13 at 1 p.m. MST. The game will be broadcast live on BYUtv and on the radio on the BYU Sports Network.
