No. 5 Cougars look to extend streaks against Pacific
PROVO, Utah – No. 5 BYU women’s soccer hosts Pacific Saturday as it looks to continue West Coast Conference play undefeated and to keep its home winning and shutout streak alive.
The Cougars (11-1-1, 3-0-0) have won 13 straight home games dating back to last year and have a 14-game home conference unbeaten streak dating back to 2012. BYU hasn’t allowed a goal at home this season and dating back to last season haven’t allowed a goal in the last seven games at South Field.
On Saturday, BYU faces Pacific at 7 p.m. MDT on South Field. The game will be broadcast live on BYUtv and can be heard on the Cougar IMG Sports Network, ESPN 960 AM, BYU Radio and Sirius XM 143.
The Cougars defeated San Diego 1-0 last Friday to improve to 3-0-0 in WCC play this season. BYU set team records for shots (49) and corner kicks (19) while Sarah Chambers Gardner scored the game winner off a corner kick in the 83rd minute.
The Tigers (2-9-1, 1-3-0) have only scored six goals so far this year, but put two in the back of the net against Gonzaga last weekend in a 2-1 victory before falling to Portland 4-0. Pacific’s win came against Sacramento State and they tied UC Davis 0-0. The Tigers are 0-5-0 away from home this season.
Don’t forget that families can attend games for $15 and groups, wards or teams can attend for $20. Teams are limited to three coaches and must bring a roster of players.
The Cougars took the field for the first time of the 2023 season Saturday night for the annual Blue vs White game.…
