BYU vs. Pepperdine Box Score

Pepperdine’s (8-6-1, 3-1-1 WCC) first shot of the game caught the BYU (8-4-1, 3-1-0 WCC) defense on its heels in the 2nd minute when a shot was taken by Michelle Maemoune outside the 18-yard box and the ball bounced off the far-right post and into the back of the net for an early 1-0 advantage.

After one half, the Cougars had tallied nine shots and seven on goal compared to the Waves seven and three on frame.

In the 47th minute, Pepperdine was awarded a penalty kick, but Sabrina Macias Davis dove to the left and stopped the shot to keep the Waves from extending the lead.
