In the field, Utah head soccer coach Rich Manning doesn't usually show off his emotions. On Friday, however, he did.

The coach's yells inspired a lackluster Utah team as they regrouped to beat Fresno State 2-0 to secure their third-straight win.

Ranked 14th in the NSCAA/Adidas top 25 poll, their highest all-time ranking, the Utes started on their four-game homestand in disappointing fashion. Utes goalie Ashley Mason came up with two brilliant saves to keep the game even at the half.

"In the first half, they were crowding the midfield," striker Melissa Wayman said. "In the second we played to a plan. We spread it out and focused on possession and distribution."

In the second minute of the second half, an Amanda Feigt cross found two Utes strikers in the box. An unmarked Wayman headed the ball into the goal.

In the 42nd minute, a free kick by Feight found Hailey Marsh in the open.

The Utes next face Colorado.

No. 18 BYU 3, No. 21 COLORADO 2: At Provo, the No. 18 BYU Women's team (4-0-0) took an early lead and fought hard to win an exciting game 3-2 against No. 21 Colorado (3-1-1) in front of 4,742 fans. BYU had three first-half goals before Colorado scored in the 49th minute. Colorado scored again with under a minute left, but the Cougars kept the ball away from the net after and came away with the win. BYU faces No. 22 Fresno State tonight at 7.
