SOCCER: For the second game in a row, BYU freshman Kassidy Christensen scored a game-winning goal as the Cougars (13-2-2, 3-2-0) topped Wyoming (7-9-0, 2-3-0) 1-0 on Thursday in Laramie, Wyo.
The Cougars outshot the Cowgirls 26-10, including 19 shots in the second half. BYU put 12 shots on goal to Wyoming's three. Sophomore Kelsea Kakadelas took five shots with four on goal, but it was Christensen who netted the only score of the game with five minutes left in regulation. It was her sixth of the season and third game-winner.
BYU will host New Mexico on Saturday at 7 p.m. at South Stadium in Provo. It will be the last home match for the team before hosting the Mountain West Conference tournament Nov. 7-10.
SOCCER: At Ogden, patience paid off for the Wildcats in a big way on Thursday when Teresa Holt's header broke a 0-0 tie to defeat Eastern Washington 1-0 in double overtime at Wildcat Soccer Field.
The Wildcats generated plenty of scoring chances throughout the match but were unable to break through until only 1:33 remained in the fourth and final period. Weber State outshot the Eagles 35 to 12 but needed the clutch set-play goal to grab a much-needed three points.
