BYU women”s soccer snagged another win on the road as they defeated the Weber State Wild Cats Tuesday night 2-0.
The Cougars outshot the Wild Cats 30-4, with goals scored by junior Jeni Willardson Viernes and senior Sarah Higham Yee.
Viernes scored on an assist by Kimmie Davis and Krissa Campbell. Davis and Campbell came off the bench to set up the quick score.
“We had some players come off the bench that really sparked us and got us through,” head coach Jennifer Rockwood said.
Rockwood also recognized sophomore Aydre Soffe as a key bench player.
The second score of the game by Yee in the second half of action was assisted by sophomore teammate Annie Hoecherl.
Rockwood said it was not BYU”s best showing of the year, and said the team will need to be more mentally prepared.
“I don”t think we were mentally ready to play this game. We just came off two big games and two days later we play Weber which is not as strong of a team,” Rockwood said.
“Sometimes it”s easy to get up for big games and not others but we need to be mentally prepared for every game so that is something we will have to work on,” Rockwood said.
Rockwood hopes the team will learn from their game against Weber so as to always be ready to play.
“I think we will learn from it. We are a solid team and we have things we need to work on but we will learn and get better as the season progresses,” Rockwood said.
BYU now prepares to host University of Arizona on Friday and Boston University on Saturday. Both games are scheduled for 7 p.m. at South Field.
