Game against Broncos ends in tie


The BYU women’s soccer team added a tie to its record after an aggressive 110 minutes of play that resulted in a 0-0 score.

The first half proved to be a challenge for the Cougars, who weren’t able to create any opportunities for shots on goal. Going into halftime, Santa Clara had out shot BYU 8-0.

However, the Cougars came out ready to play during the second half, firing off seven shots. BYU came close to putting the ball into the net when sophomore midfielder Kyleigh Royall laid out for a header that Santa Clara’s keeper had to dive for to save. The keeper fumbled the ball, but it was quickly cleared by the Broncos’ defense.

With the score still sitting at 0-0, the two teams headed into overtime. Both teams only took one shot during the first period of overtime, which resulted in no goals and a second period of overtime.

With only minutes remaining in double overtime, BYU was awarded a free kick that was taken by junior defender Lindsi Lisonbee. However, the kick went over Santa Clara’s net, and the game ended in a tie — with no goals scored.
