The BYU soccer team fell to perennial Southwest division powerhouse FC Tucson Friday by a score of 3-0. The loss takes the Cougars out of playoff contention with just two games left to play.
FC Tucson started the game aggressively, blasting 14 first-half shots compared to only 5 from the Cougars.
Midfielder James Cohn headed in the game’s first goal on a service from midfielder Carlos Montes in the 35th minute. Tuscon came out firing after halftime as well, and Montes quickly netted two more goals in the 46th and 49th minutes.
The Cougars took 11 second-half shots as they scrambled to get back into the game, but Tucson’s overwhelming lead was too much to overcome.
The Cougars will return to Provo to prepare for the season’s final two matches. BYU will travel to California to square off against the division-leading Ventura County Fusion on Friday before finishing out the season against the Orange County Blue Star on Saturday, July 14.
