BYU lacrosse continued its winning streak by blowing through Utah State at home Saturday afternoon.
The Cougars have scored 43 goals in their first four games and have only allowed 23. Saturday the team managed to score 27 goals against the Aggies and only allowed one goal to slip through the tight defense. The total of seventy goals in five games is an impressive number that is averaging the team 14 goals a game and allowing less than five goals against them per game.
Senior captain Pat Matheson set the pace of the game early by scoring in the fitrst minute of play. However, more than a dozen players contributed to the final score and eight players scored two goals or more. Sophmore midfielder Zach Jordan scored a hattrick and assisted a goal while sophmore attackman Mike Fabrizio continued his assault by scoring five goals and assisting four.
“We played really well and we definitely achieved our goals we set before the game,” senior captain Mickell Walker said in a news release. “Our defense did really good at only letting one goal in, and the score tells how good our offense played.”
By the end of the game all of BYU’s players touched the field and participated in the big win for the Cougars.
“We set some goals before the game and we accomplished all of them,” BYU coach Matt Schneck said. “We are happy that everyone had a chance to play, and everyone did what they were supposed to do. Everything we had set in place we were able to accomplish.”
BYU continues at home next week when it faces New Mexico Saturday at 4:00 p.m.
