The BYU Women’s Soccer team lost a low-scoring game to Long Beach State Sept. 22 by a score of 1-0.
An early goal proved to be the decider for the 49ers. In the 13th minute, Long Beach won a free kick and Mimi Rangel scored on the free kick. The Cougars had their chances but could not convert. Senior midfielder Cloee Colohan hit the crossbar early in the seventh minute. Freshman forward Ashley Hatch also had a couple shots on goal that couldn’t find the net.
The Cougars will return home and look to bounce back on Sept. 26. No. 14 Denver will come to South Field for a big match between top-15 teams.
