Women’s soccer returns home for final two games


The No. 20 BYU women’s soccer team returns home this week to the comfort of South Field for its final two games of West Coast Conference play.

The Cougars are riding a five-game winning streak and have continued to dominate opposing teams. All five games during the win streak have been shutouts and have recorded six shutouts in the last seven games.

BYU seems to be playing its best soccer at the right time as the NCAA tournament quickly approaches. Seeds will be assigned Monday, Nov. 11.

This week’s games against Pacific and Saint Mary’s will give the Cougars an opportunity to go into the tournament on a seven-game win streak. The team will look to continue to build momentum heading into the tournament, where it will look to match last year’s success.

Pacific is coming off a 3-2 victory over Gonzaga, and Saint Mary’s last played Portland, losing 3-1. BYU seniors will be honored for Senior Day on Saturday. Coach Jennifer Rockwood will also be honored for eclipsing the 300 wins mark. Thursday’s game versus Pacific will be at 7 p.m., and Saturday’s game is at 1 p.m.
