LAS VEGAS — Green grass, blue skies and a barrage of Cougar goals highlighted the BYU women’s soccer team’s 5-0 blanking of UNLV Saturday.

Rebel supporters found themselves outnumbered by a large contingency of Cougar fans, many of whom took the opportunity to watch the team compete while in town for the WCC basketball tournament.

“I think our team came out strong and did what we were working on in practice and performed like we wanted to,” sophomore goalie Hannah Clark said. “This is our third win of the season, so it gives us a little bit more momentum.”

Junior Michele Murphy scored twice to go along with goals from senior Marissa Nimmer, sophomore Nadia Gomes and junior Elena Medeiros.

“We’ve had a great spring thus far,” BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. “Last week I thought we played really well, and we knew we’d have a real strong opponent this weekend, and I think the girls were just prepared both mentally and physically to be better. I’m really pleased with how they played today.”

Next up the Cougars travel to Tempe for a match against Arizona State.
