SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team (7-10-0, 3-3-0 WCC) dropped a 4-1 West Coast Conference match to No. 5 Brigham Young University (15-1-1, 4-0-1 WCC) Thursday evening at Torero Stadium.
The Cougars wasted no time in scoring, as Jaiden Thornack was able to break away from the Torero defense, and had a one-on-one with the USD 'keeper, as she put the ball into the lower right corner to give BYU the early 1-0 advantage in the fourth minute of action.
BYU then doubled its lead in the seventh minute, when Cloee Colohan hit a one-timer off a cross from Jessica Ringwood to give BYU a 2-0 advantage.
After BYU took a 3-0 lead on Colohan's second goal of the match in the 65th minute, San Diego was able to spoil the shutout in the 72nd minute of action. Junior forward Emily Dillon was able to break loose near the Cougars goal box, and sent a cross into a crowded goal box. Senior midfielder Mariah Hobbs then corralled the pass and eased the ball into the back of the net to move the score to 3-1.
BYU could cap the scoring for the day in the 78th minute of action, as Dana O. Cusick scored an unassisted goal, to put the match at its final of 4-1.
USD was out shot 23-10, but the Toreros held a 6-5 advantage in corner kicks.
McKenna Tollack was saddled with the loss in goal for the Toreros, as she allowed four goals and recorded nine saves. BYU's Erica Owens was credited with the win, as she allowed one goal and recorded two saves.
The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they head to the Bay Area to take on No. 14 Santa Clara University in a 2 p.m. WCC match.
