SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team (10-8-0, 3-4-0) fell to the 20th ranked BYU Cougars (12-4-1, 6-1-0) 1-0 on the road Friday evening.
The Toreros had their backs against the wall for the entire match, but managed to keep the Cougars from finding the back of the net until the 79th minute.
The Cougars entered the match having shutout their last four opponents and their defense proved to be stout once again, holding the Toreros to just one shot on goal; the Cougars had ten.
The Toreros lone shot on goal came from Kelley McCloskey, who was excellent on the defensive end all evening, in the 11th minute.
The Cougars scored the game-winner in the 79th minute after a long-range shot from Ashley Hatch bounced off the crossbar to Marissa Nimmer, who was able to control the ball and tap it past Michelle Craft.
Craft, the Toreros sophomore goalkeeper, had a terrific night recording ten saves. However, she was saddled with the loss, bringing her record to 10-8-0. Cougars' goalkeeper Erica Owens, who had one save, recorded her fifth consecutive shutout and earned the win.
The Cougars, who were coming off a 1-0 road win against No. 6 Portland, outshot the Toreros 25-5 and attempted seven corners to USD's four.
The Toreros will return to action next week at home when they host Saint Mary's on Thursday for a 7:00 p.m. match.
