Cougars End Soccer Season With NCAA Loss
Salt Lake Tribune 14Nov99 S3
BYU's women's soccer team ended their season on Saturday with a loss to
The Broncos took just four shots on goal during the game, but two of
those shots, both by Mandy Clements, got into BYU's net. The Broncos
dominated the game.
The Cougars finished the season 21-4, and ranked in the top 25. "We need
to remember that we're still a young team, this being our fifth season
and third straight NCAA appearance," said BYU Coach Jennifer Rockwood.
The loss saves the NCAA from the threat of BYU reaching the final, which
is scheduled to be played on a Sunday. The NCAA had tried to keep BYU
out of the tournament because of the possibility. BYU's coaches speculated
that the reason they faced Santa Clara so early in the competition was so
that they would be eliminated early.
