PROVO, Utah - The No. 11 Long Beach State women's soccer team suffered its first loss of the season falling to BYU, 1-0 on Thursday evening at South Field in Provo.
BYU scored the game's only goal on a penalty kick that came in the 81st minute. LBSU's Jordan Nelson was called for a foul inside the box that enabled Carlee Holmoe to score on 49er goalkeeper Marrina Meyers.
For the first 45 minutes, both teams would battle it out with several scoring opportunities on both ends. Senior Nadia Link and sophomore Ashley Roese came close to finding the back of the net in the first half for the 49ers.
In the second half, LBSU's best chance of scoring came in the 69th minute, when senior Nadia Link received a pass from sophomore Taylor Nelson on a breakaway play, shooting the ball from eight yards out just passing the far right post.
The 49ers recorded four shots in the second half, while the Cougars (3-1) collected 11 shots, four on goal.
Meyers made six saves for the game, suffering her first loss of the year.
"BYU is a very tough place to play," 49er head coach Mauricio Ingrassia said. "I'm proud of my team for their effort. It felt like we were going to get one in the second half. We had the two one-on-ones that we unfortunately couldn't convert. But I think in the end, we made a mistake in the back and it cost us."
LBSU returns to action this Sunday evening at 6 p.m., hosting the University of Michigan.
