[MONDAY ACTION] Katie Larkin's goal with 15 minutes remaining gave BYU a 1-0 victory over Pacific -- the third time in six games the Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25, have won, 1-0, on a Larkin goal.

The junior's goal was her fourth game-winning goal for BYU, which is 5-0-1. Goalie Erika Woodbury, BYU's career shutout record holder, has yet to concede a goal this season and leads the nation with a 0.00 goals-against average after six starts.

"Pacific is a great team and they really came out quick," BYU coach Jennifer Rockwood said. "Andrea Willis and Jessica Harmon-Carter are tough to get past, though, let alone Woodbury. We really have to attribute our success to our overall team defense."

Pacific frustrated the BYU attack, which launched 20 shots. It didn't look like it was going to be BYU's evening when Katie Fellows hit a header off the crossbar and had two other headers miss by only a few feet minutes part in the second half.

An unmarked Larkin finally decided the issue with a goal after being fed by Carolyn Swenson.

"It felt so good," Larkin said. "We held our breath for a bit, but it was nice to knock it in and take a little pressure off for the last part of the game."
