Scary moment in Provo

BYU's shutout string ended at 849 scoreless minutes, but the Cougars, ranked No. 17 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25, recovered to beat visiting Washington, 2-1.

The Cougars entered the game as the only team in the country that had not surrendered a goal, but UW senior Dani Bridges scored the first score allowed by BYU goalie Erika Woodbury, a penalty kick in the 78th minute.

Junior Katie Larkin continued her hot streak, scoring both goals for the Cougars to give her seven on the season and six game-winning goals.

"I saw the ball bounce my way both times, I turned to it and took the shots," Larkin said. "Everyone in practice is a scoring machine, and we're all doing our best to bring it to the games."

The game featured a scary moment as BYU junior Katie Fellow was injured heading the ball early in the game.

On the way down, her feet came out from under her, she landed on her back, and the back of her head hit the ground and knocked her unconscious. She was taken from the field on a backboard and taken to the hospital where preliminary tests indicate that she has feeling in her extremities.

The win was BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood's 200th victory.

"We got off to a good start, but it will always affect you when someone goes down the way Fellows did," Rockwood said. "Luckily, we were able to rebound as a team and play great soccer. The 200th win was not something I thought twice about today. We just want to keep winning."

The hard-luck Huskies (2-7-0) suffered their third straight defeat, each of them one-goal setbacks during the last six days. All three games were lost when opponents scored a goal inside the final eight minutes. UW lost 1-0 to No. 3 Portland on Sept. 19 and 3-2 at Utah on Saturday.
