Freshman goalie Mo Isom scored a goal from 90 yards to lead LSU past BYU, 4-1, on Monday night in Baton Rouge.

With BYU goalkeeper McKenzie Olson coming off her line to defend LSU's pressing front line, Isom's free kick took one bounce over her head and into the net.

"I'm in shock right now," Isom said. "I was not expecting to do that at all when I took that free kick. I felt the [BYU] goal in the first half was my fault. That just gave me the momentum, and I kicked that one with everything I had. I've never done anything like that before."

Michelle Makasini, Melissa Clarke and Roslyn Jones also scored for the Tigers. who extended their school record home unbeaten streak to 13 games.

"It was a great game. We just started to wear them down in the second half," said LSU head coach Brian Lee. "On our night, we can really go forward."

Sophomore captain Clio Tregear scored both goals for the Blue Devils in their 2-1 win Monday night in Storrs, their first win in eight meetings

"We set the tone early," CCSU coach Mick D'Arcy said.  "We played a great first 25 minutes and our defense stepped it up in the second half."
CCSU senior keeper Erin Herd made a pair of spectacular saves in the first 10 minutes of the second half to preserve the lead.

MILESTONE. Former U.S. international Jeff Hooker picked up his 200th career victory when Denver opened up their season with a 3-1 win over New Mexico. Two days later, the Pioneers won, 1-0, over Colorado.

THIRD TIME IS CHARM. After three days of non-stop rain courtesy of Tropical Storm Fay force two postponements, the 2008 season finally got under way for No. 5 Florida State.

The 2007 national runner-up Seminole blanked, UCF, 5-0 Monday afternoon.
