BYU soccer: Mathews and Bowen lead BYU to 2-0 victory over Pacific
Seniors Madie Lyons Mathews and Bizzy Bowen each netted a goal to help BYU capture a 2-0 win over conference foe Pacific.
“I just thought that we played a spectacular game,” BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. “I thought we came out strong right from the very beginning. We had a nice early goal from Madie and that makes a big difference when you score early because you are able to establish your confidence.”
Mathews netted the first goal of the game and the 10th of her career in only the second minute of play to put BYU (5-5-3, 2-1 West Coast Conference) up 1-0. After the ball was bobbled back and forth just past midfield, Mathews received a through pass from Makayla Colohan past the Tigers’ defenders to drill a shot from the top of the box past the keeper to the bottom left corner of the net.
In the 42nd minute, BYU was awarded a free kick about three yards outside the box. Bowen sailed the ball into the top left corner of the net just over the hands of Pacific keeper Henrikka Makela. It marked Bowen’s 10th career goal and third of the season.
