A Familiar Sight In 2010 – BYU’s Jennie Marshall Celebrating A Goal
BYU 2 (Marshall 17?, Payne 55?) – 1 (Baumann 29?) Northwestern
In a close affair at Provo’s South Field, BYU continued their strong start to the season with victory over a battling Northwestern side. Cougars star forward Carlee Payne would net her second of the season, and the night’s eventual match winner in the fifty-fifth minute. Payne did her best to hold off two Northwestern defenders after a great pass by Kassidy Shumway before guiding a shot to the far post to hit the back of the net. Jennie Marshall had opened the scoring in the seventeenth minute by fighting through a tackle before ripping a shot past Northwestern goalkeeper Carolyn Edwards at the near post, also after an assist by Shumway. The lead would only last a little over ten minutes as Jennifer Baumann was on hand to drill a thumping header from Jill Dunn’s cross past Cougars keeper McKinzie Olson. Northwestern would have a few chances to force extra time, including on a Sam Greene effort after a corner in the final ten minutes, but BYU keeper Olson and a battling defense did just enough to ensure the Cougars stayed undefeated on the year.

-Lauren Trizna of Longwood walked away with the match ball, scoring a hat trick for the Lancers in a 4-0 win over VMI. Oddly enough, all three goals came from the penalty spot.
