Azusa Pacific women’s soccer (4-1-1, 2-0-1) dominated on the offensive attack Thursday night, outshooting the BYU-Hawaii Seasiders (1-2-1, 0-1) 19-3 in a 3-0 victory. More importantly, none of the three shots the Seasiders sent were on goal and all of them came in the second half.

Although the Seasiders owned the ball for the first 25 minutes, the game was completely one-sided in favor of the Cougars after a group substitution in the 26th minute, which included junior midfielder Alyx Williams and sophomore forward/midfielder Haley Fisher. The two combined to score nine of the 19 total shots. The Cougars broke through the Seasiders’ defense a total of three times during the game.

Freshman midfielder Haley Williamson scored the first goal off a rebound, her second goal of the year. Williams and junior defender Logan Chan also scored on the night. Chan’s goal was her first of the season.

Fisher found Williams for the second goal of the game, which came in the 58th minute, and facilitated the ball well against the Seasiders. She found freshman forward Katelyn Rogers in the first half for a shot that was saved by Seasiders goalkeeper Megan McCain and Fisher also fired a shot herself with 2:49 left to play in the first half.

Freshman goalkeeper Sarah Klinkenberg and the rest of the Cougar defense’s shutout made three total this season. This was Klinkenberg’s first full shutout on the year and the Cougars’ back four did not allow the Seasiders any legitimate scoring chances.

With the win, the Cougars move up to a 2-0-1 conference record. They only allowed one goal in the three games, the sole score coming in the 1-1 tie against Academy of Art on Saturday, Sept. 21. The Cougars look to continue their defensive dominance this Monday as they face Hawai’i Pacific (2-3, 0-0) for a 5 p.m. showdown at the Cougar Soccer Complex.
