Provo, UT - BYU Womens Cougars B squad took on a young Lowland U19 side on Saturday October, 9, 2010 and came through 48 - 0. The Cougars managed to work some depth on this squad for most of the game. Lowland U19 held the Cougars to a 7 - 0 lead in the first half. Ashley Burge (8) scored for the BYU Women. Lowland put on a good defensive effort in the first 30 minutes, when the Cougars were camped on the Lowland territory for most of the first half.
In the second half, after some personnel adjustments, Cougars tidied up their game, and executed a lot better. BYU women starters got to play the last 10 minutes of the game. The Cougars scored through Ashley Burge again, Kara Longhurst - 1 try + 2 conversions, Monica Jackson - try, Morgan Rovetti - 2 tries, Kristi Jackson - try , Eric Treasure - try and Chanel Arts kicked 2 conversions.
Rachel Longhurst (prop) and Melissa Massey, (open side flanker - 7), had outstanding games for the Cougars.
There is still a lot of things to work on especially with decision making, and fundamentals of ball handling. Body position in contact situation is concern, but we've got some time to fix that this semester.
