Women’s Cougar Rugby of BYU rang up their third straight massive shutout, and their second in less than 24 hours as they pummeled Air Force 65-0 Saturday in Colorado Springs.
WCR beat Colorado 54-0 on Friday evening.
This is their third league win after joining the Eastern Rockies DI league in the West RFU (BYU has previously been part of the Pacific Coast), and they have yet to give up a point.
“Overall we played well on defense but we haven’t been tested much,” said Cougars Head Coach Tom Waqa. “We controlled the game and had a majority of the possession and territory. We have a whole bunch of talented girls, and the incoming freshmen have been picking things up really quick. I am very happy with that.”
Waqa said the games have not been pushovers, but the scores tell a different story, and the Cougar coach said he will definitely be looking for opponents who can put his team under pressure.
“Last year our toughest game was against Army,” he said. “We need to have those types of games earlier in the season.”
Still the BYU Cougars showed they can win two league games in two days, and are dominating their league.
In other league action, Colorado State defeated New Mexico 26-15. Club president Laura Whitney said the Rams did well to use their backs more than they have in past matches.
“We had a lot of injuries after the game with Air Force,” Whitney said. “We lost both our starting flankers. But we came together and just dealt with it and showed good organization.”
CSU improves to 2-1.
