Rebels Take Down Cougars
BYU came into Las Vegas with hopes for an easy win against UNLV, and then momentum heading into their match-up with No. 1 Cal Poly in game two of their road trip. The Rebels had something else in mind taking the Cougars down 8 to 6.
The game started with a face off win by BYU, but tough defense by UNLV. It was scoreless for the first few minutes until Cougar attackman Chris Severson scored the first goal with a nifty behind-the-back. The Rebels didn’t flinch. On the next possession they tied the game. BYU gained possession, and Severson scored again with a low-to-low scorcher that snuck in under the UNLV goalie. The Rebels matched, scoring on their next possession, and sending a strong message. This was not going to be the easy win BYU was hoping for. Both defenses dug in, and the quarter ended in a 2-2 tie.
