After our win over Weber State, the Aggies defeated UVU at home 4-0 with two goals by Natalie Norris, and a goal each by Marissa Sanchez and Shantel Flanary. Freshman Kendra Pemberton recorded her first assist in her collegiate career when she crossed the ball to Shantel Flanary who headed it into the net.

On Sunday, the Aggies traveled to Idaho State where they battled through double overtime for a 0-0 tie. Several of the Aggies had great scoring opportunities. With the help of her defense, Molli Merrill recorded her second shutout and was also named WAC Defensive Player of the Week.

Home Away From Home

"HOME AWAY FROM HOME" by Lauren Hansen

Once again we defended our "home" field at Rio Tinto on Friday night. It was a great game against a great in state opponent, Weber. It was a very intense and action packed game. We scored 2 great goals!! Marissa played a perfect throw in to me and I was able to cross it too Shani who had a sickkkk diving header that got the whole stadium on their feet! Then our high pressured defense gave me the chance to take a shot and score :) Everyone played a huge part in our game that made us come out on top! When we all play as a team and to the best of our ability we are unstoppable! The whole atmoshphere at Rio Tinto is a feeling that I will never forget!!! One of the greatest experiences and memories I will have for a lifetime :)

Exciting weekend!

The Aggies had an exciting opening weekend beating Weber State 2-1 on Friday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, and beating UVU 4-0 at home on Sunday! Then on Monday, the Coach Cairns surprised the girls with a team building activity. She took the team to the USU ropes course. The girls were challenged, taken out of their comfort zones and had a total blast! Blog posts coming soon!!!!
