Watching this game with BYU up 2-0. The difference in team speed and technical skill is obvious. BYU is way better than OU. OU is barely able to hold the ball before BYU takes it again. In fact, I'd say the WCC must be very underrated. I've watched almost all the games this season and half the teams in the WCC looked better to me than OU does today. All three WCC teams won in the first round, so we'll see what happens. BYU appears to be through to the sweet 16.

Won 2-1. I assume #1 South Carolina is next.

S. Carolina beat Colorado 1-0 by making a PK in the 74th minute. I watched some of it. They are faster than OU was, but I think BYU is definitely capable of winning this one.

Santa Clara upset Stanford. Their goalie defended 14 SOG. Long live the WCC.

1-0 loss to South Carolina tonight on a PK. A sad ending to a truly outstanding season. I will miss the seniors, who have been SO good throughout their careers. Respect to Ashley Hatch, Michelle Vasconcelos, Elena Medeiros, Paige Hunt-Barker, Rachel Boaz and Miranda Bailey-Topham.

When you play a #1 seed on their home field you're only going to get 2 or 3 chances in the entire game. If you don't take advantage of them, you're going to lose. That's what happened. BYU ran into a very good team. Only had two or three chances and couldn't put any of them away.
