SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – McKenzie Evans scored for the second consecutive game and Katie Callister added a late goal to give BYU-Hawaii women's soccer a 2-1 victory over Dominican University of California on Saturday afternoon at Kennelly Field.
"We started off a little slow," BYU-Hawaii head coach Mark Davis said. "We gave up a goal early in the second half and we responded great. Tess Hobbs put in two great corner kicks to set up both goals and we came away with a huge three points."
The Seasiders (3-4-0, 2-0-0 PacWest) outshot the Penguins (0-8-0, 0-2-0 PacWest) 10-6 and 6-4 on shots on goal. The offensive pressure from BYU-Hawaii resulted in six corner kicks doubling Dominican's total.
With the game tied 1-1, Callister found the ball in a scramble in front of the net after a corner and was able to put the ball past a defender and into the back of the net. The goal gave the Seasiders the lead in the 86th minute and the Penguins last ditch effort in the 89th minute was gathered in by the BYU-Hawaii's goalkeeper Daniela Chacon.
Dominican struck first in the 48th minute after a cross into the box found the foot of Mariah Meza, who finished to the bottom left corner of the net.
Hobbs' fifth corner kick of the night found the head of Evans in the 72nd minute to tie the game back up and give the Seasiders momentum going into the final minutes of the game.
BYU-Hawaii returns home to take on Dixie State at 3 p.m. HST on the soccer fields at BYU-Hawaii. Live stats will be available online.
