Reynolds fuels Seasider victory

CARSON, Calif. – Natalie Reynolds provided all the offense BYU-Hawaii women's soccer needed to defeat Cal State University Dominguez Hills 2-1 Tuesday night at Toro Stadium.

The Seasiders (2-4-2, 1-1-1 PacWest) and the Toros (1-10-0) each had four shots on goal, but Kelsey East (2-1-1) had one more save than her counterpart to earn the victory.

BYU-Hawaii advanced into their fourth overtime match of the year, but it didn't last long as Reynolds took a free kick from just above the box that went off the left post and into the back of the net 19 seconds into the period.

The Toros opened the scoring in the 36th minute when Naomi Wiley put a corner kick to the back post and Ida Eriksson headed the ball into the back of the net for the lead. The Seasiders rose to match that when a free kick from Kate Gurney in the 38th minute found Reynolds at the top of the box and she put it into the left side of the goal to equalize the game 1-1.

Neither team was able to score in the second half. The Toros had three shots on goal, all saved by keeper Kelsey East, as well as three other shots that were either blocked or wide. BYU-Hawaii also accumulated three blocked or wide shots in addition to Jessica Smith's attempted shot on goal that was blocked by Cal State University Dominguez Hill's goalie, Alexia Flippen.

BYU-Hawaii will play Dixie State on the road on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. MDT. Live stats and video will be available online.
