LAIE, Hawaii – BYU-Hawaii women's soccer fell 2-0 to Cal State Dominguez Hills in their first official game of the season Thursday afternoon at the BYU-Hawaii soccer field.
"Our energy level was so low," BYU-Hawaii head coach Dan Dummar said. "We were not the same team we saw on Saturday."
Dominguez Hills (1-0) ended with seven total shots and five on goal.
Sami Feinstein's goal came off a cross from Anju Takei eight minutes into the game to give Dominguez Hills an early advantage. The Seasiders had a chance to equalize when Moore took a shot on goal in the 21st minute which was saved by the Toro's keeper Elisa Martin. A minute later the ball was crossed and headed by Gabrielle Jenson, but she was unable to capitalize as the ball went high.
In the 24th minute, the Toros had another scoring opportunity with a shot by Naomi Willey, but it was saved by Jones.
In the 66th minute, a header by Katrina Cohen gave Dominguez Hills a chance to increase its lead before Jones came up with the save. Two minutes later the Toros scored when Kelly Garzon found Daisy Vite with a through ball into the box, giving them the 2-0 lead.
BYU-Hawaii will return to the field Saturday to play Occidental at 3 p.m. HST. Live stats will be available online.
