Sept. 15, 2013
SALT LAKE CITY - Utah soccer got a pair of goals in both halves en route to a 4-0 victory over Weber State this afternoon. Allie Wisner, Katie Taylor, Ashton Hall and Avery Ford were able to get their marks on the scoresheet for the Utes.
In the 11th minute, Kaycee Buckley crossed the ball from the far side and it was deflected in the air by Baylee Nielsen on to Wisner. The senior tapped it home for her third goal in as many games to give Utah an early 1-0 lead and just like last year in Ogden, her goal wound up being the eventual game-winner.
The second goal was completely created by Taylor in the 32nd minute. The junior lobbed a shot from the far right corner of the 18-yard box over the head of the Weber State goalkeeper to the near top corner. It was Taylor’s eighth goal of her Ute career and she tied Wisner and Nielsen for the team lead with three this season.
Utah’s first goal of the second half occurred in the 53rd minute when Jill Robison threw the ball in along the near sideline to Hall. The forward took a couple dribbles and then ripped a shot past the Wildcat goalkeeper for her second goal of the season.
The final Ute tally saw Megan Trabert keep an attempted clearance in the offensive end with a little under 10 minutes in regulation. The sophomore defender then fired a ball in from about 45 yards that was met by Ford. The junior headed her try home for her first goal of the season.
Cheyanne Mulcock picked up her first shutout of the season and second of her career as the Ute defense held the Wildcats to only one shot on goal. The Utes have now notched four shutouts this season.
Utah improved to 10-3 all-time vs. Weber State now having won four in a row and nine of 10 against the Wildcats.
The Utes are back in action on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. when they welcome local foe Utah State. It will be UYSA Club Night as pregame youth clinics with UYSA coaches and staff start at 5 p.m. on McCarthey Family Track & Field.
