BYU Takes On The Northwest (and Texas)
BYU concluded their NWC campaign on Saturday, ending with a 3-1 record on the weekend featuring a gritty win against the tournament host Washington 13-10 in a wet showcase game to go along. They also notched a 9-7 win against a volatile UVic team, while their only loss was a 13-10 slugfest against a title contending UBC team. Lauren Hall did an excellent job conducting the BYU O-line against everything thrown at them. Abbie Davis and Kate Moulton have the speed, disc skills, and elusiveness that could only be made in a lab, but what sets them apart from a lot of players in the division is the tenacity they have both in and out of possession. Their game against Texas didn’t feel as close as the 13-7 score suggests.
