The right-hander from West Point via Northridge High School raised his hands high in celebration after throwing 102 pitches, striking out 11 Colonels in nine innings, and walking only two batters in leading BYU to its fifth straight win.

"Everything was working," Mahoney said after teammates piled on him. The recently-returned LDS Church missionary topped out at 93 mph, but hovered around 90-92 throughout the two-hour game.

"Give a shout out to (Jarrett) Jarvis, my coaches and our defense, it was sweet, just amazing," he said.

"I could command my fast ball and my curve was filthy tonight, it was moving a lot, I could throw it for strikes, but my slider was my out pitch tonight," Mahoney added. "I started to feel it in the sixth or seventh inning. I knew it [the no-hitter] was definitely there going into the ninth inning and I wasn’t going to go for anything less."

The Cougars, now 6-8, gave Mahoney plenty of support from their bats, including a pair of doubles by Brock Whitney, and gloves as they opened the four-game series at NSU.
