Y. women's soccer clinches share of WCC championship
Provo • Six players scored a goal as No. 19 BYU defeated Saint Mary's 6-1 on Saturday at South Field to earn at least a share of the West Coast Conference women's soccer championship.
The Cougars (14-4-1, 8-1-0) outshot the Gaels (6-14-0, 2-7-0) 27-3 and won their seventh straight game.
