"Today was a great day. We live for this and we love this game. Saving a ball like that, wow, there’s no other rush like that. With my team playing like they were, made my job easy, and made today a perfect day, cloudy, rainy and everything, just a perfect day," Woller said. "The crowd was great today, plus the Utah State athletes just support each other so much. We had football players here, gymnasts, basketball players, everybody was here, plus our family and friends, and we love all the support we get from the crowd. It’s awesome and they become our best friends at home, even if we don’t know all of them. Having them roar behind me just gets me pumped to make the next save and the next one."

Utah State has a quick turnaround as it continues its season-opening two-match homestand by hosting in-state foe Utah Valley on Monday, Aug. 26, at Chuck and Gloria Bell Soccer Field at 4 p.m. The match brings back former Aggie assistant coaches as Wolverine head coach Brent Anderson and assistant coach Alyssa Lowry were both former USU assistants under Cairns.
