OGDEN The Brigham Young University soccer team and the Ogden Outlaws faced each other Saturday night for the fourth and final time this season, and BYU was happy to come home with a 1-0 win against the Outlaws.
The win raised the Cougars' season record to 7-5-2, and the Outlaws fell to 4-8-2.
Just like the last three games the two teams have played against each other this season, the score was 0-0 at halftime. The second half of the game stayed scoreless until the 89th minute, when BYU's Aaron Gabbart received the ball about 35 yards away from the Outlaws' goal. After a quick fake to the right, Gabbart blasted the ball into the far post, winning the game for BYU.
Goalkeeper Brandon Gilliam helped lead the Cougars to the shutout with a couple of big saves to keep the Outlaws off the scoreboard.
"I think the key to the shutout was one vs. one defending," said goalkeeper Brandon Gilliam. "We were able to minimize mistakes on our end and keep them out of our net."
In the new Stadium at South Field's opening game, BYU will host Real Salt Lake on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Reserved seating is $10, and regular seating is $6 for adults and $5 for students and children. The first 2,000 fans to the game will win a free T-shirt. Tickets are available at the gate, or can be pre-purchased at byutickets.com.
