The BYU men’s soccer team is making their presence known in their first season in the West Coast Division of the NIRSA Championship Series. After 15 years of competing in the Premier Development League (PDL), the Cougars transitioned into the new competition pool by facing Utah State on Sept. 22. BYU worked on keeping possession but were slow on capturing opportunities to score. They worked out their kinks by ending the game 1-1. BYU had their home opener against the University of Utah on Sept 27. They came together, capitalized on opportunities on goal, and beat the Utes 3-1.
