Substitute Saeed Robinson scored twice over a five-minute span to give FC Tucson the lead, but the BYU Cougars quickly answered back with two goals in the final 20 minutes to come away with a 3-2 win Thursday in Provo, Utah.

Three minutes after entering the match, Robinson had a tap-in in the 65th minute to tie the score 1-1.

Robinson banged in his second goal off a BYU player to make it 2-1 in the 70th minute.

But FC Tucson's lead didn't last for long as Trevor Henderson pulled the Cougars even in the 72nd.

Eight minutes later, Bryson Pope gave BYU the lead for good.

BYU opened the scoring in the 24th minute when Tanner Whitworth's shot beat goalkeeper Michael D'Arrigo at the far post.
