Wazzu Rebounds Against Cal
What goes around comes around and that worked out just fine for the Washington State University soccer team on Sunday afternoon. The Cougars lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to the top-ranked Stanford Cardinal two days ago but Wazzu turned the tables and did the same thing to California, winning 2-1, in overtime, over the Bears at Cougarland Field in Pullman. With the win, the Cougars improve to 11-4-1 overall and 3-1-1 in conference play.
In the first half, Wazzu had an early scoring chance but senior Kiersten Dallstream's shot hit the post in th e22nd minute of the match. Three minutes later, California scored to take a 1-0 lead that would hold up to halftime.
In the second half, after 17 minutes of play, sophomore Jacquelyn Roth connected on a free kick from 20 yards out and tied the score at 1-1, where it would stay until the end of regulation.
Five minutes into the overtime period, senior Carly Dobratz was taken down inside the box and Dallstream converted the ensuing penalty kick - her 13th goal of the season and 26th of her career - to give Wazzu the victory.
The Cougars outshot the Bears by an 18-8 margin in the match.
