Cougar Soccer Picks Up 2-1 Win At Oregon
Oct. 27, 2000
EUGENE, Ore. - The Cougar soccer team picked up its third Pac-10 win of the season tonight in a 2-1 battle at Oregon. The Cougs are now 11-6-0 overall and 3-4-0 in the Pac-10 and looking to even out their record Sunday at Oregon State.
The first half ended scoreless, due much in part to WSU goalkeeper Lindsey Jorgensen (North Bend, Wash.) who came up with two big saves on what head coach Dan Tobias described as to strong chances to score for the Ducks.
Oregon held most of the run of play in the first half, outshooting the Cougs eight to three, but WSU came back 57 seconds in to the second half to take the lead, which they never relinquished.
Junior Beth Childs (Snoqualmie, Wash.) knocked in a corner kick which freshman Rachel Rodrick (University Place, Wash.) finished unchallenged. The duo came up big again 13 minutes later to increase the Cougars lead to two off another corner kick by Childs which Rodrick headed into the back of the net.
Childs two assists break the school's career record with 17, two ahead of the previous record she shared with senior Deka DeWitt (Auburn, Wash.).
DeWitt had a game-high seven shots, which vaulted her to first place in the school's all-time record books for career shots (281).
The Cougs remained strong for the next 30 minutes of play, outshooting the Ducks 15-9 in the second half, but broke down defensively with 10 minutes left giving up an Oregon goal to bring the score to 2-1.
'That goal gave them a lot of momentum, but we did a good job of holding on. It was a good Pac-10 victory on the road,' Tobias said. 'They are a good team.'
The Cougars take on Oregon State on Sunday in Corvallis, Ore. at 2 p.m. PT in their final road game of the regular season.
